Draft hazy yellow pour with minimal white head. Very nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is a mild wheat yet hoppy goodness. The flavor is of hops piny and citrus. Mild body and flavor yet refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint citrus, bread and perfumey hops. The flavor was sour and tangy lemon with touches of bread and perfume. Short tangy citrus and perfume finish. Light body. Disappointing.

Orange-ish, maybe a little cloudy, and a decent sized white head. Crackery, toasty aroma, with some grassy notes. Flavor is a little bit of caramel, toasty, some subtle spicy notes - like cinnamon and coriander - and a grassy, dryish finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat hazy golden straw pour with ring of white head. Sweet light citrusy and floral bright hop profile with a surprisingly sweet finish. Pretty tasty for a style that I’m not to particularly familiar with.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 Light straw with haziness from unfiltered materials. sweet, bread malts, some bitterness, and citrus. Can’t pick up anything else. Refreshing and good.

Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow-orange appearance with a white head. Bready, floral, grassy, fairly sweet aroma. Tangy, banana/pineapple, fairly fruity, floral, grassy flavor. Pretty solid brew.

There’s an odd viscosity in Sam Adams beers that I don’t like. The hops are noble and decent aroma. Nothing like the germans

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from a mixed 12 pack. Nice, herbal, grassy aroma with plenty of biscuity notes present. Some lemon is also detected. A really quaffable beer. Mildly hazy yellow-golden body with a small, whitish head. Fairly quickly dissipating. Starts a little spicy and herbal, before there are lots of biscuity and doughy malts in the middle. Almost a weird fruity estery follows. Finishes with some grassy, mild herbal spiciness. I was hoping for better, but this beer just seems to not flow as much as I would like. Seems a little heavy on the body.
