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.

DraftDodger (1035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2016
Copenhagen 31/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Fakta. The usual fellow hailing with beer mug and some idyllic looking summer water (a lot of mosquitoes are possibly spawning there). Pours hazy pale yellow with high white head. Moderate lacing. Settles as dense 1 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma is fruity sweet and pleasantly lemonadelike. A little citrus and a little orange - quite tart. Strong carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is a short medium sweetness followed by a more pronounced tart bitterness. Aftertaste is rather short and quite tart. Not very complicated but refreshing with a tart twist.

Defreni (2995) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2016
Flaske. Nu er jeg også lidt forudindtaget efter at have set en dokumentar hvor Koch opfører sig som et mensch. Duften er hyldeblomst, smagen er frisk og sommerlig med en masse hyldeblomst. Dejlig grill øl.
