3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [draft - Airport Marriott - Greece, NY] Poured a cloudy yellowish color with a very thin white head that left good lacing the whole way down the glass. Strong wheaty aroma with a hint of lemon and pepper. Very crisp wheat taste mixed with the lemon I smelled and a good peppery finish that had just enough of a bite. I thought I could taste a cherry flavor on my lips from the glass.

Pours yellow, with a good head. Tastes of strong lemon, floral, and spicy...like ground white pepper. Finishes smooth and slight tangy and tart. Very nice on a 90 degree summer day.

Probably my favorite offering from Sam Adams. Pure summer. There's a tangy little zip to the taste that makes this extremely refreshing. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is go jogging in the evening when the sun is starting to go down and then cancel out all the hard work with a few of these when I'm done.

A great tasting summer beer, with a light head. An almost yellow appearance. Very crisp and fruity tasting. Good overall beer.

I really liked the slight citrus and hop spice in this one. Definitely nice to drink on a hot summer day. Moderate alcohol wasn't offensive.

As usual, it ways heavy on the palate, but finishes smoothly. Very invigorating!

Cloudy golden color. Aroma is wheaty and lemony. Flavor has a touch of spice, lemon again. Lighter to medium body. Decent, not bad in the heat.

Has a cloudy golden-orange color. The beer smells awful: it reminds me of a trash dumpster filled with cans and bottles at a local bar or fair. The taste is nothing special, and actually leaves a weird tang afterwards. Inside your mouth, this beer tingles and almost has a metallic taste. I would not buy this again.

The apearence is a clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is mild, slightly spicey perhaps a hint of fruit. The flavor is bitter.
