2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not exactly the hard core flavors that I believed many people were expecting. Has a standard ale flavor. A light grassy taste that must be from the chamomile and hibiscus. Husband tastes the honey, personally not seeing it. Aroma is standard ale, nothing special. Color is nice deep amber. Tap

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notched on the side says Jan, 2015.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with no head nor lacing.
The smell had a sweet honey and chamomile up front. A light amount of grassiness comes through (I’m guessing that’s the hibiscus) and slightly floral.
The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of the honey and chamomile. A sweet accompanying relaxing floral aftertaste starts and leads to a wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was barely there but I’m okay with that. An exceptional amount of floral sweetness rolls over my tongue in a super smooth relaxing feel.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good golden ale. I’d have this again.

Lots of hibiscus and honeyed ale. A bit syrupy sweet.
Not a bad ale with its chamomile finish and definitely interesting, but not a brew you'd turn to when spring doesn't have you seeking new things.

Clovey aromas, floral, mild hibiscus, faint chamomile, some honey. Hazy golden straw with a fairly lasting white head. Pretty balanced, a little fruity, faintly like cinnamon. Medium bodied.

Clean & crisp but nothing memorable. It has a decent dark orange pour but the aroma leaves a lot to be desired. Clean but boring taste. Ehhh - spring beers.

Weird beer; not a drain pour but wouldn't buy again. Very bland but there is an interesting balance of malts with a touch of honey; followed by a sour finish.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is dark golden / orange and pretty clear with a small, off-white collar. The aroma is sweet, with ripe fruits and sweet breads. Grainy and too sweet. Out of balance. The finish should be drier. Cloying and a chore to drink. When I think of a good blonde ale under five percent abv, I think thirst quenching, refreshing, easy drinking beer. This beer misses the mark.

Not so bad for a summer session ale. Pours blonde with ok head and lacing. The hibiscus comes out with some nice floral aromas rather than the sourness the flowers sometimes make for. Water with fizzy carbonation. Finishes lightly sour with some crispness. Bottle at Velvet Lounge.
