12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange. A medium head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is apricot, bread, and lightly sweet malts. Surprisingly good aroma for a lager. The taste is really beautiful. Not too sweet with grain and floral hops as the primary taste. Nice spicy finish. Would prefer a little dryer finish, but the palate is clean in less than a minute. Texture is very nice. Light body with a creamy finish. Medium-low carbonation. An excellent offering and really rather unique. The closest cousin in the Samuel Adams lineup is the Summer Ale. The summer Ale has the grains of paradise and is more lemony. Both are refreshing and different. I love the unfiltered characteristic in this lager. It's a hit with me.
