Summer is defined as: the warmest season of the year. But my definition includes a bottle of this! Bright, a tad citrus, spice notes and easy to drink. Truly my go-to beverage and it's not Summer without Summer!!!

Lemon, honey, malt. Drinks well. Would be better if it weren't for a slight weird herbal type flavor. It isn't over powering, but it's there and it's a little off putting.
