COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of the traditional German Kolsch style is fragrant and complex. The Alsation hop we chose imparts a subtle citrus note. Jasmine Sambac, a night blooming Southeast Asian flower, adds a delicate floral aroma and flavor to this layered and refreshing brew. Cheers!

There are a lot of descriptions listed here, I won’t attempt to add much. My notes: The appearance is fine, but almost no lacing. The aroma is very mild, but not cheap-smelling. The taste is mild (as described by others). The description by the company shows a lot of imagination. Maybe the subtle citrus note and delicate aroma of Jasmine escaped me. Overall, I don’t think it’s a great addition to the SA. collection. It’s a decent beer, but below their average.

Clear pale golden with a thin head. Subtle perfumey aroma of cryastal malts and floralness. Taste was crisp and pale, but not much in it.Light sweetness, no bitterness, a little bready. Hard to find the flavor. Drinkable and smells great, just so flavorless...

citrus, golden, clear, minimal head, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation, astringent. Bought this beer as part of a 12-pack with 6 different varities and two bottles of each. Samuel adams used to be a favourite, but most beers in this 12-pack wasn’t that exciting.

Not my cup of tea, too light and well... too light. Pours yellow with a thick white. Very carbonated and extremely light bodied. Kind of a sour aftertaste. This is a good beer for someone making the transition from Bud or Coors.

This absolutely bland. Why did they even bother with this crap? Another example of Sam Adams spreading themselves too thin.

A pertinent question: Does this beer suck mass ballz? Yes, yes it does. Hazy piss yellow with lots of flotsam. Distracting yeastiness.

Pour a clear golden color with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Taste is a little watery. Slight hops, very light citrus.. I’m not feeling the love. A big Sam Adams fan. Not on this one.

Wait a minute......? What the fuck are some of you talking about/?Please email me with the answer? This is an average looking pour with some lacing on the glass and a decent nose. But it doesn’t taste like anything. No flavor whatsoever. I really don’t care what a beer looks loke so much as what it taste like. This tastes like tap water with a little lawn grass and hops added=nothing!!!!!!&

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 This is a boring, watery beer with a soury close. There is not much difference of this and a poor pilsner. Decent carbonation. Urine yellow appearance, Very very very very very slight floral flavor when room temp.
