12oz bottle, 4.5% abv, enjoy before September
A - pale golden color, nice clarity, creamy white head holds good retention
S - lemon zest, yeast, pale malt
T - lemon zest, biscuity malt, yeast with a slight nuttiness
M - light bodied and refreshing
O - pretty good version of a lemon radler. I'd drink this on a hot day.

Fridge find - 12oz. bottle served in a nonic. Pours a dull straw-colored hue with a translucent clarity and a loose, off-white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is suggestive of an earthy/herbal lemonade. Taste consistent with nose; however, the balance between lemonade and lager is fairly well attuned. Mouthfeel is light in body with a mild acidity and a pleasant, even carbonation. All and all, not bad for what it is. I can't say that I'd ever buy it, but I wouldn't turn one down on a hot day either.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is lemonade and grain.
The taste is lemonade sweet with lemon tart to balance.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.

Refreshing summer beer. Carbonated well as part of the attempt to make it so. Heavy lemon flavor. More so than most "summer" beers. Better enjoy that aspect or do not bother. Good choice for the backyard cooler. Should have wide appeal for those who are not regular beer drinkers.

Mini Review: It's not often I change my mind on something, but if you drink this straight from the Sam Adams can it's actually quite refreshing. Nothing to write home about, but definitely worth a BBQ inclusion. Don't bother pouring it, and skip the bottle.

A very nice summer beer. It's a simple, light, lemon flavored beer, and It's honestly wonderful

Look: Very light straw/golden color- which fits the fruity taste well. Keeps a maybe .5cm head for quite a while, and remains carbonated for a good amount of time.

Smell: A very inviting fruity smell couples well with a lot more of an ale smell than the typical fruit beer.

Taste: Again, I was very surprised by this one. I'm generally into lager beers, but summer calls for something lighter, and this is a really crisp, refreshing beer. The citrus flavor is there ,but not dominating. It complements a fairly standard ale, with only maybe a hint of hops at the end.

Feel: Defintely a little more carbonated than a standard beer. Leaves a nice , gentle lemon after taste.

Overall: A wonderful summer beer! A little pricey in my opinion, but if it's on sale or on tap, definitely check it out!
