Tonight I'm drinking Samuel Adams Summer Ale brewed by The Boston Beer Company in Boston, Massachusetts or Cincinnati, Ohio or Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. When I got there I tried to play a game with them as I have with others. Apparently, they don't like me toying with fake birth dates like 2/31/1971:
"We take seriously our responsibility to limit website access to adults of legal drinking age."
Anyway, I searched up and down on my blog because I find it unbelievable that I have never reviewed this beer before despite many encounters. I bought it today even though it's for summer because I am in Florida and when it hits 85 degrees, it's officially time to drink like it is. Drink by August, 2010.
Lemon and wheat aroma, nothing amazing but it is welcoming. Lots of wheat and citrus right away, mainly orange and lemon. There is also a bread and grainy flavor and texture to this beer. A nice crisp little zing comes through as well. The finish is slightly drier with a dirty aftertaste. Not overly complicated, refreshing, just as advertised. Not my favorite Sam Adams but it is a solid beer!
