Samuel Adams Pale Ale pours to a golden color with a touch of orange. The carbonation in this beer is below average, even though the foam is still heavy enough to leave some lace on the glass as you drink. The body of this beer is crystal clear and the aroma is a little bit grassy and herbal, with the faintest touch of fruit.
Samuel Adams Pale Ale offers the taste of pale malt, a touch of toasted caramel, some apple, and some earthy hop notes. The body of this beer tends toward the lighter side, and it is easily quaffable. It doesn't have the citrus- like qualities common in many American Pale Ales. It is actually an English Pale Ale style of beer.
Samuel Adams Pale Ale tends toward the lighter side, but it is certainly not devoid of taste. It has a certain earthy hop presence and there is even a touch of apple in the taste. In these regards, it holds pretty much true to the style. I would prefer a little more body, but the taste is actually pretty good and the beer is super- clean. It's nothing exceptional or particularly memorable, but it is still an all- around good glass of brew.
