Beer # 162 - Honey Basil Ale, Bison Brewing, Berkeley California
An interesting sounding ale - probably best suited for the summer months, but let's give it a try...
It pours a cloudy straw color with a thin head.
The aroma is of slight hop with citrus and floral notes. There is also a honey essence.
The medium/light body reveals honey with a crispness on the tongue. Hop builds in the body giving away to sweet malt. Mild basil notes are evident in the finish.
It finishes clean, the basil and honey flavors linger momentarily on the palate.
Light, crisp and refreshing with some unique flavors - Makes me miss summer!
