COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied English Brown Ale is smooth and easy to enjoy. Widflower honey is used to compliment the roasted malts and subtle hop profile. Whether you’re preparing a delcious meal or enjoying a cool southern evening by the fire.

You better have your honey!

Tasted from glass at DLD. Poured by a nice lady from Alabama. This is on the sweet, but the honey does not come in too cloying. Pours a light, bubbly brown with a big-bubbled head. Smell doesn’t yield much up besides nice malty flavor. Taste does have some caramel malts, hops for balance instead of bitterness. Honey in the mix keeps away the dry or nutty finish of an English brown ale. Maybe a bit of "sweet tea" was intended? Could have a good shot at becoming a "native" Southern style. And I get to knock Alabama off my list of states!

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2010
12 ounce bottle from brentfeesh. Thanks Brent! Poured from a bottle into a brandy snifter. Appearance is an amber color with no head. Aroma is like a sour with some malts. Taste is fruity with malt and some minor hops at the end. Overall a very enjoyable beer. One to savor and take in all the subtleties as it warms.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2010
On tap at Hopjacks in Mobile. Pours a deep, hazy amber brown with a thick creamy beige head that recedes to a hefty collar and swirl on the top. Aroma is subtle with some sweet caramel malts and faint fruity sweetness. Taste has a bit more kick to it with some floral hops joining the sweet malty backbone. Tingly carbonated feel. Medium to light body and very drinkable. Not all that complex but not a bad brown ale. Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting.

Thanks to Kirkpjr for sending this out in the under 100 BIF. I poured it into a Sam Adams glass and was greeted with two fingers worth of off white head that trails off to a thin sheet of lace. The body of the brew is clear brown. The aroma is sweet and bready malts and yeast . The flavors mimic the nose but with a light hop bitter finish. That kind of thru me seeing this was a honey brown. I thought it would be sweeter and show more of the honey in the flavor department. It had a medium feel in my mouth with good carbonation. Overall I liked the brew and it was an easy brown ale to drink but... It did come off as a rather average brown ale to me.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of daknole. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a thin off white ring. The aroma has a pleasing honey sweetness with caramel and some fruits. The flavor opens with a honey laced caramel topped bread before becoming more dry and bready in the finish. Medium bodied and enjoyable to the end. This is one of the better brown ales I’ve tried. Thanks Dak!

Bottle...thanks to backforty. Pours a nice clear brown color with a small mostly white head. Aroma starts with a nice dose of honey and caramel, followed by a lightly yeasty and bready note. Flavor is loaded with nice honey notes, caramel, very light hops and a small alcohol warmth. Good beer for a style that is usually botched.

6/17/10. On tap in a pint glass. The aroma is rather lacking, some plain malt and a little bread. The flavor is sweet malts up front with a short dry, roasted finish.
