12ounce brown bottle freshness dated for December 2011

Jim Koch and his brewmasters have another great brew on their hit list!

The color is pale golden, the head is short lived though which lowered it's appearance points. The aroma is indeed Jasmine floral, crisp refreshing, definately a good summer quencher!

Poured from a 12oz bottle out of the summer sampler pack into a pint glass. This one was a home run.

Pours a brilliant clear golden yellow. Good fizzy white foam builds, holds and recedes.

Beautiful floral smell. Like a fragrant meadow. Clean, inviting.

Taste has a perfect blend of citrus, malt, a nature-like flowering taste. Clean, crisp finish. Subtle hop close.

Hoping this one sticks around. Perfect summer beer - much moreso than the Sam Summer!
