Yellow, nice clarity, heavy carbonation. Aroma was sweet, I don't know how honey like it is, but sweet for sure.

Taste is almost a meld shandy wise of soda, lemonade, tea and whatnot. Expensive, and there's just so many better examples of hot weather beer that does the trick.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Look: Clear, light yellow. Off white head
Smell: Wheat, some earthy hops, a little banana,
Taste: Wheat, floral hops, honey, adjunct malts, slightly metallic. Overall a bit sweet.
Feel: Good carbonation, somewhat dry finish, a little watery.

It's okay at best. Drinkable, but not something I see myself getting again.

Poured into a can glass from a bottle with the date of May 30 2016 stamped onto it. Had a very good looking head which dissipated quickly, with minimal lacing. Outstanding clarity sums up its appearance. Tasted like...someone poured some lemon and honey into a Budweiser. Not for me.
