Best Quote During Tasting
Speaking of ghost cans....
|Aroma - Yep, there's basil in it. It's a little hard to get past but the basil to get any malts really but the aroma, while different, is very nice. They use honey in it and I get a general sweetness but I personally wouldn't identify it as honey.|
|Appearance - The beer is gold and the head is just off-white. The head lingers and is made up of tiny bubbles.|
|Flavor - The basil is huge and the honey shows up for the first time for me. The basil is doing the heavy lifting for hops in terms of providing the balance and the malt/honey become a little like pie crust.|
|Mouthfeel - Medium+ body with a medium carbonation for a velvety feel.|
|Overall Impression - The basil worked surprisingly well in the beer but it didn't leave room for much else. It overwhelmed on the nose to where I couldn't get much else and it was definitely the dominant flavor as well. I mean...it's a basil beer so it is what you'd expect, I just wished that honey were a little more present. All I could think about as I drank this was how well it would go with spaghetti and I can't wait to try it myself.|
