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

12 oz can in Idaho.
Hazy amber body with a durable white head.
Aroma: an appealing mix of wheat bread, honey and yeast.
The same elements characterize the flavor, along with some earthy hops. Nether sweet nor bitter overall.

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.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a decent yellow color with a light transparency about it allowing some light carbonation streams to be seen rising. The aroma had a light honey arising about it. The taste was sweet and sticky honey slapping my lips in nicely but not overbearing. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium (yeah for a blonde showing a heavier body, hmmm...interesting, I diggin’ it). There was a slight honey aftertaste that bled into a sweet sticky finish. Overall, this one may come across as a fairly sessionable beer but if anything this blonde has some flavor to it. Don’t take this one for granted.

Not bad at all. I'm not a big fan of what I perceive as sweet pale ales but this one is a wheat beer with a nice balance of malty/biscuity backbone and some hop presence with of course a bit of honey. Goes down pretty smooth. Prost!

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.
