look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the 12 ounce bottle into a Hefeweizen glass. poor is a beautiful opaque golden orange color obviously unfiltered. Smell is very rich of spices citrus slight coriander. the order is someone intoxicating but I believe it is a false pretense to the actual flavor of the beer. Flavor is of sweetness and bitterness at roughly the same time definite taste of coriander right at the beginning it fades away into a gravelly carbonated finish. not feel as I said it was very carbonated and it goes down slightly gravelly. All in all it is an average beer. Not Sam Adams' best.

Samuel Adams White Lantern brewed by Boston Beer Company with an ABV of 5.5% This brew pours out cloudy amber color with a small, white head. White Lantern is an unfiltered brew; you can not see thought it. The smell is rich with grains,spices ,and a hit of bitterness. So far this brew is ok. Now for the taste, it is smooth with some citrus. The mouthfeel is nice, clean,and refreshing. This brew has a nice balance to it, I would get this brew again. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5 .
