Just as flowers have many different colors, nectar can come in a variety of different hues. The honey that bees make from nectar ranges in color from pale amber to dark brown. The pollen grains suspended in the honey adds extra color too. Generally speaking, lighter colored honey is milder tasting, and darker honey has a bolder profile. The flavor and color of wildflower honey can change drastically throughout the growing season as more and more flower species bloom as the season progresses.
