Quite light... which meant I had to concentrate on the flavor profile. These ’light-tasting’ beers really give me a workout! Overall, I thought it was alright. Seemed well-balanced, with a subtle richness to it. Very easy to swallow; a good session beer. No major qualms to complain about; but no features to rave about either.

Decent Brown Ale. Reminiscent of Newcastle. Nothing too remarkable.

This is a well balanced and complex beer. A very attractive beer with a hardy and full flavor.

Billb’s got it. This was a 22 oz. airport beer on my layover to Ohio. I was shocked I couldn’t get Sweetwater IPA. The waiter didn’t know the brewer of this was in fact Sweetwater. I did get some stale off-flavors that tasted like they had more to do with the lines than the brew.

A fairly average beer. I’m not a big fan of honey browns but this is one of the better ones that I’ve had. It’s not overly sweet, in fact, it’s slightly sour and light on the carbonation. Small head and little to no head retention. A pretty malty flavor with little bitterness.
