I enjoyed this beer on tap recently at Ruby Tuesday's.
I was pleased to see it on the list. RT's lists my beloved Yuengling as an option, but alas, it is only for their east coast establishment. BFE Ohio gets no Yuengling. However, they did have SA Summer Ale (SASA?) on draft.
The appearance is mildly cloudy -- not unexpected for a wheat beer.
The smell was a bit lost on me due to a cold (unfortunately).
Taste was excellent and balanced. I enjoyed the hint of spice which, to me, had overtones of cinnamon or nutmeg. I also enjoyed the fact that the spice was not overwhelming, nor was the beer obnoxiously sweet.
Mouthfeel was fine -- no objections.
Drinkability was excellent. This beer complemented my steak and mashed potatoes perfectly on a summer day. An enjoyable brew!

Samuel Adams Summer Ale brewed by Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams), with an ABV of 5.3% This brew pours out a cloudy amber color with a thick white head. This is an unfiltered brew you can not see thought it . The smell is fruity with a hit of grains. Summer Ale has a different smell to it. It's not bad it is just different . The taste is light and crisp you pick on some fruits in the taste. The mouthfeel is light and clean. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. Samuel Adams did a nice job with this one. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would get this brew again.
