Coffee, hate and Lucky Strikes unfiltered is an old Immortality Formula.
But seriously, Honey, Lemon Juice, Apple Cider Vinegar and Paprika seems to be a cure all as well.

Here's an interesting article:
Does honey last?
The honey could be contaminated with pesticides or other pollution, the pollens from certain plants can be harmful so be mindful of what batch it is.
It can ferment but that's not a huge deal, and it can degrade if improperly stored - but still should be safe to consume.
The article goes into further depth but in your case I'd guess it's gotta still be safe to consume though it may be weaker than it used to be.
Why remove the pollen?
We can only assume to prevent the majority of the public from obtaining all the benefits found in raw honey. Removal of all pollen from honey “makes no sense” and is completely contrary to marketing the highest quality product possible, Mark Jensen, president of the American Honey Producers Association, told Food Safety News.
