Not very hoppy at all. Introduction is light and energetic, though not much linger. The finish is somewhat stronger where smokey notes play mid-tongue. The honey is downplayed which is good, I was expecting the sweetness to overpower the palette. The stark bubble works well with the light, almost crispness.

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.
