4.08/5  rDev +23.6%

On tap at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore, MD. Pint glass. My first time seeing this beer, had to get it. Suprisingly enough we don't get nearly enough love from Evolution Brewing up here in Baltimore, only the standard bottles and a few drafts can be found. Was excited to try this one.

A - Dark gold, thin white head, steady crab stream, not much lacing

S - Mildly sweet, somewhat sour, hint of bitterness

T - Huge complex floral flavors up front with a creamy and almost savory middle. Light fruity notes arrive as it opens up. Very clean mildly tart finish with little to not much of an aftertaste.

M - Medium-light bodied, moderate carb presence.

O - The perfect Spring session beer. Very clean and bold flavors that aren't heavy on the palate with a manageable alcohol content. I'd definitely order again. Maybe for a Spring camping trip?

3.81/5  rDev +15.5%

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- A clear golden amber color with a small white head.

S- Kind of light, chamomile, some honey, caramel malts, floral.

T- Getting the hibiscus, chamomile and honey and they are work together very well, nice malt backbone, really floral/herbal.

M- Light to medium body, lots of carbonation.

O- A tasty spring session beer and being under $10 a 6-pack it is worth trying. If I saw this on-tap at a bar I would, but with six-packs I feel that I will pick up a six when the weather is warm and probably open one or two when grilling or relaxing out side.

Nice pale amber color. no head to speak of.

Nose is quite bright and citrusy. Lots of lemon, orange, melon, honey, and hibiscus

Taste is a little odd. Quick little snatch of citrus up front, largely with lemon. Fades quickly into a really acrid and dry malt. Very earthy and straw like.

Feel is pretty medium thin.

Sort of meh. Some interesting hints of flavor, but drowned out by the oppressive malts. Just not really well balanced at all.

On tap at Hudson St. Stackhouse.

The beer pours a golden amber color with farily decent head retention and light lacing. The beer smells pretty nice, as I get something of cherry orange aroma, coupled with some brown sugar and honey. The honey and brown sugar seemed to dominate in this lightly sweet beer, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light, and what flavor there is, drops off pretty quickly on the finish.

Mehhh... it is what it is I guess, but I'll go with a good German pilsner if I want something sessionable/low in alcohol. This would probably make a fairly decent transition beer for someone looking to upgrade from their usual macro swill, but otherwise... pretty sure I don't need to order this one again.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, fresh, bottled last month.

A- Poured a dark golden-amber color with a slim white head that faded fast. No lacing. Lots of carbonation, small bubbles. As blonde ales go, this one's rather dark in color.

S- To begin with, there's a slight lager enzyme (aka skunkiness) aroma that last but a moment, clearing quickly. Once the beer breathes- light floral and spice and a dose of honey. Some light malts. Pleasant.

T- Honey and some spiciness, a touch of malt. Some tea flavor on the back end.

M- Very smooth and drinkable, well carbonated for some tickle. A bit bolder than I would have thought.

O-Not a bad light-side brew, but it could be more of a 'beer' as I've come to know them.

Had on tap at Fin's in Rehoboth Beach, DE as part of the Evolution Beer Dinner.

A: Clear golden body with a small white head that starts off very small (maybe 1/4 inch), but lasted for most of the time I was drinking. Left some spotty lacing.

S: Grainy malts, a little flowery sweetness, and some nutty caramel malt.

T: Sweetness really starts to develop as the beer warms slightly, likely from the honey used. There is a floral flavor from the hibiscus leaves, but not extremely strong, especially compared to hibiscus juice.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Definitely a good beer for hanging out on a nice spring/early summer day as the name implies. Not overly complex, but pretty good and easy drinking.
