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.

Sampled on 10/8/2012. This brown ale pours a medium brown color from a 12ooz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and fruity with some honey. A medium to light bodied brown ale. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Some honey and a touch of chocolate. There is some estery sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly sweet, with some honey.

Pours a clean and sharp burnt copper with a thin tan head. Nose is nondescript, light honey-ish quality and some toasted grain. A light sweetness shows in the flavor with some muddled malt flavors and slight nutty character. Medium light body with a hazelnut skin skin bitterness.

fidelis83 (1901) - 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.

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.

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear dark brown with a thin head. It really smells like honey. The taste is similar. There’s a lot of honey in this one along with the caramel malt flavors. It’s bubbly on the palate and very sweet. It’s not bad though maybe it could be balanced better.

Bottle at a friends BBQ - meh, I’m not a fan of brown ales, and the honey in here isn’t really helping the cause - I guess the earthiness of the honey is there, but it doesn’t really work with the chocolate and roasted nut character of your typical brown ale - a bit of maple syrup - a bit too sweet, and lacking depth.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a beige head over a clear brown (SRM 20) body......nose is rich in coffee and chocolate......taste is coffee, chocolate, bit of hazelnut, slightly sweet throughout, until a light bitter finish....mouth feel is light borderline watery, carbonation medium. The aroma was the strong point of this beer.

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.
