3.65/5 rDev +9.9%
Part of the Samuel Adams Beers of Summer Variety 12-pack - $13.99 at Publix in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a dark golden body, notably clarity, with a smallish, brief, white head. Rather meager lacing.
Smell: Modest, mild-mannered pale maltiness with the thinnest hint of implied sweetness to it. A spiciness including whole clove with secondary fruity notes of citrus and unripened banana.
Taste: Subtle pale malts, a little heated honey sweetness. Floral, fruity, with soft touches of green banana and old flecks of lemon peel. Very minor hop bitterness, but a firm bite of clove bud. Drying, lightly fruity, still fairly clove-y on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Light tastes, light alcohol. But that was to be expected.

LOOK: Bright golden/amber, touch of haze, thin white lace.
SMELL: Fresh toasty bread, light bubble gum, floral hops, faint tropical fruits.
TASTE: Crisp carbonation, creamy, light on the palate, dry upfront, bitter, lemony, apple-y, toasty malts, biscuity, dry, yeasty, tea-like linger.
Not too shabby. Reminds me of some of the first basic Belgian Pale Ales I had in my early beer geek days. No frills, but it's got some flavorful and quite drinkable. Wish it was a tad bit cleaner on the finish though.

Shared at bu11zeye's 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a yellowish color with a white head. The aroma is fairly fruity with a lot of orange and lemon notes, with a little bit of malt and some yeast thrown in. The flavor is similar, with a nice wheat malt backbone, with some grain and some orange also present. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward. Nothing offensive, but nothing really stands out.
