Samuel Adams Light

Today I'm drinking Samuel Adams Light brewed by The Boston Beer Company in Boston, Cincinnati or Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. I used my Sam Adams pint glass, of course. This label is another where the brewery uses giant lettering to brand the name and buries what seems to be a beautiful lighthouse on the ocean scene behind it. Since it's a light, you get the full lab analysis too. Per 12 ounces: calories 119; carbohydrates 9.6g; protein 1.0g; fat 0.0g. Enjoy before September, 2011.

Malty sweet aroma, not too powerful. Well, I don't want to shock you, but this tastes like a light Boston Lager. The beer has the same malty sweetness and herbal tea-like qualities, but the depth of flavor leans much more to the bland side. Much more watery and lighter body. There is a nice hoppy character which provides a welcome bitterness and balance. The aftertaste is the only negative I have to say, just a little off. Your carbonation is prickly and adds to the beer's refreshment. A good light beer, if that's your thing. Personally, I have no problem with it being part of the Summer Styles 12 pack. Go for it.
