As the wax melts, the scent disappears
We bought this as a Father's Day gift. On "cold" sniff - brand new (unlit) - it smells exactly like a frothy mug of beer - hops, malt liquor, and a light crisp fruity/fresh scent. I thought it'd be perfect for my husband.
When lit and the wax is warm and as it began to melt, it was very light and mild. As it's gotten past the half-way mark, we can't smell anything.
Also, the wax melts poorly. Not even an IllumaLid can get it to a nice wax pool.
Disappointed. I know I could return but the jar is over half-way gone and I don't feel right about bringing it back in. We will finish it but On Tap will not be a repurchase.

Wasn't sure about this one when I first saw it, but would highly recommend it. It's got a great throw which fills my entire kitchen and living area and I love the scent. I was worried it would smell like stale beer, but it smells lovely, just like a fresh pint!

Want a man wants
Bought this for myself and very happy with the smell, it very much reminds me of warm summer evenings spent with my grandfather at a pub garden, the smell of beer and shandy in the air. I would gladly buy this again, and honestly I wish the man candle range wasn't limited edition.

I bought this Yankee Candle as I am a collector. I never expected I would particularly like this candle due to the nature of the fragrance. I received the box with the candle in, I knew exactly what it was before I opened the box. Really sweet smell of beer with plenty of froth on the top of it. It really is amazing how they have captured that fragrance in a candle so well, yet again.

Smells exactly like you think it would
This candle seems more a novelty item than something you really want to burn. It has a strong stale beer smell--the kind of smell you burn candles to try to get rid of, not recreate!
That said, since it really actually DOES smell like beer, I congratulate YC for managing to produce the scent!
