Served on-tap at Yard House in Vegas. Poured into a pint glass, the beer had little to no head. Standard golden-yellow color, the beer itself was pretty highly carbonated. No notable aroma, and the taste had not a hint of actual honey. The flavor, overall, was light, and bordered on sour. It was a smooth beer, and easy to drink, but that doesn't make it enjoyable to drink by any means.

Tap. Hazy gold with fuzzy white head. Aroma of malts, wheat and very slight honey. Tastes of honey, wheat and malts. Light bodied. It’s okay

On tap during our summer trip in August 2009 at the Yard House in Newport Beach. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a pale blonde color with a bit of a white head that dies down quite quickly without really leaving any lace behind. The nose brings forward some cloying honey with a tad bit of grain in the background. The taste is the same, with some sweet honey flavor and not really much else. I guess there is a bit of bread crust in the background, but that doesn't really help to balance anything out. This is fairly light and hits the palate gently, but the taste really just doesn't do it for me.

If you're looking for a light beer with a strong flavor, this is a great one to try. It has a nice finish. A great beer for a summer party.
