4/5  rDev +22.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into my Terrapin pint glass.

Appearance: Copper with a thick white head at first. No lacing. Some head retention.

Smell: Orange, metals, and some hops. Easily the best light beer I've ever smelled, but then I've encountered very few (intentionally).

Taste: Orange again, tasty malts, hop balance. Faint metallic background, which I expect from light beers. Very, very easily the most flavorful light beer I've ever had.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, and refreshing.

Drinkability: High for a light beer. I'm surprised this is so enjoyable, but then, this is Sam Adams, and they have a certain level of quality they aspire to.

Winner.
