Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale pours from the bottle to a hue similar to that of tea, but with slightly more orange/golden accents. The body of this beer is perfectly clear and the foam level is moderate to low, falling apart rather quickly. The nose is one of honey, graham crackers, and lightly roasted malt and is quite nice.

Moving to the taste, Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale is a sweet beer up front and the taste of honey is apparent. But it gives way to other flavors like caramel, toasted malt, and toffee. I could taste some nuts as well, although it took some concentration to find them.

Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale is a decent representation of the English Brown Ale style, but consumers should know that it is not a robust brown ale. If that is what you want, then you should look elsewhere, for this beer is a little on the lighter side. However, it is not watery and has enough good qualities going for it to warrant a sample. It is much like other Back 40 beer products: Nothing amazing, but imminently drinkable and with enough good points to recommend.

Overall, a very nice Brown Ale. The honey taste is very slight, which I think is actually a good thing, or else the beer would probably be just too sweet. There's also a nice nuttiness, which I would expect for a Brown Ale. The mouth feel is a bit lighter than I expected and there's a slight bit of pleasant carbonation.
