3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
While the aroma could be brighter with fruit, the flavor really delivers with a solid wheat/caramel base infused with fresh orange, grapefruit and apricot notes. Think fresh nectar mixed with a half pale ale half hefe. Medium bodied with a long lingering juicy finish.

Poured a pretty, hazy yellow with a pure white head. Very crisp, and very refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of my new favorite cheap beers. It’s not filtered, and is better than bud for getting wasted.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight note of some tasty hops and citrus...but then that’s about it. Thin, pretty ugly, and boring. On the flip side, it is well made and carbonated. Just boring overall

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange malt and light pine aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with large head. Sweet orange and lightly bitter grapfruit peel flavor. Nice creamy malt finish. Wasn’t too impressed until the malt hit me - really like this one.

I actually kind of like this. Hoppy, almost lemony. Refreshing, and the unfilteredness gives it a creaminess. Very reminiscent of Prima Pils. I still refuse to buy $9 a six pack for sam adams, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper-blonde pour into thick off white head that slowly dissipates into melting lacing as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass into a pool of foam . Aroma of spruce, lemony citrus, and malty biscuit. Initial flavor of doughy biscuit and sweet citrus that slowly fades into a bitter hoppy finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium head and some lacing. The aroma is reminiscent of a hefeweizen or berlinerweisse. There are notes of orange and lemon, wheat, and a little coriander. The palate is light and lively. Overall, this is a fair beer, bright and crisp, but nothing special.

Cloudy pour. Pine notes....with a little citrus. Hoppy taste that fades late into a smoother finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a bone white head that slowly recedes but leaves much lace in its wake. Smells like quite a bit of citrus and earth on top of biscuity malt. Not horribly complex in the aroma. Taste is a mix of biscuit malt again with lots of citrus and earth. Almost tart lemony flavor with a thin malt backbone of biscuit and pilsner? Thin body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and an almost sweet watery mouthfeel. This might make for a good lawnmower beer, but by the time spring rolls around this will be two seasonals ago in the Sam lineup. I’d rather have a Noble Pils really.
