Second beer to taste at beer o’clock today was JW Dundee’s Original Honey Brown. I am a sucker for trying honey lagers and picked this up at QFC in Sammamish a week or two ago. Sad to say this didn’t go much for me, but at least it was a decent beer. Just not what I was expecting based on the title.
JW Dundee’s is a brewery in New York that only makes 4 beers and this was their first… not bad, as noted, but just nothing really to write about. Pretty standard brown… no real note of honey, 4.5% ABV. No tipping either way toward malt or hops. Just a real middle of the road kind of experience. So far, honey beer on the site follows about this from a stack rank perspective:
Still looking for that ultimate honey beer/lager, though…
9/14/08 UPDATE: Through further reading… discovered that this is actually a brand that falls under the Highfalls Brewing Company umbrella. I am sure others in the area new this, but from 3000 miles away it just wasn’t clear right away. 🙂
