A surprising offering from Sam Adams; malty, yet refreshing in the summer heat, with a much toned-down hop presence compared to their standard lager.

Reddish copper color with not much head. Smells like sweet Carmel and slightly toasted malts. Taste very similar to the smell but has a fruitiness to it possibly some type of Apple.medium light body with medium carbs. Overall it's just an ok beer

I like to get this occasionally at restaurants since I live in Boston. Can't get in bottles or cans, only on tap in/around Boston. Very solid beer.
