The Clue is in the Name
We use real honey from friendly local bees (Three Hills) to help sweeten our Honey Brown lager, while the Brown comes from something just as natural and local, our world-renowned Alberta prairie malt.

Little Known Fact
Environmentalists are concerned that worldwide bee populations are in decline. Such is their importance to our ecosystem, it is believed their absence will result in mankind’s extinction. (At which point you might not care that Honey Brown isn’t as sweet.)

Metalchopz (3474) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
Had at Last Chance Saloon in Wayne, Alberta. Pours an amber colour, with a small head that disappears quickly and no lacing. Butterscotch aromas with some mild sour infection smell. Sugar flavours with a bit of hops in the finish. Not bad overall, but infection is not cool, and a little too sweet.

Clear amber coloured beer with beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste simular as aroma.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
Not a big fan of honey browns. Thin, watery profile with some sweetness and nuttiness.

Orange brown body with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet but otherwise plain . Taste is sweet with hints of caramel, but watery overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very minimal head, even when slightly warm, and a caramel copper body kinda like carbonated iced tea. Flavour is a hint of caramel and iced tea.... oh, now that iced tea’s entered my brain I can’t stop thinking about iced tea! Flavour is vague hints of hazelnut with a cloying sweetness.... oh, that’s the honey. But, it kinda grows on you after awhile to be tolerable so an extra flavour point for that. Still, I’d wager that many will have a trying-to-suck-it-down reaction to this, so sadly its score shall reflect such bodily reflexes.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, copper with a thin, short lived, off-white head. Light caramel malt aroma with some grain. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and a hint of honey. Light body with a thin, watery texture and flat carbonation. Not bad, but pretty boring.

RhetoricalAns (939) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Light brown pour, little head. Very fain caramel aroma. Taste has a bit of sweetness to it but nothing else noteworthy. Watery throughout.

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Couleur de cuivre avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt avec un peu du miel au début (quand il a un col!) mais juste du malt après le col est rétréci. En bouche il y a du malt mais c’est pas vraiment sucré et il y a du miel seulement si j’utilise vraiment mon imagination! C’est aqueux, mais le malt est assez bien équilibré avec une finale d’houblon. C’est surtout pas offensive, mais j’en est eu assez après quelques gorgés.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Orange-brown body with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with a bit of dark honey, a suggestion of red berries, and quick twiggy hops. Flavour is similar, with the sweetness up front leaning more towards honey than caramel, a bit of wet graininess in the middle, and a moderately dry a mildly fruity finish. A decent example of a generally uninspired style.

AgentAle (1806) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Aroma: Sweet malt aroma with notes of honey Taste: swift bitter taste that smooths out and poured with a sweet maltiness. Finishes somewhat flat Appearance: clear light brown body with medium retained head
