A good everyday beer. The appearance is a little thin for a brown, but the smell and taste were both pretty good. Mostly earth and nut tones from the smell but most of what you get in the taste was a little bit of floral tastes from the hop and a little bit of sweetness from the malt. The mouthfeel was nice as well although it was thinner than I thought it was going to be. It's not complicated, doesn't have a real wow factor, but overall not bad.

3.18/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: 1" sudsy head that quickly recedes leaving moderate lacing. Golden/amber color and some carbonation streaming up.
Aroma: maybe just a slight hint of hops but the sweetness of the toasted malt and honey are what dominate
Mouthfeel: watery, crisp, refreshing. Very sessionable. Fairly dry finish.
Flavor: toasted bread with honey
Overall: I quite enjoyed this beer. It is the first time I have ever tried it. It is certainly not a ’world class’ beer but it is perfectly fine for what it is -- a clean, refreshing, and enjoyable brew.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: Clear amber color with a light cream head that recedes to a patch of film, no lacing.

Aroma: Very subtle honey sweetness, cereal grains.

Taste: Lightly toasted grains, honey sweetness, chocolate, malts.

Mouthfeel: Light in weight.

Overall: Just a bit too watered down, I was disappointed even without high hopes.

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!
