3.42/5  rDev +10.3%

Appearance - Clear amber color, with no visible carbonation. 1 finger width foamy head that doesn't last long.

Smell - Slight sweet smell with a hint or roasted malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, not a lot of carbonation.

Taste - Light on taste, slightly sweet. Nothing else of real note.

Overall - Rating this beer was odd because it wasn't a bad beer it just wasn't a good beer. It was ok. Nothing really stands out.

Smell-Malts and a very slight hint of caramel and honey

Taste- malts and a hint of honey.

Mouthfeel- medium body no carbonation

Overall- kind of "meh" not big on flavor.

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.
