Pours a cloudy pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma of grass, slight spice, and butter. Light body with good carbonation. Hop spice dominates a low malt flavor. Spice fades into a light malt finish.

On tap in a shaker. Pours golden/amber with a thin, white head. Aroma of light malts, citrus, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, blends well to make a refreshing beer. Average texture. An ok beer.

Two tonight at the Texas Roadhouse Noise generator. Draft. After the huckle-buck frosty mug was thawed it actually looked nice in the glass. Nose of light hops. Rich golden with a thin soapy head. A brief showing of a lovely body quickly comes and goes. A thin finish. Hops and malts seem to be playing a game of shove you out of the way. a game that with this been no one wins with after two brief rounds the whole thing dies on the vine.

Not sure where I had this, but it’s definitely down in my notes. Average, not bad, but nothing special.

Overall Impression: I use to like this one more, it’s a warm weather beer, light, citrusy, session ale...take that for what it’s worth.

Hbuck72 (177) - Chickasha, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pours a hazzy golden color with a white head which dissipatse relatively quickly, but leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma is that of wheat, grains, and a lemon/citrus aroma. The taste is of grain, lemons, and spices. Nice beer, well balanced like most Sam Adams products.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold flavor with not much of a head. Fresh, lemony wheat aroma (though not particularly strong). Lemony hop taste, outside of the normal wheat flavor. Not a bad Adams offering, not as good as the Winter Lager. Interestingly, though, I despise the Sam Adams Boston Lager but find the seasonals enjoyable at the very least.
