Nice spring beer. Not too heavy nor too light. Refreshing spice. First Evolution Craft Brewing Co beer...enjoyed it.

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?

I purchased this from Golden Crust pizza in Red Lion, enjoyed chilled from the 12oz in a tulip

The color is medium amber with good clarity and thin white head with good retention and fine bead. The smell is malty with a slightly toasted odor and mild yeast ester with hint of hops/light fruity odor. The feel is very good with good body and slight sweetness with mild floral aspect and medium carbonation with a mostly dry finish and low bitterness.

The taste is slightly sweet but malt focus is on light toasted more than sweet caramel with gentle herbal/spicy element and mild yeast which augments a mild fruity honey aspect and good malt with some subtle tea-like chamomile and fruity hibiscus in the mix with honey matching the malt in the taste with light toasted flavor throughout and dry finish. Overall I liked this more than most and would drink again since it is definitely one of the better honey/blonde/herbal beers I have tried in this category under 5% -the only criticism is it could use more hibiscus.

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.

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.

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.
