I had a very fresh bottle I picked up in Wisconsin while visiting family. Really good, I thought this would be another beer that was too sweet, but it's almost perfect for what it is. Amazing on a hot summer's day, it's definitely not a "poor" beer.

APPEARANCE: A clear, golden/straw. A finger of white head that lasts a little while and leaves some mild lacing down the glass. Nice level of carbonation rising.
AROMA: Sweet, honey, malty, grainy and a little earthiness.
TASTE: The aroma accurately describes it.
FEEL: Average level of carbonation, a little sticky, drier towards the finish, medium thin body.
OVERAll; A little on the sweet side, could use a bit more in the way of a bittering hop for balance.

From notes taken 05/18/16:

Clear, pure, very pretty golden yellow, very sparse flecks. Whitish head of lower-moderate retention. Honey, wheat, mild yeast mustiness, lightest fruity esters to the nose. Tastes similar to some very cereal-forward Belgian Pales I’ve had. Some malt and wheat tartness. Honey is more subdued than even what you’d find in a number of Pale and Adjunct lagers. Notice it more in the back, and more so flavor than sweetness. Light- to medium-bodied, refreshing, mouth-coating, well carbonated with tingles and suds. Overall, velvety mouthfeel.

I love this beer during the summer time. I am not big on hints of taste. I haven't fully developed into that like I use to be on cigars so this is a poor mans review. It tastes like honey and wheat when you drink it. Like it on hot summers days with burgers, steak, or whatever else you decide to cook up. It is light and you will not be disappointed if your looking for a honey flavored beer.

Pours a light straw yellow and slightly chill hazed.

Wheat, light honey sweetness.

Honey, wheat, fresh grain, and herbal hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, fresh.

Overall, light in flavor but goes down easy. An enjoyable hot weather beer.
