Bison Organic Honey Basil

I came to Sliver for the first time today and in addition to having pizza, I also ordered a pint of Bison Organic Honey Basil. It definitely* has a honey taste. So sweet and so good. 8:01PM PT

Having forgotten that I already tried the Bison Organic Honey Basil, I returned to Sliver today and ordered another pint of it.

It has a hazy orange color and the head quickly dissipated. It has a sweet smell with what appears to be a mix of honey and orange. There's some slight carbonation in the mouthfeel with a sugary, honey taste. There is, however, a slight bitterness. Overall, it's very refreshing. Unfortunately, I don't detect the basil. The beer leaves a nice lacing on the glass. 6:42PM PT

The beer was really good; I liked the taste. It was like a sweet-tasting pale ale without the typical pale ale taste. Maybe the basil had an underlying effect of the taste. 7:04PM PT
