4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thick head of white foam on top. Nose is wheat, citrus and coriander. Very creamy on the palate, this flavorful beer imparts a lightly roasted grain flavor along with a hint of citrus that is lightly hopped. Pairs well with light cheeses and crackers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Weak corn and popcorn nose, not necessarily buttery. Shimmering amber, medium head. The flavor, however, is lemony corn and buttered popcorn. Not one of Boston Beer’s finest efforts. Noble Pils was better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with a thick, long lasting white head. Nice aroma is of citrus fruit, biscuit malt and noble hops. Medium, smooth body. Bready malt, citrus fruit, light hops and musty unfiltered yeastiness fill the mouth. Finish is long and balanced. As usual, nice session lager from Sam Adams.

(12oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a dense tall rocky egg white head and descent lacing. Aroma of lemon, toasted grain, florals, and grass. Flavor of floral, lemon, grain, and lightly soapy with a soft mouthfeel and mild bitterness. Nicely crafted Noble hop beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is a fruity pale malt. Taste is citrus and spices with a wheat aftertaste. Overall not their best, but refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours hazy amber with a big fluffy white head. Nose is--whoa--candied pineapple. There’s honey and and light malt in there too, but the candied pineapple is unmistakeable. Taste is sweet malt, yeasty with some floral hops coming through and lingering delicately through the long finish. A little too aggressively yeasty for my tastes, and maybe a tad too honey-sweet, but it’s still refreshing and is something I could buy a sixer of and not feel bad about the other five sitting in my fridge. One thing though--what the hell is a spring sampler doing out in January?

Bottle from Kroger. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is a little malty, a little citrus, and floral. Taste is malt forward, a little bitter and fruity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Frothy white head that actually lasts fairly long on a hazy bright lemony gold. Some citrusy and herbal hop notes and some crackery notes in the aroma. Grassy and hay like hops with biscuity crackers. Lighter body with nice carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2012 Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a cloudy yellow color with full white foam, somewhat lasting with a little lace. Very aromatic: mild malts, bread, earthy and slightly spicy hops, some citrus, mildly peppery yeast phenols. Simple grainbill, but a really great, crisp, tart flavor. Very tasty and refreshing. I love what the residual yeast adds, I don’t understand why almost all beers are filtered. Highly recommended.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT. Pours cloudy, dull gold with a huge, frothy white head. Some drab, ripe citrus with biscuits and hay in the nose. Light sweet flavor, some bready biscuits, lemon, dough, straw. Light bodied with average to high carbonation. Mild bitterness in the finish, some lemon citrus, hay, lightly sugary dough. Pretty basic overall, but also pretty decent.
