I admit I had read the description of this ahead of time and was pretty sure I would not like it based on its apparent similarity to Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy, which was like drinking unsweetened lemonade. But two PR's came with the Sam summer sampler twelvepack I bought on sale, so WTH, I am a fan of Boston Beer Co. products, and for $1 a bottle I'd give it a chance.

Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: A nice clear gold, half finger head disappeared quickly and left little indication it had ever been there.

s: Lemony citrus.

t: A strong lemon-like flavor. Sorry Boston Beer guys. Just as I feared.

m: Light, but that strong lemon backbone just grates on my tongue.

o: By now you get the point. I really hate to badmouth any brew, especially by Sam, but this does not even begin to rock my porch.

In its defense, my thirty-year-old daughter and her boyfriend bought a twelvepack and claim to love it. They like Leinenkugel Summer Shandy too.
