Appearance is a golden orange with a one finger head.
Aroma is sweet herbs, malt, fake honey.
Taste is slight herb and spice with a light honey sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium to full but no pleasant lingering flavors to speak of.
It's a solid beer but I couldn't drink more than a couple.

A: Honey colored, highly effervescent pour maintains a consistent layer of a medium dense foam, retains a remarkable lacing

S: Clean, soft aroma of basil builds into a sharper note as it warms a bit, light malts, spicy herbal nose, barely perceptible hop profile, a little grassy

T: Spice comes through against a floral honey background, flavor finishes with a lingering and pleasant bitterness

M: Medium and smooth, though I wouldn't have minded this being a bit thinner, it is satiny and highly drinkable

O: Interesting brew, seems well executed and enjoyable. Not a go-to option, but surely one I'd like to have around.
