On tap at Rustico - Alexandria. Served in a pilsner glass.

Very clear golden color. Short head and no retention. Nose has very light grain. Pretty boring. Flavor has the lightest of grain. Very very light hops. Really not much going on. No hop or yeast character, and nothing from the malt either. Just a really boring beer, even considering the style. Feel is quite light with medium carbonation. I didnt want to finish the glass after a few sips.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

"brewed with honey, hibiscus and chamomile"

Medium amber pour with a thin white head that completely disappeared after a minute or two, leaving no lacing behind. Aroma of sweet malts, floral, herbal. Taste was about spot on for the description given, but still a bit weak and generic overall; honeysuckle, caramel malts, citrus oil, chamomile, a bit of rosemary-like herbal spice. Flavor fades fast leaving a bland, golden-ale aftertaste. Light-medium body, low carbonation, easily drinkable as far as mouthfeel goes, but not really something I'd go for again.

The beer is dark golden / orange and pretty clear with a small, off-white collar. The aroma is sweet, with ripe fruits and sweet breads. Grainy and too sweet. Out of balance. The finish should be drier. Cloying and a chore to drink. When I think of a good blonde ale under five percent abv, I think thirst quenching, refreshing, easy drinking beer. This beer misses the mark.

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.

Poured on tap into a shaker pint glass at FireWorks pizza.

A real kind of nice golend orange/amber body. Unfortunately there is not head on this beer it seems, or at least it didn't stick around. It didn't even manage to keep a collar while drinking.

On the nose here I smell some faint malt but really nothing. Not much going on here, kind of dissapointing.

First reflection on taste is that the beer seems real thin and wet. Luckily though there is a hint of some small bread on the finish and mild hop presence.

Overall there is just not a lot going on here for this beer, I couldn't get into it or find anything worth really mentioning.

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.
