Classic Honey Beer

Category: Flavored Ale

Date Tasted:

Gold color. Aromas of buttered corn husk, fresh baked baguette, and hint of chestnut honey and caramel with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long apple butter and honey on toast, ripe pear and honeydew melon, and peppered watercress finish. A pure and tasty honey flavored ale with nice length, balance, and solid beer character underneath the fruity sweetness.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Flavored ales may be flavored with, or affected by, the addition of unusual ingredients including chocolate, coffee, chili peppers or even juniper. In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements, and overall drinkability. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Williams Brothers Alba Scots Pine Ale, Southern Tier Pumking and Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.
