I'm never sure what I'm going to get with a few brewers of which Sam Adams is one. "On style" sometimes seems more of a rough guideline than anything else.
Slightly cloudy, no hazy, orange with yellowtinge. Big fluffy white head that drops slowly & leaves zero lace.
Smells malty, yeasty, orange, lemon, spice (clove, pepper & others). Good balance.
Taste is the same as the smell with hops added to the mix. Really good balance.
Medium body, medium effervescence with a degree of crispness. Taste becomes aftertaste and just slowly fades away with an excellent balance. I would definitely recommend this one, one of Sam's finest brews.
