Like any good summer ale, it's light and smooth, only this one comes with an interesting finish thanks to the spice. The aftertaste is almost hoppy, but relax, IPA haters, you'll definitely still like this.
Flying Dog actually pulled this thing off. Dead Rise Summer Ale will satisfy Old Bay fanatics, but it's good enough for everyone to enjoy, crab cakes or no.
