I was feeling nostalgic tonight so I grabbed a sixer of this and swapped out some singles for J.W. Dundees other new beers. (Yeah, Im one of those guys sometimes). I have to say this was my favorite beer in my underaged days. I havent had it in years probably so Im a little worried. The body of this beer is nowhere near brown, it is darker than your average macro swill though, sort of like a ruddy, dirty straw color. Some head appears on the pour but recedes to a tiny off white film on top. Smells better than Id expected actually I do catch a nice honey smell, accompanied by a subtler note of sweet malt, no cheap cloying aromas. The flavor is really light across the front of my palate, astringent and a little hollow. I soft sweet honey flavor does come through about halfway through and a tiny taste of a smooth round malt, the finish is a minimal earthy crust drizzled every so lightly with lemon juice. To be honest, I guess my tastes werent all retarded because I think this is a decent little beer, and the price-point cant be beat!

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!
