Reviewing from notes

A-pours yellow with a white fizzy head with average retention
S-Not much going on, a bit of a wheaty malt aroma, no hop aroma
T-Quite bland with some honey coming through in the finish. Even as the beer warms not much came through
M-A bit strange, it felt watery and chewy all at the same time
O-I think the honey hurt more than it helped with this brew. I guess a very inoffensive brew if thats what you are looking for

Didn't get a ton of honey flavor in this one, but that's honestly fine with me as it's not my favorite fermentable. Could use a little more balance on the hop-front, but overall, a solid effort
