16 oz pub glass. Pours brown, quickly settling to a thin head, little lacing. Smells of weak honey and slight biscuits. Fair amount of malts were present as the beer warmed. Tastes was of biscuits, even less honey than the aroma put forth, but not bad. Smooth MF, little carbonation.. nice texture throughout. Overall a basic brown, with no major flaws, no major bells or whistles.

Truck Stop Honey has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, copper-brown appearance, with powdery sediment, throughout, and a bit of glass lacing. Aroma is faint, but some honey-topped, brown bread crust is detectable. Taste is of brown bread crust, honey, subdued bitterness, and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Truck Stop Honey finishes mostly crisp.

Had a pint on tap at an Embassy Suites.

It didn't have much head. Just kind of soapy bubbled. It was thinner bodied and a slightly transparent chestnut brown.

It is fairly sweet. Some honey and roasted malt give it a Honey Nut Cherrios like aroma, only darker grains. A hint of nuttiness.

I get a little bit of chocolate from the flavor, but mostly dark bread with honey.

Lighter bodied. Just a touch too watery.

A pretty decent brown ale. It reminds me of a little weaker version of Jackie O's Chomo

Poured into a tulip it has a brown slightly red mostly hazy body and a ring of white for a head. Smell of honey, biscuity malt, citrus, caramel, brown sugar, and a little bit of grass. Taste is sweet honey, caramel, lots of biscuit malt, and a bit of citrus. Mouth feel is full with a moderate to full body, carbonation is moderate. A overly sweet honey brown, not complex either, just very sweet honey and biscuit malt with nothing much to add depth.
