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. (1,019 characters)

This light-bodied, sweet brown ale is easy to drink in one session. Its color is a thin brown, close to amber. The smell is non-obtrusive, but not revealing either. The taste is light, and sweet with a bit of nuttiness. Brewed with local wildflower honey, so it's good for my allergies. :) I'm glad to see another style from Back 40, as the pale ale is such a tough category to start in. I have enjoyed this 6-pack enough to have finished it in two days! Congrats to Back 40! (475 characters)
