3.56/5 rDev +1.4%
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled on: 08/26/2013.
Appearance: Pours a light brown body, good clarity, with a small, short-lived, white head.
Smell: Toasted breadcrusts licked with light-colored caramel and honey with cooked fruit compote and faintest, merest hint of hops.
Taste: Sweetish taste of toasted malts, with a caramel bent, and, perhaps, some perceived honey. Lightly estery, with hints of golden raisin, apple. Very restrained hop profile with a low, low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It's definitely a light, easy-drinking brown ale. I'm down for that, but, anyone looking for high hopping or a thicker, heavier brown might do best to look elsewhere.

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!
