I can tell you with certainty that Samuel Adams Summer Ale (or Sam Summer) is VERY popular in Boston, especially amongst my Medford friends. It is certainly a good looking beer: hazy gold in color, with a large pillow like white head. Citrus and wheat are what I am getting mainly from the nose. Very bright in places, the grains of paradise add a nice element overall. Taste is not quite as impressive, with a lot of that wheat and fruit flavor getting lost in the carbonation. That being said, the finish is really pleasing: very well rounded and showcasing the sweetness of the wheat. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and perfect for a hot day like today. Putting back a few of these has never been a problem for me, especially in a barbecue setting. In the past, I have dumped on this beer a bit, but right now I have to say that I am enjoying it a lot. It begs for a good food pairing...burgers sound perfect.
