3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 didn’t really show up. It was a tad sweeter then most browns I’ve had but no real honey flavor to speak of.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. That’s my buzz.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Thanks Hopscotch. Pours mostly clear light amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is honey and spices, flowers and orange marmelade. The flavour is flowery and honey with some malty and light citric notes. Brown ale? No. Different and interesting? Yes indeed!

Brown in the glass with a touch of red. A bit flat, not much of a head to it. Sweet spicy aroma some fruit and cinnamon. More of the same for the flavor, cinnamon, banana, vanilla, and a hint some of the honey notes. Overall, drinkable...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, deep amber with a short, off white head.
Scent is malty...honeyed.
Taste is strongly honey,...a little nutty. Maybe a little pear and vanilla.
Very sweet and creamy.
Sticky, sugary....cream soda notes.
Good, if a tad clingy.
