Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a brown color with a bar pour’s kind of slim head.
The smell had a light sweet honey and then a roasty and woody spicy aroma (mesquite perhaps).
The taste took the honey and the woody spiciness and let in a light toasted grain and caramel.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality to it. On the tongue, it came across with a light tingle of spice but still letting the honey come in as well.
Overall, pretty good brown ale that had a little more going on than other brown ales I’ve had. I’d have this again. hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 20, 2012
tap at pap 4/5/12.
clear brown but tinted amberish. ow head.
sweet aroma and flavor...honey(but i’m fairly certain everything they do has a honey house character), toasted grain and caramel.
the sweetness gives it a touch of body but i’d rather it be thin than sweet...6/3/6/3/14

Pours a clear, almost burnt caramel color with tan head. Aroma has caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet malt with a good bit of roast. Not getting much honey here. Medium bodied and a dry finish. Not bad and not as sweet as I expected. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Brown pour. Honey, toffee, wheat bread. Sweet honey flavor, toffee, dates. Nice. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2011
on tap at the brewpub pours brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is floral with honeysuckle and light roast. Flavor is light roast, nutty malts with a finish that equal parts peppery and sweet. Honey lingers in the finish and makes the beer feel very light and refreshing.

Thick white head. Some hop aroma. Copper coloured fruity and hoppy with a crisp malt finish. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Tap @ Brewery. Dark body with off white head. Had a decent malt and honey aroma. Some other honey beers I’ve tried were like stale honey aroma’s. Decent sweet malty honey stickyness to the flavor. Carbination gave me a cola soda flavor and where this came from I don’t know but a somewhat metalic finish. A decent considering I haven’t found a honey brew to my liking yet. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2006
On tap at TCB - Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. Has a light honey and toasted malt aroma. Has a sweet honey/caramel malt flavor. Medium body. Easy to drink. Better than I thought it would be. Wortha try. FlacoAlto (4197) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 22, 2006

This beer is brought to me fresh from the tap with a frothy, lightly browned, tan colored head that starts out about a quarter-finger in thickness. The beer is a dark, opaque brown color that shows brilliantly clear, dark, amber brown notes around the edges. The aroma has a lightly sweet, caramelized malt notes to it, which is followed by a toasted malty note.
The taste is fairly sweet with notes of caramel, toffee and a honey-like sweetness that melds deeply with the sweet, dark malt notes. A nice level of carbonation adds a bit of a bite and along with a light hop bitterness, helps to balance some of the sweetness. This has a really nice toffee like character to it and at times it even takes on flavors reminiscent of a cola (perhaps that mix of honey and dark malt is what creates this).
This is nice and easy drinking, the sweetness does give it a touch of a sticky mouth-coating quality, but it helps to make the honey quality noticeable (if this was dry, the honey character would be lost, as it is, it is still subtle). I want to not like this for some reason, ultimately I do though and would even try this again.
Dark brown color. Roasted malts. Full bodied, with a milder flavor. Nice malt flavor, some hoppyness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is malty, slightly sweet.
