pours a cloudy medium gold in color thick two finger white head and lots of sticky lace that both hold up very well. strong bold citrus and a light floral aroma. nice blending of the orange citrus taste with the yeast and hops. smooth medium mouthfeel and slight pepper taste. this beer wins on all counts. i see this beer going a long way with sam adams. definitely one of their better brewed beers.

Let's not fool many of us. We love beer, and this is one of the best drunk beers by Sam Adams. Goes down delicious from the beginning until the 12th. As a famous drunk once said: "brevity is the soul of wit" 250 characters... ... ... ...

A - honey colored, unfiltered with lots of sediment, and a frothy white head that leaves some nice lacing.
S - It smells of honey, sweetness, citrusy and floral hops, some very slight malt, and lemon citrus.
T - Lemon zest, some pepper and spice, a tad bit of grain, and then the floral and citrus hops come in, finishing off with a mouthful of pure white breadiness, which lingers in the aftertaste.
Overall, this is the best lager I have ever had. It's the beer I always dreamt of finding. This is what I would have tried to brew if I had ever brewed beer.
Absolutely perfect. I just which the aroma was slightly more prominent.

appearance - 4.5/5 - Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head.
smell - 4/5 - Smells of lemon or orange peel.
taste - 5/5 - Instantly refreshing Helles flavor backed up by bright citrus flavors. There's more in there that I can't quite describe as anything besides "Helles".
mouthfeel - 5/5 - Has a high level of small bubble carbonation that enhances the refreshing spring flavors and clears out those flavors making room for the next swallow.
overall - 5/5 - Quite an impressive complex lager for a seemingly simple beer.
