Cold day? Honey Badger don’t care. He’s an easy drinking golden ale flavored with caramel, Munich and Vienna Malts, and locally farmed honey. Balanced with three varieties of hops to give a refreshing, clean finish, he’s the perfect beer for fighting cobras, eating bees or any other seasonal activity!

****

Poured into a pint glass at the LB brewery. Pours lighter bronze, with little foam but some lacing. Subtle malt nose, very minor. Light flavor, small honey sweetness, thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Smooth and easy. The hops poke through a bit much. Pretty good.

Slightly skunky smell with even worse taste. No honey to speak of. Not good
