A 500ml bottle with a BB of Aug 2014, so it's a bit out of date. Hope it's still alright. Purchased last year for Sainsbury's Beer Hunt 2013 and stashed in a cupboard. The label mentions that this beer contains honey from the Norfolk Lavender Company.

A: Poured into a straight pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A hazy golden hue with fine sediment and good carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer.

S: Aroma of grainy malt with hints of mild honey, floral notes, ale yeast and faint husks. Subtle but pleasant.

T: Tastes of grainy malt with a dry finish. Notes of mild honey, subdued floral hints, ale yeast, husks, stewed leaves and a touch of sweetness. A twinge of cardboard in the background. Well-attenuated, followed by a restrained, leafy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and good body for the strength. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of grain, faint honey sweetness and stewed leaves/cardboard.

O: Quite nice; a treat for a warm day. Looks lovely, while the aroma and flavour possess a delicate floral honey character underpinned by grainy malt. Stewed leaf bitterness detracts slightly. Good body. Tasty, and worth a punt if you come across it.

500ml Bottle: BBD end of July 2014, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 11th Oct 2013.

Drier than I expected from the name, no honey sweetness in the aroma or taste until it began to warm a little. It was however very nice, crisp, refreshing and easy to drink from the start. Obviously over chilled, because it grew sweeter and more honey-fied once it had sat for a while.

Clear golden body, a white crown that turned into a wispy covering and collar to quickly.

Hop nose and taste, fairly bitter getting sweeter late on, and as already mentioned dry in nature.

Sainsbury's Great British Beer Hunt 2013

Pours slightly cloudy. Straw colour. More blonde ale than pale which was the only category which would fit. Slight head. Looks innocuous.

Mild hop with hint of honey. No lavender noticed.

Sweet and dry with very little malt and some wheat. Very little alcohol.

Very thin and short.

Sorry - not for me.
