Very sweet. Not terribly dissimilar from an adjunct lager in flavor. Not for me.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and purely golden in color with an off-white, near two finger width head. Fair retention, dissipating to a thin, velvety looking froth that spans the surface. Not much for lace, save a couple of streaks and a spot here and there.

Smell - Wheat and honey, with a faint lemon-like citrus note.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mild honey, with a very clean wheat flavor. A faint note of mild lemon and floral hop character adds a touch of brightness and depth. Clean, simple and harmonious finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation. Slightly crisp with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - I'm not always a fan of lighter flavored beers, but this one has a flavor profile that speaks to my palate. Nice, simple and clean notes of wheat and honey that meld together well, then that touch of lemon and floral hop adds a nice finishing touch. It would make a beautiful beer for warmer weather, but even in the depths of winter it's a nice alternative to the heavier stuff.

Pours a straw yellow, carbonation is medium to high, taste is crisp, sweet and very lightly hopped. Aroma is sweet with some honey notes. A great summer beer.

Sweet without being too cloying for a honey beer. Nothing about this beer is really bad, I just felt that the honey, wheat, and yeast flavors could have synced up a bit better.

Slightly clouded amber with a tiny white colored head.

Smells of honey and Tea.

Starts out tasting of honey and crackers. Toasted grain and tea flavors.

Mouthfeel is average.

Overall pretty Blah beer.

A cloudy, golden orange beer with a quickly fading off white head. The smell is mostly honey with bready yeast. The taste is sweet with the distinct taste of honey. There is a little bitterness at the end but a lot of bread yeast in there. Not a bad beer but big on the honey and bread tastes.

on tap at North Park tap room - smells bready and biscuity with significant honey sweetness, as expected. pours pale straw colored, perfectly clear with lower than expected head or retention. taste: continues with breadyness, honey sweetness and not enough hop bitterness to balance it well. palate: just some restrained astringency going on. it finishes with lingering honey sweetness and fading bitterness. - not a bad beer. simple. easy. not a bad thing.
