Hazy yellow/gold in color, Cold Snap has a nose that emphasizes light orange, wheat, and a touch of coriander. The foam level on this beer is only slight and it leaves no lacing as you drink.

With the taste, this beer delivers about as expected. The flavors of wheat, mild orange, yeast, light spice, a small amount of coriander, and bread with other fruits linger in the background. These other fruit flavors are more noticeable as the beer warms and include apple and mango.

This Samuel Adams brew is similar to Blue Moon and other macro- brewed white ales in many ways. I find it agreeable and likeable, but I know there are those who will criticize it for not being unique or full- bodied enough. It seems like a decent beer for those times when you just want a simple white ale without the pretense. Give it a try if you can- it’s easy to find and has enough going for it to recommend.

This beer poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.

A peppery, spicy nose. Maybe a little citrus?

Taste of pepper and coriander. And yes, some orange.

This beer didn't really do anything for me. Thin, not much to it.

At $2.99 for a bomber, I thought it was a good price. It just isn't a very good beer.
