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.

(Bottle) Pours a brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of light caramel. Taste is pretty similar, with some toffee. Sweet, but thin bodied. Not particularly well balanced either, but I would drink it again.

Clear brownish copper. Not much going on in the nose - some caramel. Palate is very light, mild carbonation. Not much flavor - very light caramel.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Pours a plain-jane brown. Aroma is astringent and off, but there’s some light caramel and wood behind the weirdness. Tastes....brown? Mildly hoppy in the finish, but very little about this beer left much of an impression at all. Drinkable.

bottle. brown pour that is easily seen through with a coal hued white head that remains as a skin throughout. tree bark and honey nose with a bit of walnut. taste is well, unremarkable, thin mouthfeel, light oaky cashew flavor with a freshly cleaned glass flavor. if you’ve ever licked a clean razor blade you already know what this tastes like.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2006
A lighter styled brown ale, with a bit of a nutty caramel nose. Bittersweet honey in the background of the malt profile, with a bit of a black tea flavor going on as well. Just enough roastiness, not bad, but not great.

Braudog (5496) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2006
4 oz sampler at the brewpub, 4/15/06: Silky. Dark. Sticky. Sweet, but not over the top for a "honey" beer. Gotta give it to ’em ... good.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Slightly rocky tan head on a dark brown body. Aroma is of rich, dark malts, with a little hops sneaking through. It had a pleasant roasty maly flavor with just barely enough hops to balance. An ok beer, but nothing that WOWed me.
