Honey Beer

A warm Golden Ale brewed with a blend of choice malts & hops to which we add a prepared infusion of honey and hops. The delicate sweet honey notes balance beautifully with the lemon & floral aromas of our Cascade and First Gold hops.


Tasting Notes


Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.


Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

ABV stands for Alcohol By Volume. It is a standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage.

IBUs ?

Brewer's Lingo


IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

From the drinkers of The Honey Thief

Had this a couple of times now, fantastic stuff, the fruity flavours come through but are no way overpowering… Sleek big cat, bible black honeysuckle I would never deny.

Drunk this fantastic beer at Knockengorroch festival last year but it sold out the first night, not seen it since.
