Not much first taste, then sweetness of the honey hits. Goes down a bit like a soda. Very sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There was decent smoke with this beer. It poured a darker gold with a small white head. The aroma is honey and very sweet. I also pick up wheat, wet grass, corn, and water. The taste reminds me of a basic macrolager with sweet honey added in but that is not a knock to it. There is a little bit of bitterness and corn in the flavor.

12 oz. bottle thanks to Gary. Appearance: 3 fingers tan head, golden color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: honey, caramel. Palate: light body, average to soft carbonation, cloying sweetness, sticky texture. Taste: sweet honey and maltyiness that lingers. Overall, poor balance, honey is a bit too much for me, not something I enjoyed drinking.

This one is sweet to smell and sweet to taste. The honey really makes this beer an ok drink. Not really my style (lager) but drinkable.

Gostei bastante. Cor encorpada, um amarelo ouro bem intenso. Sem muitos aromas. Sabor refrescante, sem amargor e leve toque do mel.

"nothing wrong with the malty nose or flavor, or the subtle honey tones...it’s just not enough. still a macro lovers beer. too many better brews out there to go back to this one."

12 oz bottle poured into a hard plastic cup at my sister’s wedding. Clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of honey, malt, wheat. Tastes of honey, toffee, light bitterness, syrup. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-high carbonation. Slightly confusing name with "Honey Brown" being the prominent text on the label. Okay for what it is.

Smooth great taste not too sweet. Nice head, drinks best from beer glass with wide mouth. It has a strong taste, which I love.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Rather thin beer with some honey flavor, although not so much sweetness. Fizzy carbonation is unpleasant but generally refreshing.

Very smooth, very nice taste. No unpleasant alcohol taste, can really smell the honey and taste it as well. It is very hard to find in my area, so I tend to look for it. One of my absolute favorites

Pours a dark copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is not very pleasing...mostly grainy and metal. Taste is a ton of honey on the backend with a surprising sweetness. Pretty good beer, if you can get past the smell.
