Clover honey characteristics are so well known they have become standards of taste and aroma for describing honey. For instance, a honey may be described as having a strong Clover nectar aroma or a light Clover nectar flavor. Clover honey is light colored tending toward light amber depending upon where it is harvested. Its aroma is delicate, sweet and flowery with hints of freshly cut grass or hay; suggestive of spicy cinnamon and plums. Its taste is clean, mild and very sweet that lingers in the mouth. It crystallizes quickly into a fine-grained solid white mass.
