4/5 rDev +20.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
On draft in Milwaukee
Appearance is a slightly murky orange/yellow hue, thin white foam sustains, watery lacing quickly falls
Smell is a range of spices (nutmeg, vanilla, paradise seeds), light malts, yeast, wheat, and grassy hops
Taste is spicey throughout, the wheat yeast dominates, bread and pale malts enter midway, slight chalk, finishes very dry
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, creamy smooth texture, ample carbonation
Drinkability is moderate, great spice and flavor profile, unique, can be a bit biting for drinking in larger quantities, refreshing ale that surprised me as i am not a huge fan of the style
Serving type: on-tap

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.
