2.85/5 rDev -14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
A: Hazy, golden yellow, with a small head of white foam, quickly dissipating to a meager lace.
S: Faint overall -- it took a few deep whiffs to really get a sense of it: Bread-like malt notes, and some fresh-cut grass aromas, with just a hint of citrus.
T: Malt was slightly sweet, but mostly bready. Wheat flavors fill out the middle. A slightly tart, then bitter hops flavor finishes it. Overall, it just tastes watered down.
M: Moist, with below-average carbonation.
O: Typical fare from an American macro-brewery. Not terrible, but not very good. Passable as a thirst quencher with a meal, but certainly not good enough to enjoy on its own.
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.
