2.3/5 rDev -26%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - Totally clear orange amber with a thin, quickly-disappearing head with little dots of wet, loose lacing.
Smell - Thin and weak, save for a scant malt sweetness.
Taste - light malt sweetness and light honey, with a ricey, macro lager aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation with a light body. Smooth going down, so there's something going for it.
Overall - A pretty measly attempt to seem like a craft beer, when it's nothing but an unimpressive, not-very-pleasant macro lager with sweetener in it.

Honey Brown Original Lager .99 Cents a 24 oz can(OH)
24 oz can poured into a stemless white wine glass, for .99 cents. don't mind if i do. no freshness date just a can code on the bottom.
pours a nice clear amber color. amberish brown. a two finger white head, not dense but not thin either. gives way to nice lacing.
the smell is rather sweet. the malts are hidden pretty well. smells like grainy honey. not too much else here, which isnt bad. I like Honey!
the taste rather follows the nose, not very malty at all, well balanced with the honey. the taste is rather subtle at first. but the more you drink it becomes rather rich. i can session this. but a few of my friends cant. Honey being a dominate taste here.
mouth feel is decent. carbonation feels great, a dry-ness i expected followed by a nice sweet honey feel. It kind of makes the mouth feel dry, but that's not bad. Like noble hops do. This does NOT have noble hops but it kind of feels like it. Again honey being the dominate taste.
overall this brew is great by my accounts. .99 Cents a 24 oz. A honey dominate brew. but well balanced. malts are well hidden. i would buy this again. Price is right, and so is the taste if you like honey. you can pick up a 12 pack of 24 Oz's for just over $12. that's 24 beers for a shade over 12 bucks. deal!
