Notes/Commercial Description:
Smooth Sleeman Honey Brown Lager is brewed in the tradition of cottage breweries at the turn of the century. Some might think the tradition is outdated; we just think we got it right the first time.

Of the "Big 3' Sleeman beers, this is probably my favourite. It's still just slightly above average as a beer, but it has a lot of nice characteristics to it for a very efficient price.

It pours with an inordinate amount of head, maybe 4 fingers' worth. It is a great orange-brown colour and despite being served in a clear bottle, it doesn't have a lick of skunkiness to it.

It smells is a little nutty and smells of some dark malts, interestingly enough. Tastes much of the same - although the mouthfeel is very light, a bit more body would be nice.

it's an average beer, but this is a tasty one.

I can remember having this beer in Monteal New Years eve when I was 19. Overall I felt it was a pretty good beer but I think everyone here is missing a huge and hilarious characteristic of the beer...it smells exactly like weed. Like spot on, I really dont understand how no one else has commented about that.
