look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

One of the decent Bear Brew beers that they make. Just goes under the plain name of "Brown" at the pub, got rid of the Honey Bear part, and as far as I can tell, there isn't any honey in this brown ale either. Can usually find this beer at the Brew more often than not.

Appearance is hard to make considering I have a mug there and it's ceramic, but the top has a decent frothy looking head, underneath when it finally fades away is a dark brown color.

A decent brown ale offering with plenty of malt. Carbonation is just slightly high for a brown ale but doesn't ruin the beer. One thing that's a bit weird is that it tastes like the malt was overcooked, definitely a burnt taste going on, not quite roasted either, does leave a weird feeling in the aftertaste.
