4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent beer! If only it wouldn’t have been kept under fluorescent lights at the store. Poured at a good temperature with a decent, foamy, frothy, thick, long lasting, cream-colored head and plenty of lace. Color is a clear orange amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, fruit, bit of skunk. Flavor is like nose, largely loses the skunk, has a great balance between bitter, tang, and sweet right up front and dance around each other in the mouth. Body is spot on; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, has good length and is great drinking! Hope to get more of this.

On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of perfume, light fruits, citrus, pale malts. Flavor of citrus, grapefruit, hop oils, sweet malt. A bit sweet. Hoppy but the palate is too weak.

Nice hop aroma. Floral. Malty flavor and a slight bitter finish. Taste is on the light side but a solid beer for Sam Adams.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fruity. The hops impart a very tropical fruit and grapefruit flavor. Not my usual thing, but it is very good. Very interesting beer. Maybe being a lager helps give it such a unique touch.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a extremely medium sized head of foamy very light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus crisp and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel malt, herbal aroma; a tiny amount of sulfur-ish aroma. Herbal, citrus, peppery hop flavor--with a light caramel malt flavor that gets sweeter in the finish.
"Enjoy by Nov. 2013"

Very tasty. Definitely much hoppier than the typical lager. A little weak for my personal taste but I sure won't turn one down!

Burnt orange pour, white head. Nose is citrus with a nice malty backbone. Smooth, oily from the hops, crisp bready finish from the lager yeast.
