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.

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.

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.

not a bad beer, drinkable, even perhaps repeatable - but on the light side. Pours with head that mostly disappears, has a distinct carbonated mouth to it, more than you’d expect from this style. Nice brownish color. Decent brown ale flavor. A bit of fruit though, which I’m not too big a fan of in a brown. Got this from a friend who had been out in the area. Thanks Paul!

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Bottle. A lighter brown color with minimal head. Not a very thick, brown ale and the flavors were less than intense. A very light brown ale in both taste and viscosity. Maybe that’s why I didn’t mind it all that much.

BeerandBlues2 (9588) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Tap. Pours a clear milk chocolate in color with a tan creamy head. Chocolate and caramel malt aroma with a hop nose. Honey and sweet caramel malt flavor with chocolate mixed throughout. Light to medium bodied creamy palate.

What exactly is a twisted pine. I think I'd rather not know. Weak, not overly impressive, but not as bad as some i've had. Its not that its bad, but every aspect of it seemed no more than average. With the word pine, I expected a pinsol/gin aftertaste.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 Vibrant, deep red color with a foamy head; left behind nice lace patterns. Carbonation is a little high, making the tasty malts seem thinner than they are. Honey probably contributes a little sweetness, and maybe some alcohol. I like how the honey addition is very subtle though, far in the background. Decent amount of hops round it out. Sweet malt flavors.

On tap GABF ’02: Brown color with a good head. Watery palate, not enough malts, not even close.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2005 Head is initially small, fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, roasted grain, nuts), trace hops (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very light and watery, simple.
