Beer Review –
Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden honey. Looks just like what you would expect a honey beer to look like. Nice white head with decent lacing.
Smell: Almost strictly honey scented. There is not mistaking this beer for anything else. I could not pick up any other scents other than a very little hops.
Initial Taste: Honey! There is not much else to say except the honey flavor overwhelms the beer. Due to the crazy amount of honey flavoring in this beer not many other flavors can make themselves apparent.
Thoughts: I’ve always been a fan of honey beers. I enjoy the Full Moon honey and have been known on occasion to drink HoneyBrown when the mood strikes me. But I just can’t seem to get any enjoyment from this particular honey infused concoction. It feels as though Michelob tried too hard to make this beer a honey beer and ended up making it taste artificial and overly sweet. If they could restrain themselves a bit and lighten up on the honey flavorings…they may have a drinkable beer. But until then I suggest you stick with the other honey offerings out there in beerland.
