Created by Samuel Adams Employee Lili Hess, Hawaii This is a very creative spin on a pale ale. As Lili describes it, "It’s like you are drinking a pale ale after biting into a fresh green seedless grape." This delicate brew is light-bodied with unique sweet, yet dry flavors from the grapes. What a combination...

A light and crisp beer with a definite sweet note (not readily identifiable as grape). Dry semi sweet finish. Not bitter. Refreshing.

(12oz bottle, best by 7/08) Large and creamy off-white head that leaves nice lacing, atop crystal clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, corn, berry, some spicy. Taste is medium sweet, nectarine, wheat, toast, some grape, light orange. Finishes with the grape characteristic. Light-medium body, some effervescence.

Interesting fruit aroma with some caramel malt backing. Beautiful copper/amber color with a white ring for head. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit papery, and arguably a bit vinous. There could be fruit of a grapey sort. There is certainly enough hop to balance the sweet. It’s an interestingly different "pale ale". I wouldn’t drink it constantly, but it is something that would be good every so often.

hopscotch (9727) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle… Clear, textbook-amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic, tight retention. Faint note of honey in the subtle aroma. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and relaxed carbonation. Way too sweet. White grapes, honey, toffee. Not nearly enough bitterness to approach any semblance of balance. Finishes sweetly as well. Kudos to headbanger for his generosity!
