Caveat: I've had a cold, so my olfactory and gustatory senses are not at their peak. However, I think they were functioning well enough to submit a rating.
Draught @ Elmo's Pub, Tryon, NC
Sam Adams must be my favorite American Macro-brewery. They don't always come through with a solid-A beer, but for a brewery of their size and distribution I am constantly impressed with their offerings, particularly their seasonals.
The White Ale is no exception -- it is certainly not from Belgium, but it is fairer still than many other Americans in its class. A not-unpleasant coriander-and-wheat presence dominates throughout, reminding me somewhat of breakfast cereal. Not as polished or subtle as a European farmhouse brewery might create, but I'd gladly drink this one again -- especially when it's on-tap in a small-town bar!!
Serving type: on-tap
