Created by Samuel Adams Employee Lili Hess, Hawaii This is a very creative spin on a pale ale. As Lili describes it, "Its like you are drinking a pale ale after biting into a fresh green seedless grape." This delicate brew is light-bodied with unique sweet, yet dry flavors from the grapes. What a combination...

This was surprisingly delicious. No actual grape flavor, that I could detect, but excellent light maltiness and not too bitter hop profile. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the longshot pack. Uh, yeah this was not so great. Overly sweet, fruity, grape smell and taste.. Kind of like grape juice that is not good. Glad this was a one off.

Bottle. Clear amber pour. Nose of pale malts, grape and grain. Taste of grape, caramel malts and fruit. Decent.

A light and crisp beer with a definite sweet note (not readily identifiable as grape). Dry semi sweet finish. Not bitter. Refreshing.

Thanks to Ian for the bottle. Copper amber pour. Grapes and maple syrup aroma, wacky. Taste is a little lacking, syrup and grape hints. Medium body. Not something I really like.

Poured into pint glass. Color is a clear dark straw color. 1 finger of head. Some splattered lacing. Some low pine hops backed up with small hints of grapes. Taste is a lot similar except the grapes come out more here. Moutfeel was a little crisp but easy of the palate. This was a very easy beer to drink. I didnt know if I was going to get the Sam Adams Long Shot pack because of this beer. I thought the grape was going to be stronger, but it turned out to be very subtle. At first a little shy towards this beer, but now I am quite happy that I had a chance to experience something different! Reviewed on: 07-18-2008 22:20:52

Pours a pale orangey copper with a frothy ivory head. Smell is quite sweet and grapey with the faint aroma of pale malt. I was expecting this ale to be sweet in my mouth but its actually quite dry with just a touch of sweetness in the finish. Its crisp and light, subtle and bright. I wasnt expecting much from the grape ale as I dont like fruit in my beer as a rule. However it was surprisingly tasty and refreshing.

I try to support fruit beers. This one makes it more difficult. Amber color with even bubbles. Weird palate. Light in texture, bubbly, and sweet. The hops are unusual, and there should probably be more finishing hops.

Reviewed from notes, sampled when the beer was fresh. Purchased as part of the Longshot Six Pack. Poured an orangish amber and was crystal clear. I smelled a faint hint of grapes. Mouthfeel was medium. I didnt really taste the grapes, but overall I loved the taste of the beer as well as the aftertaste. I would definitely drink this again.
