Orange gold body with almost no head by the time it arrived to me. Lace is excellent, forming an almost unyielding wall around the entire inside of the glass.
The chain restaurant in which I sampled this beer apparently not only frosts it's glasses, but keeps it's taps extremely cold, which hinders the aroma quite a bit. I allowed it to sit for awhile, but the nose was still muted. Hints of banana and bubblegum noticable.
Flavors of banana, sweet wheat, very mild hopping, a lemony citrus, and a bit of spices. Spices seem to include white pepper and clove. Finish is bready with yeast.
Serving type: on-tap

I do enjoy sam adams as whole, and this beer is no exception, while the citrus can border on to much, I don't think it crosses the line into to overpowering. Overall a good staple beer, which is what i have come to expect from the sam adams line. I have had both cans and bottles, and i prefer the bottles, but that is almost always true of any beer.
