Samuel Adams Summer Ale

From the Brewery: DSC_0377 DSC_0378

“Crisp and tangy with refreshing lemon peel and a hint of pepper from rare Grains of Paradise.  Golden, hazy, & thirst quenching, this American wheat ale balances bright citrus, Noble hops & spice for a lively brew that’s perfect on any summer day.” 5.3% ABV

The Pour: 

Got it on tap at Famous Dave’s in Fresno.  Poured a hazy golden color, with a foamy white head. Moderate lacing was left on the glass.

The Nose: DSC_0380

Lemon citrus, faint honey, mild hops and grain.

The Mouth: DSC_0381

Medium-bodied and smooth going down, just a small amount of bitterness on the back end. Flavors follow the nose pretty well: bittersweet citrus, bit of malts and a touch of a grainy aftertaste. Finishes relatively dry and light on flavor.

Well, my wife and I went to dinner and a beer review broke out. I was pleasantly surprised by this Sam Adams seasonal brew. I haven’t had it from the bottle, so I don’t know how it translates. That being said, I found it to be pretty easy to drink and refreshing. The flavors are light and can be enjoyed by most beer palates. I could easily see myself with a sixer at a summer barbecue. Not earth-shattering, but tasty. 7/10
