It’s a late Sunday evening (8:50 is late when you have a 4 month old) and we just got home from my dad’s 85th birthday party.
Now that the little guy is finally asleep we can crack open a Bowen island honey brown.
The colour is rich and deep, and the head is good, leaving a delightful ring with each sip.
The aroma is subtle and bitter, and just a little sugary.
The taste is really smooth and well balanced. The taste is very subtle and mild, meaning the wife can drink a few as well. The honey taste is a little more apparent than with other honey brews, which is nice, but becomes more noticeable the more you drink.
A trend among honey lagers and honey browns is that they are very smooth and drinkable.
I don’t really rate a beer based on it’s price, but it is noteworthy that this 12 pack was only $17.00 at the signature liquor store… One of the cheapest you can get. So if you are budget conscious, the Bowen island beers are an excellent choice.
