This is an excellent if not overly complicated ale. I had this on tap at the house of cues in Cleveland. Very yeasty in taste and a little more sweet than your average wit beer. It doesn't have the tangyness assosiacted with the style but is very smooth going down. It isn't too complicated overall but it is very good. This is one of those beers that you want to have a sixer of when you are out griling or just sitting in the backyard.

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.
