Can brought back by my lovely wife. A: Reddish brown with a thin creme color head. Very light lacing. N: Honey, malt, biscuit, some earth and heather, white peppercorn. Dough and fresh harvested grains. T: Mostly sweet and light bitterness. Touch of coffee like acidity. M: Light body, soft carbonation, no alcohol. O: Tasty, clean English Brown. Honey is a nice addition. Glad to have a 6er.

bottle. light brown with one finger head. fairly light malt body for a brown ale. light to medium honey sweetness. not a traditional brown, but a nice easy drinking brown ale.

Foxbush (1487) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz Can at Dream Lake in Alabama The ale poured a light brown color with off white head with lacing. The nose detects a hint of honey and caramel. The honey adds some softness to the ale that is very pleasant. The ale had medium body with average carbonation. The straight forward , sessionable swallow wraps up with a nice honey finish.

Pours a clear light brown color with off-white head. Caramel malt and a weird floral note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet and floral.

rdixon77 (1581) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Old rating. Amber colored. Heavy on malt and caramel. Honey adds a bit of sweetness. A bit cloying and heavy overall, for being a brown ale.

aracauna (3252) - Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Slightly hazy dark reddish brown. Some nuts, honey and caramel, but at first I was reading that as winey, but changed my mind as I’ve gone along. Solid brown.

draft at sam and nicks? (bbq joint) in Birmingham; had a couple of these and really enjoyed it. aroma was malt and nutty honey. nice amber pour, nice palate for style. taste was malt sweet then nuts and a nice honey sweetness - not overly sweet - well balanced; would drink several again...

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Not sure why this is marketed as a brown ale. It is red in color and there is no trace of malty brown ale flavors. Juicy fruitiness reminiscent of strawberries dominate the tongue.

vipinvelp (2830) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Clear amber w/ off-white foam head. Aroma is barley, sweet. Sweet honey barley taste. Not too outspoken. No aftertaste to speak off either, bit flat beer. (Velp 201409)
