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.

Awards: Gold Medal Colorado State Fair 98’ & 00’, Bronze Medal GABF 00’

Aroma: A crisp aroma of mild roasted malts with some grains. As the beer warms up, the honey notes begin to pop. Appearance: Pours deep brown with an off white head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving traces of head on the glass. Flavor: Initially I tasted the bitterness from the hops, then the sweets malts following up with dried fruits. The flavors are well balanced with hints of roasted grains and chocolate. As the beer leaves my glass, the bitterness fades away. Mouth feel: It has a light body, with mild carbonation. Overall Impression: It is easy to drink. As with their Cream Stout, if you enjoy drinking beers with subtle flavors, this beer is for you. I am seeing a trend from Twisted Pine; their beers are well executed and brewed to style. I understand why this beer received medals at both the GABF and Colorado State Fair. Their beers showcase their brewers’ talent and make me wish I could purchase some of their bigger or extreme beers.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2010
12oz bottle. Deep burgundy-brown, soapy, oily head, off white. Deep malty aroma. Honey brown is forbidden territory, thanks to Dundee, but this beer snatches the style right back. Quite excellent, the honey complements the dark malt tones perfectly. Medium to full bodied, displays an extra clean mouthfeel. Really exceeded my expectations, extremely well executed.

I just dont get the bad ratings. I mean, its a brown ale - what are you expecting? The Abyss? Overall a nice chocolatey brown ale with sweet honey notes. Nice slightly bitter finish.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours brownish amber with a beige head. Sweet and toasted malts, light earthy hops, a hint of chocolate, and a relatively clean finish. Fresh and drinkable. Good stuff.

drpimento (2151) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2005
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!

Braudog (5574) - 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.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2011
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.

Bif (1379) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2012
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.

Clear brown pour with some reddish edges and a frothy, tan head. The aroma has honey with some chocolate. It has a medium body with a soft texture and average carbonation. The sweetness of the taste lingers in the finish for quite a while.

Bottle. Pours a slightly reddish brown color with a small head. Nose is rather nutty and slightly toasty. Taste is much the same, though the toasting comes through a lot more. Not bad.
