Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Skinny Dip is a full-bodied, figure-friendly tribute to the lightly attired summer months. This guilt-free lager’s frisky character and sunny flavor make it the perfect choice for kick-starting seductive summer fun. Lively Cascade hops and complementary peaches brighten a wash of bready malts with sunny citrus flavor and a slight fruity pucker, creating a crisp sip as invigorating as a frothy dip in a mountain pond. Shed your inhibitions this season and take the plunge: Grab a friend, go bottoms up, and share a Skinny Dip.

Skinny Dip makes its returns as the summer seasonal in 2015, and to celebrate we're supporting swimable waters by donating $1, up to $10,000, to Waterkeeper Alliance for every use of the hashtag #WaterkeeperDip. Post and donate!

12oz bottle from summer mix 12-pack. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass...

A: light-copper gold; half finger of light beige foam yields a considerable layer of sugary lace.

S: crusty, sweet malt; light citrus; hard candy shell.

T: pretty simple... Very much like the aroma - mostly sweet malt... Bread crust and brown sugar, followed by a light hop bite.

M: exactly what you'd expect from a 4.2% beer. It's OK. Medium body, high carbonation.

O: a nice summer beer!
