      This one looks like "honey yellow".

      Yes, that is likely a more accurate description. It’s always fun ( and frustrating) when I look at bottles on eBay and the seller’s description is often far from what I’d call it. I’m guessing that among the more serious groups of collectors there must be color guides they use for consistency.

      Sadly, no, the main association of American bottle collectors decided against a official colour guide due to the differences in pigments of ink on the pages and lighting. They can be had, but they all differ. The best one was for use in insulators, in which the publisher also gave guidelines for what type of light and to what intensity each piece was taken under. Sadly, I don't recall the name of the guide! But, honey yellow and screaming yellow are both well-known terms among bottle collectors.
