3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - pours murky orange with lots of bubbles. Good lacing and off white head. Nose is yeast. Aroma is citrus hops and some malts I can’t identify. Tastes a little sweet but mainly bitter. This beer tastes exactly the way I thought it would and I wish I had set the bar a little lower so I wouldn’t be dissappointed right now.

Summer Ale yet it’s a lager. Citrusy aroma and taste. Rather light on the palate like a summer ale. O.k.

In my best Harry Caray voice "Holy Cow". I honestly had a preconception that I would not like this beer. Pours a nice cloudy haze. I can’t stand too much citrus and this once has probably the perfect balance of just a touch for me. Smooth taste and not linguiring after taste. Best brew I’ve had in a long time!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden and head is white and frothy. Nose is a little underwhelming but contains a definite citrusy and herbal/earthy hop profile and some fruity esters coupled with sweeter malts. Flavor is filled with a somewhat delicate floral hops, fruity yeast notes and sweet smooth malts. Full body. sweet but crisp and medium bitter finish. This is a nice replacement for noble pils also wins the race. Not upset I bought a whole six.

Samuel Adams’ Summer Ale in different packaging? If someone had left a cup of lemonade in a patio, during a rainstorm, and then drank it the next day, this is what the beer would taste like. I feel like my soul is bruised from having this beer. And "premium lager" is an oxymoron, by the way.

Hazy yellow amber pour, with a white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, flavor is more on the sweet side with bready malt and floral hops. Pretty boring, but easily drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky orange with a thin white head that sticks around. Aromas of citrus, bread, and yeast. Tastes rather close to the aroma but it gets a bit fizzy and the more I drinkit, the sweetness dissipates and begins to get rather bland, kind of odd. Overall not a bad beer as I could throw these back no problem but it’s nothing I’d go out of my way to search for.
