Pourd from a 12 ounce bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a small white head that disappears to nothing. It looks a lot like a macro lager.

Smell: Smells like a macro lager.

Taste: Tastes like a macro with some honey. Overall this is a very disappointing beer.

Appearance - Golden yellow body with a nice quarter inch of pure white head.

Smell - Malt and honey aroma that is very tempting.

Taste - It starts out with a crisp malt flavor and moves on to finish with a subtle sweet honey taste. The flavor is smooth and well rounded for a mild brew.

Mouthfeel - The texture of this brew is slightly coarse even with a wet feel is has.

~ I enjoy this beer and am proud to say it's brewed only an hour and a half away from my home. If you haven't had a Honey Weiss, you need to try one and see what the buzz is about.

This was a pale gold colored beer, looks like most macros you would find. No head to be found. Theres a pretty watery taste to this drink, along with a slight wheat flavor. This isnt something you would be looking for if youre looking for a good tasting brew. Maybe if its hot out and youre looking to put down a lot of drinks, but other than that stay away.

pours a crystal clear straw color with a few fingers of tight white head after a hard pour.

smell is sweet, with pale malts and some mild hops. corn is detectable in the smell, which pushes the smell off-balance a bit. the honey is only distant in the smell, not providing much sweetness.

taste is malty and sweet up front, with wheat and citrus being the focus. notes of honey, yeast, and mild grassy hops. the taste is much more balanced than the smell; sweeter and more refreshing.

mouthfeel is medium-light bodied, slick and creamy. very smooth liquid.

drinkability is great. there isn't much here to lower drinkability; this is a light brew without any bold or excessive flavors. mild and refreshing, which is just what it is trying to be.
