Pours well with a nice white head to look at and a slight haze. Nose is a shy hop , clean and some honey. I love the scent of honey on beer it's so tempting. It's not too much though and the dominant feature is the malt. crisp and breaddy. Drinks just like the nose with a moderate bubble. Clean flavors and the hop is well defined even with the addition of honey. It is lightly herbal. Just a bit of restrained flora. No fruity esters , just a hint at lemon. A touch of honey in the aftertaste and a bitter so balanced that there is nothing to say about it. Lovely summer beer.

Picked up a 6 pack from Babylon Beverage in West Babylon, NY. Definitely a refreshing brew that's good on a hot summer day. You can taste the honey up front and it has a crisp floral finish.

12 oz bottle, 000011116 printed on the bottle

Pours lightly hazed golden, moderate off white one finger head, leaves a thicker film and some moderate bits of lace.

Ripe fruit nose, with melon and honey.

On the palate its a load of honey, more ripe fruits, melon, pears, light pepper....pleasant

Summer ale - yup - better then decent - worth a try -servicable sessioner
