Blonde color, with little white head, disappearing. Smell is soon of honey, clearly. The taste is lighter, the honey note is less intense, but the beer is quite sweet, not really hops I could feel. Ok beer.

Pint on-tap at The Jack Horner pub in London (£4):
Not a bad beer at all from Fuller's, I definitely wouldn't say it's anywhere near the best that I've tried from them but it is a good tasting beer & one the grew on me as I worked my way down the glass. It started quite similarly to a lager, albeit with a lot more sweetness coming through from the honey & the feel of the beer was good as well.

The aroma is light but pleasant with lemon-lime and a hint of caramel-like sweetness. The mostly clear body is amber; the foamy head is somewhat rocky and lasts for the duration. The flavor is moderately fruity (cantaloupe?) and floral with soft, bready malt and very little bitterness. Nutty, toasty malt lingers in the finish. The carbonation is soft and fizzy with a moderate bite.

Very nice—tasty and super drinkable, almost to a fault.

Clear amber, thin coating. Nothing special. Very delicate aromas with subtle sweetness. Round and smooth taste of light smoky caramel. Zesty and rich feel. Flavorful after taste almost numbing the tongue (in a positive way).

Overall : Enjoying the tender taste and unique feel.
