12 oz bottle pours a clear copper color with a nice cap of tan head that shows good retention and lacing.
Nose is downright delightful! The honey is superbly integrated with graham cracker maltiness. Very nice.
Taste is more of the same with this beer, tastes more like a graham cracker than probably any other beer I have had. Honey is not as apparent on the flavor and finishes drier than expected with a little bit of toast and a decent amount of hops. I am digging this beer. Mouthfeel is thinner than I would like to see as well and the malt depth could use a boost. But overall I think this is a fine brown ale that I will definitely seek out again next time I am in Alabama. I am a sucker for a good English Brown Ale...though this one could fit just as well as an American Brown me thinks. Both Back Forty offerings I have had have been impressive - keep up the good work!

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.

Serving type: On-tap
Appearance: That of your standard brown ale, not a lot of head on it and has a medium brown color.
Smell: Sweet but no distinguishable aroma.
Taste: Exactly what you expect from a brown ale. A malty, not hoppy, sweet flavor.
Mouthfeel: That great taste that's almost like a better, cleaner New Castle sticks with you for a little while extra making you want another sip after it fades.
Overall: This is an above average beer. The head on it isn't so great and the smell, I wish was stronger but it tastes great and has a really good presence about it.
Serving type: on-tap
