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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.

Honey aroma and flavor. Medium-heavy body. Flavor is a good dinner roll with butter and honey.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade with drowland - thanks! Pours a slightly murky medium brown with a light but persistent eggshell white head. Aroma has some chocolate accents, a touch of molasses. Flavor has a hint of honey sweetness, some toffee notes, a touch of pipe tobacco. Moutfeel has a nice fullness to it. Not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is light honey, grass and caramel. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a honey and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Typical honey brown ale, nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Color is a nice amber with a very small head. Aroma is a sweet, malty. Didn’t get much honey in the taste and the aftertaste kind of reminded me of a lager. Okay overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled on: 08/26/2013.
Appearance: Pours a light brown body, good clarity, with a small, short-lived, white head.
Smell: Toasted breadcrusts licked with light-colored caramel and honey with cooked fruit compote and faintest, merest hint of hops.
Taste: Sweetish taste of toasted malts, with a caramel bent, and, perhaps, some perceived honey. Lightly estery, with hints of golden raisin, apple. Very restrained hop profile with a low, low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s definitely a light, easy-drinking brown ale. I’m down for that, but, anyone looking for high hopping or a thicker, heavier brown might do best to look elsewhere.
