0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2013 If I could give it less than .5, I would. This BROWN ALE was as pale as a Budweiser. When I asked the bartender about the color and he very defensively said, "When you mix 16 pounds of honey in you’re going to get a golden color." Uhhhh, ok. It didn’t have any characteristics of a brown ale and it didn’t even taste like honey. Just a big mess.
Taps clear cinnamon with a serviceable buff head. Aroma features sweet malt, honey, and subtle caramel notes. Flavor takes all that up a notch and tosses in a little bit of woody hops and a snip of honey. Mouthfeel offers average body but good fizz. Go nuts about honey!

On tap at brewery, poured a clear amber hue w/ medium fizzy fully diminishing head. Light sweet aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes like an extract. Thin watery body and mouthfeel. burg326 (5489) - Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Poured a dark brown color with aromas of grain, light task and some honey. Flavors are the same decent beer overall. kevinator (2268) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Surprisingly not bad and a decent thirst quencher. Faint aroma of honey, malts ahd nut. Copper color with a medium tan head. The palate was average and crisp with good carbonation. The flavors were grainy malt with honey on the finish. Apparently, they add 16 pounds of it in the boil. I couldn’t really detect the nuttiness as described. Overall a decent beer that went well with a burger. ilovedarkbeer (2742) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours a dark brown color that looks like coke. Weak watery bear with notes of peanut shells, caramelized brown sugar, and roasted almonds. Again, way too thin.
