Aroma is rather unpleasant. Very mild flavor, initially slightly sweet. Quickly gives way to wheaty lager notes without much bitterness or flavor on the finish. I enjoy a more hoppy, flavorful beer.

Citrusy nose, hazy, unfiltered... a nice break from the 946 IPAs out there, and all of the Holiday beers.

Samuel Adams Escape Route brewed by Boston Beer Company, with an ABV 5.0% This brew pours out a cloudy light amber color, with a nice white head. Escape Route is an unfiltered brew you can not see though it. The smell is rich with flavor, grains and, malts. You also pick up on a sweetness in this brew brew. The taste is nice, you pick up a hit of citrus, grains, and malts. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5

Pours with a medium, white head. Has a hazy, golden color. Aroma is not very pleasant. Sort of citrusy like an ale, but masked with an unknown bitter smell. Initial taste is fruity like an ale, but has a bad aftertaste of malts similar to what you would find in a Coors Lite. Personally, a sad failure from one of my favorite breweries.
