1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Originally rated August 2006. Second beer tasted from Dave’s menu. Pours a copper-brown colour with a decent off-white head that is creamy, has good retention and leaves above average lace. Highly carbonated and has a malty nose with alcohol and light hop bitterness. Starts off with some metallic taste, but then goes into a more pleasant hoppy finish. Some grain and mild... well lets just say it is bland. You can taste more the sweetness from the honey when drinking from the bottle. From the glass, it was overall not that good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of a sweet pale lager-a hint of honey, but that macrobrew malty scent is still there. The honey is very, very subtle in the taste. Palate is smooth, almost no carbonation. Medium body. This one could do better with higher hop content.

The highest rating is the appearance, its beautiful, mild malt, a hint of honey, way better in the afternoon. I liked it too.

The label won’t fool you. This is really quite subpar and a juvenile attempt at a dark lager. What I got as styrofoam and vinegar was supposed to be the alleged honey brown taste. Gross

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Brown in colour. Small aroma of malt with a slight sweetness. Flavour was very bland, slightly sweet. Not much body. Finishes slight sweet. Very bland and boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lots of slams here on old Dave Nichol but nevertheless, I like this one. Light malt flavour, subtle sweet honey aftertaste.

Not much to this one. bit darker than Sleeman's Honey Brown. Pretty thin on body and flavour.

This one was not fun to drink. I thought 'honey brown' was supposed to mean that it had some honey smell and taste and that it was brown. Dave must have missed that meeting.
