A - Nice clear amber brown color. The beer has a smaller head that dissapates fairly quickly but is very fine and clings nicely to the glass. Very inviting carbonation bubbles rise to the top. A little lighter than some brown ales but a nice looking beer.
S - Rich honey tastes rise from this beer. There is also some nice coffee? or chocolate smells coming from the beer. It has an earthy element and overall the smell is very good and not too strong or too weak. Smell complements the taste exceptionally.
T - Taste is really where this beer won me over. The honey addition makes a perfect complement to the brown ale flavors. It is brewed for Back Forty by Lazy Magnolia and has some influences of the Pecan Lazy Magnolia. If you get a chance try it.
MF - Medium bodied with light carbonation
D - Great beer, I get it when I can
This is an excellent beer from a very small brewery. The added honey makes a unique twist that is characteristic to the beer. It is hard to find, but if you see it you need to try it.

Bottled on date is December 11, 2013. Pours out to a quickly dissipating head and pale brown color. Aroma is very weak, there is some honey and nuts in there. Flavor is very subtle and laid back, reminds me of a homebrew with a bit of a twang and slight oxidation note of cardboard. Not bad but not good either. No real fresh malt or hops evident. Balanced bitter and sweet so another plus for being on style. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriately restrained. Overall a boring brown, drinkable but not exciting in the least. Think Southern Pecan without the pecans. Beats a Newcastle, though!

It pours out amber but there is no head to speak of and what is there disappears quickly. I got a sniff of citrus but not much else. The taste is nothing special but it does drink well on the palate - medium with an upfront fizz that is not too long. I couldn't taste the honey anywhere except maybe in the smell.
