Samuel Adams Summer Ale (draft)

On tap at Winberie’s in Princeton. A bit of a sour note, but a delicious, highly available, well priced beer. A quiet aroma, mostly due to chilled glasses. The appearance was average. The flavor had a nice depth, and was refreshing, but was nothing out of the ordinary. The palate was nice, but again muted. Not a bad beer, but nothing near great. Much better than the average macro.

First Impression: A pretty average beer, especially when you are expecting something of a craft variety. Aroma was dulled due to chills, but muted even after warming up. Visuals were a pale copper with an okay off white head. Taste was better than an American pilsener, but not by much. Palate was thin and simple. Second Impression – Not bad. Not a great beer but probably still the best they have to offer at Lawrence Grill.
