Poured into a shelf glass, Samuel Adams Cold Snap has a thin, white head, a turbid, bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and the thinnest bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, slightly spicy, white bread, and the flavor is of assorted spices, white bread, orange peel, some citrus juice, coriander, and hard candy. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Samuel Adams Cold Snap finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable. Like many of the Samuel Adams specialty beers, this one falls flat. I. It’s just an overall dull beer, without much character.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.
