3.42/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A- Golden/amber body with a bubbly, thin white head. Darker than most blonde ales, but not bad looking.

S- Honey, herbal tea, toasted malt, some spices.

T- Very light on traditional beer flavors, with more tea-like flavors coming through. Chamomile tea with honey are the predominant flavors that come through.

M- Definitely drinkable, light-medium bodied and medium carbonation.

O- Essentially an easy drinker with tea-like flavors. Not my favorite, but may be appealing to others.

Thought this was pretty good for the style. Taste is meadow, hibiscus, light berry, and honey. Really clean spring time sipper. Not the most complex of beers, but one I am glad I tried.

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.

A: pours a clear light gold into an American shaker with a thin white head that dissipates slowly.

S: grassy, malt, light caramels, wheat.

T: light subdued sweet malts and wheat turn into a nice grass flavor with some lemon hints.

MF: light body and poor carbonation, a bit watery.

O: just ok as far as the american blondes go, there are far better examples of the style.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with no head nor lacing. The smell had a sweet honey and chamomile up front. A light amount of grassiness comes through (I’m guessing that’s the hibiscus) and slightly floral. The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of the honey and chamomile. A sweet accompanying relaxing floral aftertaste starts and leads to a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was barely there but I’m okay with that. An exceptional amount of floral sweetness rolls over my tongue in a super smooth relaxing feel. Overall, I say this was a pretty good golden ale. I’d have this again.
