2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, I’ll admit up front that when I picked up a mixed 6er and grabbed this brew, I was oblivious to the fact that this was a Sam Adams product...anyway, pours a slightly opaque gold - thin whitish head that recedes quickly. Aroma is some corn, some wheat, some skunk, and a pinch of hops - meh...kind of reminds me of my first experience with St Pauli Girl when I was 19... Flavor is bitter and slightly skunky as well...turns sweet mid-drink with some corn and slight citrus hop notes. Ends bitter and lasts for a long time. Palate average for the style. Not really digging this one...

Bottle from Virginia bottle shop. Golden body with medium head. Nose is corny, malty, papery. Tate is not great, some malts and straw notes. A bit prickly. Disappointed this is a Samuel Adams beer as it is marketed as a smaller brewer. Okay.

12 oz bottle. Clear piss; nice, barely foamy white head becomes a medium-small white ring. Aroma bread, yeast, malt, hay, floral. Flavor light and somehow both crisp and muddled; bready, biscuit, dandelion. Medium if not thin body; heavy carbonation is very nearly fizzy. BLAH.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a one finger white head. Aroma smells a lot like wort, but that eventually goes away leaving a pleasing spicy hoppy yeasty aroma. The taste is light, mildly fruity, floral, yeasty, mellow hops leaving a dry finish. Better than I was expecting considering the average score here

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with very active carbonation and a foamy white head. Aroma of lemon and grass. Taste is reminiscent of a german pils. A bit of lemon tartness in the flavor as well. Very crisp and refreshing. Also has a bit of wheat taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Luck Pie Lodo. Pour is clear straw in appearance with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grainy, cereal, straw, light grass, wet-dog, light corn, and tropical fruits in the aroma. Grainy, grassy, a touch of vanilla, weedy - though the hops are very faint - hay, biscuit, and cereal with a ligh bitter finish. Thin body with high carbonation. It’s OK, but I would never have guessed that this was a "pale ale." Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Light copper colored pour pour with a short off-white head. Aroma reminiscent of a lager although possibly with a bit more floral and grassy hops. The taste is unlike an American pale ale of today given the caramel and toffee malts and muted hop character. The story on the bottle made this seem as if it were the pale ale that influenced others that came after it. That may be so but it has more in common with Sam Adams Boston Lager than any pale ale I have tried. Meh.

It poured a clear golden yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma was of white bread, pine and light citrus. The taste was sweet, bready, straw and some subtle white pepper. Very nice.

A real home brewed taste. Has a little Sam Adams taste to it. Medium mouthfeel, not super crisp. Balanced full flavor with not too much hops. I want to taste more hops.
