COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams 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.

Draft Pint in March 2015 - Hazy Pale Gold in colour. Small white head. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Fruity; citrus lemon. Spicy; peppery. Sweetish malty fruity throughout. Not particularly exciting, but easy drinking and quite refreshing. (2015-03)

0.355l bottle from bierlinie in berlin, bb 08/2016. pours a murky orange with a dense white head. aroma of cinnamon, wheat, coconut. flavour of cinnamon, wheat, spices, honey, ginger, pepper. ok, it is out of date, but seriously, a summer ale? much more like a winter one. should try it fresh next time.

mikske79 (1640) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2016
De geur is redelijk futloos. Een lichtblond bier. De smaak is redelijk waterachtig. Een tegenvaller.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Cloudy dark straw color with dense storming activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head that last for 5 minutes, making some average leggings. Flavors of caramel, wheat, sweet grains, corn, citrus, noble spices. Slick medium body with excessive carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a roasted malty feel and a thick sugary syrupy feel. Overall I find this one not very well craft from the lack of intensity and balanced flavors. Overly sweet and feels adjunct.

An american, amber, unfiltered "summer ale" with white head. Aroma is a bit bad. Malt, cheese, phenol. Taste is bitter. Infected? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
