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.

Pours a very dark brown with off-white head. The honey note is the dominant characteristic from aroma to finish, but the sweetness is muted, to it’s credit. Some roasted flavors play into it as well with a bit of hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Dark mohangeny pour with mocha head. Taste is slightly nutty with a fairly uneventful malt base. Bits of metal but rather bland and not really sweet at all.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours a clear medium to dark brown with a thin, soapy beige khaki head. Aroma is pretty faint, light chocolate, floral honey and fruity notes. Flavor is also pretty light, chocolate, light nutty notes, a little honey, ripe tree fruit, crusty bread, toast, light caramel and planty, herbal and fruity hops. Medium body with a somewhat syrupy entry, light to medium, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dryish finish. Not bad overall. Seems a little weak for 6.3%, but not that surprising for a Brown.

Bottle pour. Dark amber color with a light head. Very mild aroma. Taste of malt, with very light notes of honey. Overall a very mild beer, pretty boring.
