12oz in Seattle. Opaque gold brown, thick foam. Spicy herb, pepper and sweet basil. Caramel malt body with fresh herb and dry pepper. Interesting.

Sweet. Tastes somewhat like basil as well, with sweet honey at the beginning. Not something I would drink regularly, but good to have on occasion.

"An amber colored beer with a small creamy textured, off white head with not much hang time. It settles into a moderate ringlet. A nose of honey sweetness. A tasteness of honey and herbal spiceness Moderate bodied and smooth. Really nice. "

Bottle - thanks Brian! Pours hazy orange with a medium beige head, creamy and nice lacing. Aroma is grassy, grain, honey, herbs. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, herbal and light bitter. Not getting basil specifically, but an overall pleasant herbal character. Medium body. Quite interesting and certainly drinkable.

A gorgeous appearance to this beer, the strong head lets out a wide arrange of aromas I never thought I would find in a beer, but I didn’t get any taste from the beer. I have a feeling that the flavor would explode from this beer, if I was drinking it with food.

bottle. Golden with small head. Strange herbalness, I guess it’s the basil, but I wouldn’t recognize it as such. Drinkable, but that’s about it.

From the Bison Brewing Company’s four-pak, this beer has a delightful light herbal- basil honey taste with slightly sweet malt after taste. The clarity of this amber honey colored beer seems to vary slightly from batch to batch, but the excellent taste is always there. It pairs well with light pastas and fish. Overall, this is one on my favorite ’go to" beers.

Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. Needs to be poured over a salad or used to marinate some cheap piece of meat. Yuck.

Interesting beer. The initial taste lacked flavor. It tasted a bit like a generic light lager. The after taste was actually pretty good and strong with hints of honey. The basil flavor was lost completely.

Cloudy, light brown with a thick, ivory head.
Aroma is honey, sharp herbals.
Taste is spicy over sweet.
An odd mix....
Decent. just not appealing to me, personally.
