A good, flavorful lager. Some honey sweetness in this beer with some modest citrusy hops, also. It’s not very complex, but it’s very balanced and highly enjoyable. This is another solid lager in the Samuel Adams canon. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
I think this used to be the spring ale..it’s an ok brew..can taste the honey along with malts..decent. HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2013

O- Very refreshing and surprisingly good. Much better than I was led to believe it would be. Holtguy (176) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Crisp, bright beer with some piney, floral aroma. Flavor follows this. Quite good for a beer I wasn’t too enthusiastic about before trying. Good spring/summer beer. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013

Pours a hazy golden amber with a finger of white foam that falls to a quilt of the same. Nice frosty lace. Smells of grain, hay, some corn. Not getting the citrus everybody seems to be raving about. The flavor is sweet with grain and grass with a little sweetened lemon zest, and some earthy yeast. Mouthfeel is the best aspect of the beer, slightly heavy with moderate carb combines to a velvety, unobtrusive body. Above average, but not that great.

Bottle (Spring Lager) from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Hazy gold, fluffy tight and lasting white head and gentle condition. Slightly yeasty nose with a touch of spicy hop resins, quite sweet in the mouth with some banana fruitiness, a tingle of bitterness and a pronounced yeastiness, finish is again yeast heavy and sweet with some muted lingering hop resin merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2013
A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Lots of Light, Mild White Head, Very Minimal Lacing
S: Mild Citrus, Mild Malts
T: Malty, Mild Oranges, Mild Honey
M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Somewhat Watery
Overall, an obvious attempt to appease that masses as it is a light lager with not much going on. I miss the Noble Pils...this beer was average. SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at Red Robin. A Sam Adams that I would pick over a lot of their other stuff. Clean taste. Just not much of it. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a half inch of white head. Smell is tangerine, grass, clove, and a touch of honey. Taste follows nose with a big zest of pine and lemon in the finish. Light body with moderate carbonation. daniele (9021) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2013
