crossovert is fairly spot on with this one. Very average, dry and not refreshing. Nothing going for it

pours golden with light white head. A tad hoppy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Not nearly as hoppy as the usual Sam Adams. Simple flavors. A little bitter. overall, a refreshing drink and a nice change of pace for SA.

Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Had nice look to it, less pale than I expected. A foamy head that stuck around for quite awhile with decent clarity to it. The lacing on the glass lasts the entire drink as well. Didn’t smell quite as strong as I expected. The hops were present, but not quite as noticable as I expected. Tasted pretty good, again not quite as hoppy as I would have expected but the hop flavor does stand out. The mouthfeel and drinkability was also good. Overall very crisp and refreshing. On a side note, my wife and I did burrito’s for dinner and this beer goes excellent with mexican food in my opinion.

The receipe for this must have changed because before it was a rather watery balanced pale but now has more hops. Decent but not among the best.

Has a clear soft amber color. With a nice citrus like aroma and taste. Has a slightly bitter mouth feel. Though I do like it I’m almost feeling it could be better. This one’s a good summer time beer.

Bottle. Pours a dirty lightish orange that’s clear with an eggshell decent head. Very much leans English in the aroma, with earthy hoppiness and toffee notes, but really just seems muddled. The muddiness of flavors continues into the taste where there seems to be sufficient bitterness, but back and forth with some light-fruit notes, back to the earth, and then some odd toffee. Just doesn’t come together despite having all the things I look for in the style. Thinner body with very vibrant carbonation. Bland and messy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden amber. Small head, minimum lacing. Taste is of grain and malt, but is overbalanced by bitters from the onset. The bittering isn’t strong, but it covers the mild flavoring of the other ingredients. Poorly balanced.

Bottle. I swear this is almost the same beer they used to just call Ale. Nose is citrus and malt with a hint of earth or nut. Flavor is the same, lemony citrus, spice notes, and plenty of malt sweetness. Crisp clean finish.

This beer pours a golden amber with a thin white head. The aromas are bread, nut and citrus. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly dry ity a light body. Cheers!
