Notes/Commercial Description:
When the days get longer and the air gets warmer, we get outside quite a bit. And we build a big thirst. Summer Honey helps us shake off the winter and slakes our thirst for a refreshing brew. Summer Honey is a full-flavored summer seasonal ale. Brewed with a unique, balanced blend of spices, Northwest Hops, and Montana honey. Summer Honey is brewed during the early days of spring and released around the first of May each year. Light colored, light bodied, and very drinkable, Summer Honey sacrifices nothing to create a flavorful beer that can be enjoyed during the height of the Summer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a two finger white head that dissipates slowly to a thin cap and heavy ring around the edges. Aroma of light bready malt, grassy hops and a hint of sourness. Flavor is biscuit malt, light honey and grassy hops, finishing with grassy hop bitterness. Light flavored and otherwise unremarkable, but redeemed somewhat by the light honey in the background.

Surprisingly tangy and flavorful light brew. Attractive golden color in the glass with a foamy cap that needs to be renewed with another pour, but it's nicely sudsy in the mouth. This wouldn't be mistaken for anything but a Blonde, but it has some flavor. The honey is just perceptible, but adds a pleasant background flavor.

There is a slight brisk hoppy taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. A hint of resin and something herbal. Not much to get excited about, but a decent representative of the style. A little honey and flowers in the nose. From the 12 oz bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Phoenix.
