Springtime....always means Sam Summer. This seems to be everywhere of course in Boston of course. Kind of a go-to beer for many, and I always mildly like it. Typical wheat ale....pours a nice clear color and has a nice crisp taste. Doesn't blow me away by any means, but it is a good beer that is consistent.
