A: Cloudy golden yellow, nice two finger head with decent lacing.
S: Average in every sense of the word, nothing special, nothing adverse. Hints slight fruitiness with some astringency.
T: Very astringent, with a chemical taste that lingers. Some fruitiness, spice and yeast up front but that is quickly and brutally washed away by the harsh astringent flavor.
M: Fortunately the mouthfeel was medium-light in the body and not watery. Still, little comfort.
O: I could not finish this beer and the waitress was surprised I was leaving about 3/4 of the glass. I could not bring myself to choke this down even for the cost at the bar.
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.
