Begins sweet,fizzy and hoppy.Somewhat skunky (due to clear bottle?). Pleasant enough, but aren't there enough of these 'lagers' around? Nothing special. The name 'honey brown' markets well, I suppose. frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2003
I didnt expect too much from this, and my expectations were not exceeded. Not the worst thing you will come across, but not very good Ventrithor (5) - CANADA - MAY 4, 2003 does not count
The taste on tap is a whole different ballgame from in the bottle...on tap it's actually pretty refreshing, in the bottle it tastes skunky, but palatable for the price. JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Dark golden color with a cream colored thin lid of foam. Light dry honey, minimal malt and carrot aromas. Initial flavors of week tea followed by a light honey sweetness, mild malt and touch of corn. Better than the other Sleeman products I've tried, but thats not saying much. whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Seemed like it taste much better in Canada. Sort of a dirty flavor, with a nice dose of honey. Really nice color and appearance in general. It's tasty but nothing to write home about. As a sidenote, the guy in Canada told me this was a microbrew!! BS!!!!!!

Nice medium dark amber color,poured a light head that faded fast.aroma was lightly honey sweet,mildly hoped nice honey sweet flavor.nothing special but definately better then the michelob honey.i could get used to this one but i think the honey would get to me after 3 or 4 brews.Over all pretty decent brew. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2003
Has a slightly darker golden/brown color with a sweet smell. Taste is also sweet from the honey, but not too sweet and finishes like your average lager. Overall not too bad and cane be refreshing on a hot day. MicroRob (42) - Kelowna, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 I've tried this in a few restaurants from the bottle that was old and boy was it skunky. When fresh it is an average Lager with sweeter note. Mass marketed for the folks who don't know a lot about good micros but like to be on the band wagon. Duffbeer (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2003
This beer was a lot better than I had anticpated based on other Sleeman Samplings. A little too much honey taste though. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2003
Clear golden/orange colour. Thin head. Nose of honey (of course)and hops. Falvour is of honey which makes the beer quite sweet and toasted grain. Finish is slightly bitter but overly fizzy still. I have had many of these in my days and enjoyed the different flavour, that is until I started trying porters, stouts and bocks.
