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!

Sort of sour cherry vibe. Bitter and pretty nasty. Tastes more like Pil than any brown ale I've had.

MunBro (319) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Advent day 10. Aroma is sweet with a touch of honet and malts. Not really any distinctive taste here other than a touch of honey. A very typical beer. Went down very smooth but nothing special.

DuffMan (6646) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle, day 10 Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2013. More golden amber than brown, with a rapidly fading head. Aroma is sweet, not truly honey, some perfumey berries maybe. Sweet, thin caramel with an awkward tartness. Worst of the calendar so far, worse than the Hurricaine Amber.

Malbers (18) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours an amber with thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of honey and a weird sulfur like compound reminiscent of a lager...funny cause its an ale. Flavour is lackluster, reminds me of a more flavourful Sleeman’s Honey Brown (fellow Canadians will know)...which may or may not be a good thing.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz brown bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar ’13. Deep gold pour, fairly clear, too light for a brown ale. Small white cap that dies out quickly. Nose has some sweetness, a bit of honey and nut and grain in the nose. Taste has mild chocolate notes, grain, light caramel and honey notes. Tastes a bit off, an odd tang in the back end that I did not enjoy.

Reimer96 (1195) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
CBAC day 10. Pours a clear medium brown with almost no head. Aroma of honey, nuts and green apple. Taste is some bready malts, honey maybe slight nut and chocolate but dominated by the green apple off flavor and high carbonation. I feel this is the base to a decent beer but either fermented too high or something got in the fermentation.

andrewturba (961) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Craft beer advent calendar day 10! Pours a nice clear copper with a thin dull white head. Aroma is sweet honey, English bready malts, and mild fruity esters(kinda apple like, possible Acetaldehyde). Flavours are mild sweet honey, mildly sour green apple, sorta cidery like(possibly Acetaldehyde) and slightly malty.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Advent day 10. Quickly disappearing head on hazy dark amber. Aroma of honey and medicinal metallic notes. Honey flavour gives way quickly to vinegar which was hard to place at first.

RumRunner101 (764) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Very clear, light brown pour. Aroma is muted, but some honey and fresh baked bread comes through. Relatively light bodied and thin with some honey sweetness and old bread flavour. Lacking any real flavour or finish.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours a thin brown body. Nose of rotten apples and cantaloupe. Somewhat tart and tonic. A very poor Brown Ale, an even worst Honey Brown.
