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.

Serving type: bottle
