This is a prime example of why I don’t trust Sam Adams. Looks like urine. Smells like apple cider vinegar. Taste is the same but add lemon juice. This beer sucks.

Okay. What a difficult one. Clear crisp with an orange hue. Aroma is pretty tight on "beer" notes but the lemon juice is unmistakable. Slight hop flavour. Lemon forward. However not too sour. Good balance. Still a bit too fruit forward for my tastes.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized light white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body. The funky aroma was musty and sour. The off-tasting mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The funky flavor contained notes of mild hops and fruity. Not one that I would buy again.

Lemonade dominates the aroma and the flavor of this beer. Not a bad example of this style. Quite refreshing really.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with white fizzy head. Aroma heavy with lemon and sweet malt. Almost a fruity character. Lemon comes through on taste but fake tasting. Sweet malt. Light to mid body. Not my favorite. Rather drink a Zima.

I put lemon in a Pabst and compared it. The Sam Adams tasted fake and the Pabst tasted more authentic. Both are bad. Stick with Arnie Palmers.
