Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet malt and sugary honey. The taste is nice, but feels lije a processed flavor. not a bad beer at all.

Not a bad beer. Nothing great either. A 24oz can is 1.59 and a 12 pack is 10.99. For that price it's worth a try. Not much taste to this beer..kinda a metallic aftertaste. Looks very light brown..feel is pretty light. Not bad in a pinch trying to catch a buzz.

Light smooth taste another good session beer. Slightly more carbonated than I like but overall still a good beer. Would definitely recommend on price alone.

I definitely prefer this to most any macro brews. It's a cheap, very drinkable, overall decent beer. Not heavy at all because of the honey, although the honey flavor obviously doesn't come through. Love the price and drinkability.

Look: not brown or honey but in between. I think it's a good colour. Head dissipates pretty fast.
Aroma: neither here nor there. No hop. Not particularly honey,-scented. Smells like a decent American Standard, I guess.
Taste - pleasant and the honey is noticeable in flavor but not in alcohol burn (I've made my own mead and know how easily that can hit a high ABV). I think it's tasty but I'm a Genesee fan these days. Not too corny (like Cream Ale), not just malt sweet (like regular Genesee). Easy drinking.
Feel: not bitter in the least, clean finish.
Overall - a really good 85ยข beer. 4.5% ABV so sessionable. Beats bland Bud/Coors by a mile. Easily worth the price.

I might just retire to Rochester. Beer, baseball and hockey. Short drive to Buffalo for NFL games. Lake effect snow. What the hell. .

Brown pour, looks decent, head dies very fast on it before you can really get a measurement or feel for it. Mild and light brown. No hopping evident in the nose, but there is a pleasant sweetness to it.

Taste also seems to be lacking hop characteristics, the carbonation even is lower thereby contributing to that lacking aspect. The sweetness dominates, needs to be offset a little better by something. Too much honey. Too much sweetness.
