Honey Brown is the first beer I really liked. Now I don't really care for it, but I have to give it credit in that it got me to give beer a chance.

Yeah, Honey Brown was one of my "gateway" beers.

That's funny. I had the exact thing happen last night when I had a Honey Brown. I cracked open and the first thing that came to mind was hugging a toilet. Not saying the Honey Brown was utterly revolting or anything, but I must have over-imbibed on the stuff once or twice in the past.

As long as I *start* with the Honey Brown, I'm A-OK Fine all night long! But if I'm already 6, 8, 10 beers in, then I try to sip down a Honey Brown, I feel like saying some prayers to the porcelain altar.

Before they changed the packaging and name they used to put an amber in that was pretty decent. Are they still twist off's? I haven't had one in some time. The price was always the reason for picking them up. Can't beat 9 bucks for a 12 pack.

I used to drink MGD until I was at a Hooters once with a bunch of people and I got turned onto Honey Brown. Drank it whenever I could for a few years. This was like 10 years ago. I haven't had any recently though. Now my beer of choice seems to be Mich Ultra. I like Fosters and then Molson XXX when I can find it, but most corner bars don't carry it.

BACK from the dead!
I've never had Dundee's before but I went home for thanksgiving and bought a sampler pack of this just to try new stuff. over all it's just "eh". someone said each beer tasted like it came from the same basic recipe and was just slightly tweaked for each style. . . I was talking to my brother and said pretty much the same thing. overall they're drinkable and I wouldn't turn one down but I also wouldn't buy them again unless they're were on some sort of super sale.

I like the pale ale and the pale bock. They used to sell sixers of the pale ale by itself and I'd usually buy that. The pale bock out of the sample pack isn't bad and is a fairly clean tasting beer to mix in with the others.

I was given a sixer of the honey brown the other day (WOO free beer) and I find myself a little put off by the sweetness of it. It doesn't taste "bad" but, I feel like if I finished six of these in a day I would get diabetes.

I am not gonna dump them (read: cheap ass) but I may have to sneak them in after a few IIPAs so I don't taste them as much.

EDIT: this stuff is also WAY too clear It turned my beer glass into a rather large magnifying lens, so I ended up staring at my fingerprints on the back of the glass.

High falls brewery (local to Rochester) was just sold. So Genesee / High Falls / whatever the new name will be, may start to taste different in a year or so if the new owners change things up.
