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.

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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Clear chestnut brown with a quickly dissipating brown topper. Aroma of honey, grains and malt with some toffee and nuts lurking in the background. Taste of bitter chocolate, over-roasted malt, nuts, artificial sweetener and a heavy yeast concentration. A bit too cloying and sudsy for my liking.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
12oz bottle pours dark brown with amber edges and thin tan head. It left a pretty decent sediment layer on the bottom of the bottle for a fairly fresh Brown Ale. The mild aroma offers up whiffs of roasted malts, a touch of yeast, nuttiness and a bit of earthy maltiness. The taste is pretty creamy with a mix of roasted malts, sweet nuttiness and a thin layer of earthiness. At times a bit of dark roasted malts is noticed too. Decent enough brown.

Palidor19 (2917) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2011
it does a lot of things right with a nice balance of malts and spicy hops for substance. palate feels lively but it is a bit astringent at the end

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
The aroma is inviting with toffee, honey, and a touch of chocolate. The appearance is medium brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a nasty chemical bitterness in the finish. The palate is average. Overall a little disappointing.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, honey, a little floral, and caramel. Taste is lots of caramel, more sweetness, a little hops, and a little honey.

Cavie (3745) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Whip-In. Pours a dark brownish red color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of roasted malts, some nuts and decent malts. Not a bad smell. Flavor is roasted malts big time with a slightly ashy finish. There is lots of nutty flavors and dark caramel malts. The burnt flavor fills in on the finish and lasts for awhile. Wish the finish was better.
