The foam was light wheat in color, semi-thick and very lacey. The color was a beautiful amber with mahogany highlights, not too much carbonation. The smell was a good balance of hops and wheat (more hops), a tad of orange with a slight bitterness. The taste was semi-robust of hops and spices -a heaviness to it. A cleaness of taste and a flowery undertone. Mouthfeel - medium-bodied and fresh. Drinkability - not too bitter, not too bland - a good session.

This is a very good beer. Not the best, but it is a good start. Sure you can hit and miss with the craft beer offerings out there, but Sam Adams is a known quality. Nice color. Smooth, hoppy taste and a good finish. Oh, and the alcohol content is significant.
