Brewed with a combination of medium and dark-roasted malt, honey, and imported hops, Quidi Vidi Honey Brown is a full-bodied yet exceptionally smooth tasting beer. First introduced in the fall of 2002, Quidi Vidi Honey Brown caught on like wildfire! With the first brew selling out in record time, our Brew master decided to step up production and he's been brewing like crazy ever since. Demand for this brand continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, and positive consumer feedback keeps pouring in. The recurring comment is that consumers are most impressed by it's full-bodied yet exceptionally smooth taste. Quidi Vidi Honey Brown is brewed with a combination of chocolate malt, crystal malt, honey, and imported hops. A precise combination of malts achieves the full-bodied flavor associated with this brand, while the richness of the honey and gentle hopping augment the overall balance, resulting in an exceptionally smooth taste. Honey Brown Light is the newest addition to our fine selection of beers. A lighter variation of the very popular Honey Brown, it retains the smooth character of the original but with less calories and lower alcohol content. The imagery on the label shows the pride of our heritage in its simplest form, an iconic rendering of the island of Newfoundland. And the Honey Brown? Well it's a phenomenal beer, and we're proud to be brewing it at the most easterly tip of the continent, in North America's oldest city, and Canada's youngest province, Newfoundland and Labrador.

    I've never understood why there is such a fascination with honey in beer. If you want fermented honey - get a loose woman drunk! (bad joke) Anyway, this is a light amber coloured beer with a thin tan head. sweet malt, honey, and some floral hops make up the aroma. The flavour is very weak with a metallic sweetness I can do without.

    A friend of mine brought this back for me from Newfoundland. Pours clear, light copper with a big off white head. Decent retention and some sloppy lacing. Aroma is bland, slightly sweet, almost metallic, grainy. Flavour is weak malt with a strange sweetness. Thin mouthfeel is refreshing and goes down easy. Low carbonation.

    Clear copper body with zilch for head not even any bubbles floating to the top, this beer just scrams crap to look at it. Slight creamy hop aroma, some slight bitterness, and a touch of caramel, just boring smelling, smells like every other honey brown out there but not as good, WTF!!! On deep inhales I swear I smell cranberries. Taste is bready malts with some slight sweetness that’s about it. Not bad tasting, this was just a boring beer and there are way better examples of the style that are easy to get.

    More swill out of the 6 bottle variety pack that contains light versions of beers already in the pack LOL. Beer is a nice and clear amber / copper colour with light carbonation. Poured a good deal of head and has some early retention with average looking slippery lacing. A good dose of stinky malts and other crap that accidentially fell into the hole in the dirt that this was brewed in dominated the smell. Some really sweet honey fell in too, or maybe it was just a bunch of bees. Taste is alright though with decent malts and some solid bitter hops but overall QVHB is a bit sour and dull. Believe it or not, I thought this stuff was better warm when the malts came out and a bit more sweetness could be noticed. Medium bodied and ok swish.
