M- light-medium body with crisp carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish

O- verry sessionable and good for a hot day. Just enough flavor to keep you coming back.

I poured a bottle into a Samuel Adams glass.

Appearance- Golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Strong spice aroma with some yeast and lemon.

Taste- Yeast and clove flavors at the start that blends into a sweet malt taste, then finishes with a mild lemon tartness.

Mouth feel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A decent, drinkable beer but not my favorite from Samuel Adams.

This poured out as a clear color color with a white head on top. The retention is decent but hardy any lacing. The smell of the beer is yeasty, there is some citrus and a touch of spice. The taste of the beer is bready with some spicy citrus. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a good carbonation. Overall it a decent beer, drinkable dry, not too bad.
