COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams® 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.

ain’t bad for a summer ale, not much flavor to tantize your taste buds, very malty with a belgian essence, malt aroma is strong as well, little to no hop presence, lagar style light amber color, very drinkable, I recomend Lagunitas #10.

Pours a slightly cloudy light orange with a small white head. Buttery citrus aroma. Taste is thin and smooth with a mild citrus hop finish and a buttery taste to it. Light and alright.

Pale yellow, malty, hint of citrus lemon flavor to it. Not a big fan. Sam should stick to the darker, richer beers that it knows best.

FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Light gold color with a medium head that quickly disappears. Fair taste and a slight bitter aftertaste. OK but not my favorite.

Bottle. Slightly hazy light golden beer. Fresh wheat aroma, but not strong. Fruity, wheat flavor. Medium body. Bland in a bad way.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 16, 2004
After drinking Sammy’s Hefeweizen this reminds me so much of it. Has a taste of a light beer and just isn’t much of a delightful cold one on a hot summer day.

The beer smelled really good, but it tasted like regular Sam Adams. It tasted too much like a cheap gin.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Translucent straw in color, no head (as served). Very bread like aroma. Sweet and clean flavor, malty and without hops, also without "notes of citrus and pepper." This is an okay beer but not one of my favorites from the Boston Beer Company.
