Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
When the days get longer and the air gets warmer, we get outside quite a bit. And we build a big thirst. Summer Honey helps us shake off the winter and slakes our thirst for a refreshing brew. Summer Honey is a full-flavored summer seasonal ale. Brewed with a unique, balanced blend of spices, Northwest Hops, and Montana honey. Summer Honey is brewed during the early days of spring and released around the first of May each year. Light colored, light bodied, and very drinkable, Summer Honey sacrifices nothing to create a flavorful beer that can be enjoyed during the height of the Summer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a two finger white head that dissipates slowly to a thin cap and heavy ring around the edges. Aroma of light bready malt, grassy hops and a hint of sourness. Flavor is biscuit malt, light honey and grassy hops, finishing with grassy hop bitterness. Light flavored and otherwise unremarkable, but redeemed somewhat by the light honey in the background.
