UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Nice Brown beer, with a little touch of sweetness due to the honey accent. Had it in a bottle so hard to rate on appearance and aroma.

Nice brown ale, but it is a bit sweeter than most brown aleís. Honey isnít really pronounced,but Just adds sweet notes

Draught @ Sprig in ATL. This beer was another let down. Great name - tastes tinny and thin.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2013
12 oz. brown bottle poured with a small but renewing head, producing good retention; crystal clear, deep amber color. S: Subtle and simple but pleasant malt aromas suggesting baked bread T: also simple but nice, featuring bready malts with hints of caramel and nuts. M: Medium carbonation. Too harsh and aggressive for style. O: Tasty and not overly sweet, but marred but an unexplicably harsh feel.

12oz bottle poured into glass. A brown ale with honey? Sounds like it could be a winning combo. However the honey didnít really show up. It was a tad sweeter then most browns Iíve had but no real honey flavor to speak of.

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - APR 26, 2013
Single bottle. Lighter brown pour with a little amber at the edges, medium offwhite head. Sweet, slightly grassy aroma. Not as much honey in the taste as the aroma (or name for htat matter) would imply. Pretty standard brown.

Red Solo Cup Tour of Grant Park - Beer 1 of 4 - Split this with my wife. As it was drank from a Solo Cup, the appearance rating should be taken with a grain of salt. Light head with a coloration of thin coffee, which seems stylistically appropriate. Nose made me think coriander. Diverse flavor notes of chicory, cinnamon, coffee, and malts. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Cybercat (3507) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2013
Malty aroma has a yeasty tone and a definite note of honey - real honey, homegrown honey. Pours a pretty clear dark amber, bordering on honey-brown, with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Satisfying malty flavor has a firm note of honey, plus hints of caramel and hops. Firm texture has a subtle but lively fizz and leaves a honey-sweet malty finish. Thatís my buzz.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at Burgers & Blues. Pours light brown with light head. Aromas of sweet malts, caramel, and honey. Flavor is much the same. Sweet and boring brown. Not bad but kind of bland.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle from 5 (5Bar?) in Birmingham. Pours a lighter brown without much head. Nose is sweet malt and grain. Taste is sweet, but this tastes closer to a dark lager than a brown ale. Slightly nutty. Metallic. Not so good.
