COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a weak "Ale" with strong flavors of citrus (lemon).

Big Head, takes a few minutes to subside. Slightly cloudy appearance. Better than many wheats but lacking the spiciness of my favorites.

This is better than the other output from SA. Not saying much, however.

If you want a summer wheat brew drink Oberon from Bells. More flavor. Still itís a Sammyís.

I donít know why, but i intensely dislike this beer. Itís really no different from the dozens of other summer wheat brews. Maybe itís the beers omnipresence all summer long. You canít get away from it, and it always seems to show up at parties.
