A nice easy to drink beer. Lemon aroma and flavor present though wheat character is rather subdued. Good mouthfeel, clean finish but nothing like the hoe.

A hazy yellow beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and with extreme notes of lemon, but also wheat is present. The flavor is very fresh with notes of wheat and lemon, but a thin body. A fresh summer beer, but too boring for me.

This beer is crisp and refreshing at first, but leaves a very unpleasant sour after taste in the mouth. It leaves the palate tasting "pukey".

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refreshing, to say the least. Pours a semi-hazy lemon-orange hue with not much head. Very bright and citrusy - lemon notes dominating most of the flavor and smell. Faint traces of vanilla and other spices. Seems incomplete.

Ligth golden, samll fizzy white head. Wheaty, vague aroma with notes of lemon and orange candy. Bland and boring flavour of wheat, lemon and water. Thin finish, hints of oranges and straw.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 One my favorite summer beers, Samuel Adams continues to impress me with their brilliant beer making and making it in such a mass quantity. This summer ale pours to a light yellow color with a thin white head and smells and taste of citrus (orangish lemon). Very light and refreshing and went down very smooth. I am biased thought to summer beers, for some reason they just hit the spot for me. This is a good overall beer and I would recommend trying it if you like lighter beers.

This beer is ok. It has a citrus flavor that really doesn’t cut it in a beer for my taste. It was more like a carbonated fruit drink in my opinion. Sam Adams is normally a better company than this. Some of their beers are wonderful. But not this one.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
July, 2003: Bottle. Yuck. Cloudy orange colour is OK - neither sufficiently attractive nor sufficiently unappealing to draw much attention to itself. Aroma is pleasing - soft citric notes plus some cloves. But the taste is initially quite bland, then stunningly foul. Mouldy oak - possible oxidisation, but best before date is May 2004 - 10 months away. ecrvich also notes a similar experience. I can’t get past that foul taste. And the after-taste is a long lingering peppery burn - no doubt from the grains of paradise. It’s now creeping up my nose. By god, this is one foul, foul beer. Drain pour.
