Fuller’s Organic Honey Dew

From the Brewery: 008

“Organic Honey Dew is the UK’s best selling organic beer. Light and golden with a zesty edge and a bitter-sweet flavour, Honey Dew is a naturally palatable brew that is Soil Association approved.” 5.0% ABV

The Pour: 009

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into my craft pint glass. The color is golden yellow and clear. The head is white and foamy. The beer appears very effervescent, with lots of carbonation crawling up the side of the glass. Almost no lacing is left on the glass.

The Nose: 010

Light citrus/pear-like hops, as well as some sweet honey. Both are pretty light, and nothing else is offered.

The Mouth: 011

Medium-bodied, thicker than I expected, and easy going down. Not much flavor offered initially, finishing very light and easy. The aftertaste if of very light citrus hops from the nose, as well as a fair amount of typical light-ale graininess. Sweetness and honey-like flavors come through shortly thereafter on the palate, and mix with the grain.

Final Thoughts: 012

I’ve yet to be super impressed by any golden/honey blonde type ales, and Honey Dew continues that streak. There is nothing inherently bad about it, but the flavor is too light and simplistic to be anything other than a middle-of-the-pack brew. It is very light, and at 5% abv could certainly be sessioned if so desired. 6/10
