We found this here in Iowa! Of all the places. Any state that can not offer J. D. Dundee’s Honey Brown should probably be thought of as “lacking” in beer selections. But Somehow, this beer, that we could not find in the very location of its creation, is offered here in a store next to our favorite bagel place. There were 4 other selections, but we chose one that had the ‘hops” we desire.
The Taste: Not bad at all. And really not what was expected. Darker beers usually have a chocolate or caramel flavor. This one had the right combination of hops to offset the “candy” flavor…but not too much to overwhelm it with citrus notes.
We enjoyed it with Chocolate covered strawberries. A nice combination. There are some beers you should eat with fried foods, others with cheese and crackers or Brie cheese. This one went well with the sweets from the chocolate and fruit. It IS a little pricy, ( most “good” beers are) but it is a nice experience and fun to try. I can’t wait to try the other selections.
