3.74/5  rDev +20.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured bottle into glass. 4.5% abv

Appearance- A copper orange with a good foamy head that fades fast. Quite clear.

Smell- Sweet corn malt aromas typical of a lager. Notes of caramel and honey as well.

Taste- The malt has the sweetness much more of caramel than the smell may suggest. Little complexity at all but does finish with a sweet honey taste on the back end which compliments the malt quite nicely. Zero hop prescence in this one but that is fine as it's a lager.

Mouthfeel- Thin-medium in body generally, but medium-high compared to the lager category. The liveliness in carbonation helps the feel. Not watery whatsoever, just right for the style.

Overall- A lager I was pleased with. I would buy these for those warm Summer days. Very easy drinking and has a pleasant sweet taste about it which makes it quite agreeable. I'm not a lager guy but this beer is now one of my favorite lagers. Refreshing.

This beer is refreshing and balanced. Honey brown has a sweet malt flavor with seemingly no hops to taste. You get a sweet malt flavor at the front of the tongue with a pleasant mild honey aftertaste. The two different sweet characteristics makes you want to take another sip. The beer is easy to drink and an excellent choice on a hot summer day or night. Since there is no bitterness to this beer, it is an excellent recommendation to friends who are used to drinking typical American lagers.
