Fuller's Honey Dew

Fuller's is from London, England by the Fuller, Turner and Smith Griffin Brewery. This is a 5.0% ABV certified organic ale that is brewed with honey. The beer pours honey golden (no pun intended) and orange in color. There is an inch of  pure white foamy head that dissipates quickly. The honey is right out front in the aroma. I have tried many beers that use honey, but none has been so pronounced in the aroma. There is also golden grain and citrus and lightly floral hops. The taste follows the aromas, lots of rich honey and lesser grain and citrus. It is well carbonated and tingles the mouth. It has enough hops to cut the honey sweetness and finish dry instead.
