look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a small spice then nothing. In the taste, mild spiciness, and a small hop presence. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry spice in the aftertaste. Somewhat a biere de garde, with a Christmas like spice to it.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: A light-orange transparent body with a fizzy one-finger head that quickly dissipates
S: Loads of malt along with a strong dose of honey and a hint of ginger, as the label promises
T: Lots of malts & honey with a hint of spice. Fairly sweet
M: Light to medium bodied, a bit of pleasant carbonation but again a sweetness that is very foward
O: Nice overall, particularly in the nose, but the sweetness is out of balance with the rest of the beer

Pours a nice looking ale. A orange-golden color with a bit of haze and a good amount of carbonation that creates a thin white head with great retention throughout the beer.
Good smell of honey with good cereal notes as well.
Taste is very nice. A good amount of cereal barley with a good sweetness from the honey. A bit of hoppy shot at the end as well.
Mouthfeel has a very nice smoothness to it. Very smooth, but a slight crispness makes it very refreshing.
Drinkability is great. A lot of good flavors in this beer, but they balance each other very well and make a nice drinkable beer. A very limited one, that I would grab if given the chance.
