Far too sweet out of the bottle. Slightly redeems itself out of the tap, but I was still sick of this 75 percent through the pint. Cloying and sticky. Hearty, but I’m not sure I’d give this to a novice as a representation of a higher-quality product.

So ol’ JW was brewing a batch of beer and forgot to add any hops. Still, he thought someone would like it and marketed it well, cashing in on the sickly sweet glow that lingers on the finish - it’s not honey, exactly, but too artificial to feel malty.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 I can honestly say that honey brown was one of the most saisfying beers i have ever tasted. I can say nothing bad about it. It is best at a cookout or on the lake in my experience. Wow, how things change after time, after having good beer, this is only better than bud and no more.

Pretty good stuff at a good price. It does go well with food. Not a party beer or something to get a buzz off of, though

Pretty good beer. Not really one to savor, but will go down smoothly by the pitcher. This was a staple in my college days and complimented all-you-can-eat buffalo wings (spicy, of course) very well.

only slightly better than the mass produced lagers/pilsners in the U.S.

Very sweet lager, attractive amber color, a little watered down though.
