Samuel Adams Cold Snap
Enjoyed on tap at Red Robin... Went with the 22 oz happy hour special. Arrived in an oversized SA perfect pint glass. I didn't know this glassware came in this size... Anyhow, this was served cold.
A) Golden amber in color. Quite hazy as you'd expect. Perhaps a finger of soapy looking head, which settled pretty quickly to a collar. A bit of lacing at the top of the glass.
S) An aroma of wheat and sweet naval oranges, light citrus rind, and some spice. Hint of coriander.
T) Follows the nose... Enjoyable sweet citrus flavor, with crisp wheat, and a bit of yeast in the flavor. The spices don't overpower.
M) Lighter medium body with relatively crisp carbonation, and yet a rather creamy texture.
O) Nice drinkability... I don't drink Blue Moon often, but this was somewhat similar. Probably a nice intro beer. More than anything, I felt compelled to order this, given the temperature outside was 9 below zero. No regrets... It was pretty darn good.
Paired with a delicious cheeseburger and bottomless fries...

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
A - Hazy light peach. Two finger head settles to a film that never leaves. Nice lacing.
S - Tangerine and coriander. Plum comes through after sitting a few minutes.
T - Malts, citrus, and coriander blend blissfully. Finishes with light hops.
M - Medium
O - Delicious and very refreshing! If you find one, grab it. Excellent session brew. Cheers!

2.84/5 rDev -17.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Cloudy haze of a light golden hue, some orange tinge
Smell: Nice, crisp, citrusy aroma. quite nice
Taste: At first extremely refreshing, hints of citrus, fruity. Then it seems a bit stale and sour like oranje juice thats about to spoil. Finally a very unpleasant musty alcoholic taste is left in my mouth. That is all I can think about after I take a sip
Mouthfeel: inadequate, a bit too watery
Overall: Sub par, borderline poor. Won't be drinking this brew ever again.
Would recommend to a woman or someone who doesn't enjoy darker beers.
