after trying it again, i’ve come to the conclusion that it’s good out of the tap, not so good in the bottle.

I am not a dark beer drinker, and this stuff is pretty tasty. Very full flavor and not too much honey.

This is one of the most boring beers I have ever had! After one the beer just dies! The flavor disipates and is no where to be found. These Honey browns are about as tasty as something else that is brown?

I’m a big fan of Honey Brown. It’s got just the right amount of honey and is a very smooth beer. A 12-pack was only $8 and is a terrific value.

I was ready to rake this over the coals, but it was tolerable.
Toffee aroma. Light amber, not brown. Tangy, sweet. Fizzy with solid mouth. Sort of a cross between lager & an amber.

I like this. Slightly sweet, but still bitter enough to make you think it’s a beer. One of my more favorite of the brown beers.

Not very bown. Not a lot of honey, even if I can probably taste a hint of it. Other that that it is just empty.

Umm. Someone told this was a wonderful beer. Not only can I not taste the honey, but it reminds me of the typical ’yellow fizzy beers’ of typical Americana. I was not impressed. I think I need something stronger. Plus, I am not sure why this is called American Dark. It was not dark at all.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 Nice deep unclouded amber color on the pour, the head is modest in size, beige in color, texture frothy, and lace adequate to cover the glass. Carmel apple sweet at the front, malt and fresh, a decent nose, start cloyingly sweet, top skeletal, finish, minimally acidic, hops scarce, dry aftertaste, drinkable but barely average, another reach for me.
