Pours orange with a slight off white head.

Smell is kind of skunky? Some mild wheat, yeast, and floral hops. Not what I'd expect for a pale wheat ale.

Taste is very wheaty, sweet with a touch of honey. Some floral hops are noted on the back end. It not nearly enough for a pale ale. It's pretty blah but that gives it general appeal and drinkability.

Feel is fine, light crisp and drinkable. Medium carbonation.

Overall is a fine drinking beer. Nothing special. It's not bad it just isn't good either.

A rather simplistic take on a wheat-plus-honey beer. Beer is straw yellow, perhaps with a brozny tinge, and surprisingly clear. Head is white, decays rather quickly, and leaves minimal lacing. Nose is malty and simple. Taste is like a very basic light ale with the added sweetness of honey that hits especially on the back side of the flavor profile. Minimal hops presence. Mouthfeel also minimal, just a slight slickness. Nothing offensive, really, but I've had a couple of other beers made with honey recently and they both had more complexity, more yeast presence, and the honey was more nicely blended than in this beer. Drink-by date was in November, so it should be relatively fresh.
