In theory, this ale brewed with mint leaves, honeysuckle and Bourbon flavors should work well. The mint aromas are muted and muddied, coming off more generically green and vaguely herbal than mint-specific, coupled with notes of grass and lime leaf. The mint flavors appear in fuller force on the smooth palate, but just overly so, dominating the additional notes of honeysuckle, pear, white pepper, cracker malt and yeasty spice. If you're a fan of mint, it's easy to drink and finishes clean.
