Honey Dew by Fullers - A to Z Blog Challenge

This beer is a very pale yellow, like 3 parts water, 1 part pineapple juice. It's crystal clear, no haze at all. Very little carbonation, and I'm wondering if they used any hops at all...

It's smooth and has a sweet taste of honey in the finish, but it's not the sweetness of honey, it's sort of a tart honey flavor, if that makes any sense... Says it's 5% on the bottle.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this beer is the fact that after having half the bottle, when I burp, it's like I just ate a bowl of honey nut cheerios. A very different feel for having a belly full of beer (which I have cause I just finished the posts for E, F, and now H... G is Guinness, which I'm familiar with, so I don't have to sample. ... Sorta wish I could right now though... )

At the end of the day, it's not a bad beer, but I'd need to be in the mood for it. Cool bottle though. Can't wait to blog on a beer I actually love... Bound to happen sooner or later.

I guess I'm a little jaded here. A friend of mine makes a honey stout that he calls "Honey... I need a ride home". It's a Guinness clone but has a bunch of honey in it, and is like, 15%, but still very smooth. I was expecting something like that.
