Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Beer pours a mostly clear amber/copper color with light carbonation. Head appears rich and frothy, but fades away in a few minutes to a marginally impressive foam on the surface.
Smell: A light wheat-like essence accompanied by slight sweetness in the malt. A little citrus in there, maybe.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Definitely very light on the palate, medium to high carbonation. The beer really gets going if you swish it around. Almost like a soft-bodied wheat beer. Very malty, which is probably the best quality. Aftertaste is very tinny or aluminum-tinted.
Overall: It came in a sampler pack...2 bottles of 6 varieties. Glad I got this one out of the way, it just leaves me longing for the OG Samuel Adams Lager (or better yet, Samuel Adams Ale).

Best by Aug 2014, poured into a pint glass
A- pours a clear dark golden color with an orange hue, small creamy white head that retains nicely, due to some carbonation bubbles shooting to the top
S- toasted cracker malt with a subtle bready sweetness, faint grassy hops
T- light bready sweetness continues into the flavor with hints of a cream ale, small traces of grassy hops mix with a bit of yeast, lightly toasted malt on the finish
M- light-medium body with moderate-but-biting carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and dry finish, high drinkability
O- the best light beer I've had to date, this certainly isn't a style that I enjoy often, but SA did a good job with this one
