67. Guinness Black Lager

Not a lot going on with this beer good or bad. My 2.5 star rating is generous but the color, head that lasts and slight lacing on the glass make it a good beer to look at. The taste is nothing special but it is easy to drink and with a low alcohol content you can certainly have more than one. If you want to impress your friends that are drinking the Miller, Bud or Coors Lite by drinking lots of dark beer this would be a good choice for you. If you enjoy truly good beer try something else.
Pros: Color, Easy to drink
Cons: Simple
Alcohol Content: 4.5% ABV
Calories: ???
IBU (Bitterness): ??
Rating: ★★½☆☆
Brewers Website: Guinness
Brewers Description: Introducing a true original. New Guinness Black Lager is cold-brewed with roasted barley for a refreshing lager taste like no other. Your first sip will surprise you.

19. Honey Brown Lager

Honey Brown was my beer of choice through college and looking back it is too bad I didn’t get into craft beer back then as that was 4 years of drinking low quality beer. This beer is only slightly better than the Budweiser, Michelob and other mega brewers. The only reason this one made it to my blog is my wife picked up a six pack last week and there were still a couple in the fridge. I did not realize until writing this post that the same company owns Magic Hat and Honey Brown. With all of the beer choices out there this should not make it to the top of your list.
Pros:
Cons: Little to no flavor
Alcohol Content: 4.5%
Calories: 150
IBU (Bitterness): 10
Rating: ★½☆☆☆
Brewers Website: Honey Brown
Brewers Description: Man first brewed with honey more than 2,000 years ago. Back then, fermented honey was proclaimed the drink of kings. We first brewed Original Honey Brown Lager nearly 20 years ago. And we like to think every batch is still fit for a king. In the years since, Honey Brown has been brewed with the same premium barley, hops and pure Manitoba White Clover Honey to produce a great-tasting, medium-bodied lager.
This isn’t your watered-down light beer from college. Nor is it a heavy craft beer. Honey Brown pours right smack dab in the middle. A delicious golden amber color, it’s a beer you can drink throughout the night while staying true to yourself and your evolving palate. Enjoy it with friends. Enjoy it with strangers. It doesn’t matter to us—just enjoy it.
