Top quality beer with a gentle sweetness, very quaffable. A good gateway beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a strange two finger head, very fizzy, almost like a soda pop. Head begins dissipating instantly. The honey is definitely the strongest aroma, but there is also a good malty note. Likewise on the palate, you definitely taste the honey, but it's not very sweet at all, and it's backed up by a solid malty backbone. The malt actually has an almost umami character to it, balancing out the restrained sweetness of the honey. Hops presence, if any, is quite weak. It is refreshing, a good beer to serve cold on a hot day. Overall an interesting, somewhat unorthodox beer, and not bad.

If you’re craving some refreshing drink during a bbq meal or a dinner, then this beer is right here for you. The body is very smooth and comes with a very delightful sweet, moreover, it still has a good beer taste, bravo!

L- Mid-gold, clear, pours with 5mm white head clearing swiftly.
S- Feint, thought I could briefly smell honey. ... Oh gawd, I'm such a plank, but in mitigation I do not read any lable's taste description before trying a beer! I thought the name Honey Dew and yellow lable, referred to yellow Honeydew melons; it doesn't, it's BREWED with honey.
T- Well, the honey flavour is pretty prominent, in fact it dominates the flavour here. I can taste hops into the dry finish but can't find much other flavour in between the two.
F- Given how pronounced the honey is the beer it isn't notably sweet, though my mouth keeps thinking it should be. But to me it feels like the main central body of feel is not very clear here, it's honey and then into some modestly dry hops.
O- Certainly different, interesting to try, it would help if you're a serious honey fan. I reckon this is going to be something of a 'love it or hate it' brew.
BB: 01/04/2020 500ml bottle. ps. I rate vs a mid-point score of 2.5 which = neutral on an aspect. Any negatives rate versus that mid-point and v-v.

i thought this was really good on tap, way underrated here, and a real cool way to showcase this tasty honey. i didnt know these guys did anything like this, quite modern and mass appeal, with all organic ingredients, pretty awesome. pale brassy color, quite clear, and with a lasting white head on it. aroma is gorgeous, sweet floral honey in its purest form, seems not real sugary, but the honey is crazy forward and natural, really well done there. a simple clean english malt base along with it and a mostly irrelevant ale yeast. the flavor is honey driven, natural as can be, nicely supported by the malt. this is light not not overly so, medium bodied, a soft toasted note to the malt, quite complex really, and the honey comes out more and more as it warms. it has a little texture from the honey too which is cool, makes you know its real, and its very springy and drinkable. this was excellent on a hangover, a somewhat delicate flavor thats balanced in a really cool way. i love how forward the honey is, i could have had a handful of these pretty easily. neat that its organic, and a fun something different here from fullers. recommended.

Bit of a twist to the standard golden. Honey provides a nice earthiness to the aroma and flavor. Tight white head and ample carbonation also notable.

Cerveza con una cabeza espumosa que se disipa en cuestión de segundos; de baja carbonatación y cuerpo ligero. Aroma a miel y poco mas. En boca es acuosa, con notas de miel, malta y vainilla pero ligeramente amarga.
