Samuel Adams Summer Ale

Here’s my problem. To me, an Englishman, “Ale” always conjours up the image of cask-conditioned ales in pubs with roaring log fires. Associating an “Ale” with summer drinking seems, well frankly, silly! I like my summer drinks to be thirst quenchers, with much less about them.

This brew pours a cloudy orange, reminiscent of iced-tea. In the summer months I’d prefer the tea to this stuff. Very poor head, with a distinctly non-lemon aroma, despite the lemon addition being hightlighted on the label. A little malty taste with a pleasant bitter aftertaste were the highlights of this incredibly disappointing beer.
