3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 11-04-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a large white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, orange, semi-sweet, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, orange, wheat malt, tangy, and lightly spicy. The Palate is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this is a refreshing beer and can be considered a session beer. A beer I would consider drinking again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemon lime and coriander nose. Hazy golden, medium head. Fizzy . Stale malt and unmalted barley flavor, wheat bread crust, lemon, coriander. Spicier and fruitier than Shock Top, maltier than Blue Moon, eerily similar quality though. I have defended Boston Beer’s craft brewery status for years against those who suggest they should no longer be considered craft. Despite it’s size, Boston Beer has continued to make quality beer in a variety of interesting styles. This beer, however, makes me at least consider if they haven’t sold out.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is like dirty dish water with pale malt, some citrus and spice, and strange yeast. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. I am not really a fan it has some interesting qualities but it smells off and just isn’t yummy.

"Spring Thaw" mix pack 12 oz. bottle. My Sam Adams perfect pint glass shows a hazy gold with thin white lasting head. Smell is citrus and spicy wheat. The taste is fruity, lots of orange peel, lemons, and thin bread malt. Really to me it takes like a Sam Summer with spices added. Flavor really is nearly identical. Well, I applaud Mr. Koch for smart marketing strategy. This and a few others (Maple Pecan Porter and Double Agent IPL) are only offered in the Spring Thaw pack.
