Samuel Adams Summer Ale

Very much like iced tea or lemonade from a sugar mix. That’s not a compliment. Hard to drink.

Aroma is lemons. Visuals are average American pils. Taste is like fruit juice. Palate is overly sweet without any longevity. Overall, Leinenkugel does this better, and I really don’t enjoy Leinenkugel either.

Not nearly as abysmal as their other offerings, but not great either – I think that the taste here leads to the idea that their porter would probably be rather nice, considering the price, but this mix of lager and porter only hints at what that might taste like. Rather like a weak brown ale, this is just okay.

Aroma is okay, taste is about average, palate is poor, visuals are average. Overall, it makes me want something else.
