Enjoyable smooth brown ale. Sweetness does not bother me, but may be too much for some. Looks like iced tea in the glass.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown, iced tea like color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, honey. Taste is bready, nutty, honey is present but not sweet. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a bit different, but an enjoyable beer.

this is better than its ratings, but maybe im partial or feel nostalgic or overly stoked because this is (im pretty darn sure) my first beer from the curious state of alabama! cool! a decent brown ale, sure maybe its a bit thin in grain character for the style, but the english ale yeast is nice and the honey works really well. its vibrant and sweet and floral in the nose, adds a richness to a light beer, and brings the abv up just enough. it looks nice, albeit a bit light, but it holds its tan head well, and the nose presents chocolate malt and a nuttiness that makes me think almond. the honey goes great with that, and its a cool mix of textures and flavors overall. carbonation is high and its almost refreshing with how light the body is. a clean finish with just a little of the english yeast character. well made, maybe boost up the dark grain a touch, but i could drink a ton of these.
