A-amber with a creamy stable head
S-fake Belgian sugars and pale Belgian malts. Smells like a micro brewpub's attempt at a Belgian.
T-comes in with an okay flavor of slightly bitter and slightly raw pale Belgian grains and sugars. It's a simple but decent flavor. After-taste is grainy and a bit aged. It works.
M-medium creamy carbonation with a watery finish
O-I would say this is an okay attempt at a Belgian pale ale, though I wouldn't apply the term IPA to this. I've noticed Samuel Adams doesn't attempt Belgians too often, but I'd say this is a fair start. Go out and try this.
