While I was at Rock Bottom, I also tried this brew since it was a summer night (albeit cool and rainy). It wasn't as sweet as the description indicated, but that's fine with me. The honey flavor was pretty subtle, so if you like a more dominant flavor, then this might not work for you. But I like my summer beers light and crisp, and this one was just that.

Appearance-Clear golden color w/ effervescence.
Aroma-very light beer essence
Taste- Summer thirst quencher w/ light honey & light hops in finish
This is not meant to be other than a summery excuse for a brew across many palate profiles. Order, drink & then order something more complex!

Served on draft at the Bethesda location. Beer is amber with a mild haze soft white head some lacing mild to moderate carbonation.

Aroma super weak, nonexistent.

Medium body, sweet, bitter at the back. Some honey in there. Decent finish but ultimately unimpressive.
