Probably the palest looking honey brown/amber/red ale I've tried yet. Hint of golden in it, otherwise it looks like a lager with about 3 drops of coffee added.

Faiint ctoasted caramel malts with a slightly metallic mustiness.

LOL It tastes like a mini me Sleemans. Same toasted malts, but fainter, same metallic twang, but fainter. Finishes slightly sweet and sticky.

Ah, put feel is slightly creamier than sleeman and carbonation not as brisk and biting.

An alright attempt, but no great shakes.

Pours a clear copper color with a white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma. Taste is quite sweet with malt flavors and a bit of honey. Low hop bitterness. Fairly thin body with good carbonation. A bit too sweet for me to session, but this is refreshing and drinkable.

Cold, cold day - and cold beer - ah, Canadian tradition...

This beer pours a clear medium golden hue, with two fingers of thinly creamy white head, which leaves some drooping fingers of lace around the glass as it takes its time settling. It smells of sweet bready, biscuity malt, and some mild floral honey. The taste is toasted bread malt, a bit of caramel, an echo of honey sweetness, and leafy, somewhat bitter hops. The carbonation is on the soft side of average, the body almost medium weight, and kind of fluffy. It finishes semi-sweet, with a rising weedy, ethereal booziness.

Nothing much brown or honeyed about this offering - a shade above Sleeman's ubiquitous analogue in quality - still not really worth seeking out beyond beer o'clock at the office...

341ml bottle poured into tulip aug3 2010

A clear gold with just a few bubbles floating up to a fast falling finger of head that left no lace

S honey, skunk and sweet grains

T not far from the smell but with a slight metallic taste

M a notch above watery and enough carbonation to keep it from feeling flat

D nothing special going on here, I finished it but wouldn't reach for another

wouldn't got looking for this one if I was you. I can't understand breweries that use clear bottles, why wouldn't you protect your product from things you know will destroy it?

Dead Frog Honey Brown is a tranluscent golden apricot with a fluffly white head that leaves memories of it as it's quaffed. Aromas of sweetness marred by fresh grains with suggestions of wildflowers tickle the nose. On the palate a light caramelized cereal grainness leading to a honey-like sweetness is found. A marginally sweet finish leaves looking for more, not of the beer, but from the beer.
