Samuel Adamsģ Summer Ale is an American wheat ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body. The ale fermentation imparts a background tropical fruit note reminiscent of mangos and peaches. All of these flavors come together to create a thirst quenching, clean finishing beer perfect for those warm summer days.

Bottle Pours a pale yellowish orange, hazy, with a thin fairly dense white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, wheat, with a little spice. I donít detect lemon There is a musty, dusty taste here that throws me off a bit. Otherwise, the tipical soft mellow slightly sweet, easy on the hops flavor that is typical of the wheat beers. Plain but pleasant. Feel is soft and slightly chalky, and the mild flavors canít quite the alcohol that peeks through at the end. Lingering bread/wheat taste. Quite nice and easy.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2004 I have had many better wheats, This , to me, was awful, Maybe the draft lines were unclean, or the keg was sour. I could no finish this, it was bad. So bad I will not try another, at this bar.......I have had another one, bottle. Was good, light refreshing crisp, some lemon notes much better

Sam Adams...always a good decision. Has a spicy citrus smell with a hint of lemon. A crisp refreshing brew that is best on a hot summer day. Dry with a citrus taste. Looks golden orange.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden color with a descent sized white head. Light and refreshing ale for those toasty summer days. Lemon and yeast aroma. Flavors of citrus and wheat.

Light, critus, very reshing. Great chilled on a hot summer day. Very nice after a round of Golf under the blazing sun. The citirus is strong from nose to finish, but works very well within the scope of this beer. One of the better wheat beers Iíve had.

This is a decent middle tier wheat beer, nothing more nothing less. Very clean and refreshing, but nothing special. A decent brew in a pinch
