COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Honey Brown Ale has a chocolaty nose with a little fruit and some roast in the second half and finish. It has a vibrant, deep brown color with a foamy head. Local Wildflower Honey provides a little sweetness, but the addition is very subtle, far in the background. This beer is full of sweet malt flavors and has a decent amount of hops to round it out.

A sweet beer, but not overwhelmingly so. Honey, caramel, and brown sugar are evident. Light bodied, a bit bland. Decent head with a slick texture.

Bottle- Pours a clear mahogany color with a nice head that fades ery slowly with ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some nuts, chocolate and caramel sweetness. There is just a bit of honey sweetness in the background. Taste of roasted malt with some nuts and bit of dark chocolate and caramel sweetness. There is a mild bitterness and the finish is clean with just a bit of lingering honey sweetness. Medium body, crisp and well carbonated. Nice beer, much better than I expected. The honey adds a bit of character the the beer without overpowering the style. Worth checking out.

The beer pours a brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet, with a lot of dark fruit, honey and caramel malt notes. The flavor is also very sweet. I get some nice honey and cherry notes, as well as some toffee, caramel and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that diminishes quicky to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with rich malt and chocolate with sweet finish. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Twisted Pine.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. minimal lacing. Slighty toasty aroma with dark malt notes and subtle crisp hops. Hints of toast, toffee, nut and caramel but I’m not picking up any honey. Medium bodied and slightly roasted with some dark malts and faint sweetness. Hints of toast, caramel, cocoa, hazelnut and toffee along with subtle honey flavor. Toward the end of the palate there is a crisp hop bite that adds a touch of bitterness to the finish.

Tap @ brewery. Clear light brown, almost dark orange, very thin head. Has an aroma of wildflower honey and typical brown ale malts. Taste is nice with toasted chewy brown cereal malts, some honey, and faint chocolatyness. Not bad, just not great.

Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice honey and nut with some roasted malt in the backround. Flavor is more of a roasted malt with sweetness from the honey. Aftertaste leaves a odd plastic taste on the tounge. An ok beer.

(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clear brown with creamy tan head. Nose of honey, nuts, a bit of florals (hibiscus?), and caramel. Taste is nutty, chocolate, and has a creamy finish. A bit dry as well. Nice brown ale.
