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.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. minimal lacing. Slighty toasty aroma with dark malt notes and subtle crisp hops. Hints of toast, toffee, nut and caramel but I’m not picking up any honey. Medium bodied and slightly roasted with some dark malts and faint sweetness. Hints of toast, caramel, cocoa, hazelnut and toffee along with subtle honey flavor. Toward the end of the palate there is a crisp hop bite that adds a touch of bitterness to the finish.

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.

Had this beer on 3/30/1999. Color is a deep brown with low carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a nice sweet roasted malt scent. Taste is rich and sweet. It starts with a medium body that goes down heavy with a bit of bite. The finish is a sweet malt flavor with a rich alcohol taste to it and a light bitterness.

ansermadide (1511) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bubbly, frothy cream-colored head, muddy brown/ruby colored body. Malty brown, slightly roasted and almost floral honey aroma. Light standard brown ale flavor, a little trace of hops with a syrupy astringency. Almost tastes like wood. Drinkable, but if there’s something else on the menu, drink that.

thegreenrooster (3165) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice honey and nut with some roasted malt in the backround. Flavor is more of a roasted malt with sweetness from the honey. Aftertaste leaves a odd plastic taste on the tounge. An ok beer.
