honey brown is one of the original beers of rochester, and unless you drink the genny stuff, this is really the original craft offering of the city. i still like it as much as i ever have. its distinct. a little pale in color to be considered a brown in my book, more copper, and very clear. the nose shows a little honey sweetness, but most of that is fermented out and leaving only the pollen honey flavor. lots of malt middle too, with more of an amber sweetness than a honey one. malty like an esb almost, less roast and chocolate malt than i usually expect from a brown, but there is a sight darker malt element which i guess can get it there for those not used to bigger darker richer browns. the fact that its lagered makes it awesome i think. drinks lighter, finishes quickly, and lets the flavors sort of come back one by one after the swallow. a very pleasant and drinkable brew, good craft to drink a lot of, and even right from the bottle feels appropriate. nice carbonation and not the least bit filling. the original and best from dundee.
