I really recommend trying this at the brewery.
The pour is clean with a cotton like head.
A shade darker than amber in the color.
The floral smell is what sets off the good feeling. Take the time to get your nose in the beer.
The hops comes through in the taste and lingers a minute.
The beer finishes nicely and is constant from start to finish.

3.28/5 rDev -9.4%
Glass: Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.
Appearance: Perfectly clear pale yellow to pale orange. A finger of soapy bright white head is produced from an aggressive pour. Lacing sticks around beautifully and helps the rating here.
Smell: A bit of piney and citrus character, but overall relatively mild in smell. Nothing offensive, but nothing too exciting.
Taste: A bit of bitterness, with a relatively strong floral character. A bit of a "soapy" character in there as well. Malt is pretty balanced.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with high carbonation. A slight oily texture.
Overall: This one is not bad at all, but certainly nothing special. It is pretty balanced, if that is what you like, but the floral character is not for me. Wouldn't buy this one again, but I wouldn't turn it down, either!
