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.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 ReRate-pours a golden yellow hue with a small white head. sudsy head with lots of carbonation. grainy aroma with some lemon notes. grainy flavors with lots of residual sweetness. grainy finish. Easy to drink if you like your wheat beers tasting like grains.

My dad buys this during the summer months, so it has some sentimental value...iíll only drink it with him...otherwise, itís up to you if you like it or not.

Itís piss in a bottle. This summer stuff is awfull. Iíd rather drink MGD or even Blatz, and thatís saying something. For some reason Iíve assocaited it with Peteís Wicked Winter brew even though they are different companies. Iím a big fan of Peteís.

Very refreshing taste. Somewhat like a citrus taste to it. Not bad

I had visions of lemon Pledge before trying but it actually worked well on this brew. Not a favorite but I can see it being refreshing after a lawn mowing.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 Draft. Cloudy straw gold color. Minimal white head actually clings. Wheaty flowery smell. Nice sharp tartness. Probably a tad heavier on stomach than it should be. DELIGHTFUL yeasty/bready mouthfeel & aftertaste makes me yearn for more. Surprisingly found this extremely enjoyable.
