Samuel Adams Pale Ale

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This 5.4% pale ale is part of their summer seasonal mixed 12 pack.


The beer pours a lightly hazy golden peach in color. There is nearly an inch of white to off-white foamy head. The aroma is lemony citrus over toasted grain. The taste follows the aromas directly. The finish is moderately bitter, and dry. The beer has a medium body and moderate carbonation. This is middle of the road in every regard.


Samuel Adams Hefeweizen

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This 5.4% German-style wheat ale is part of their summer seasonal mixed 12 pack.

The beer pours a lightly hazed dark golden. There is a tall, fizzing head of white foam. The aroma is true to the style, cloves and banana, with just a touch of fruity tartness. The taste is banana bread and cloves, a nice hefe flavor. There is very mild bitterness. The beer drinks with a medium body and crisp, refreshing carbonation. This beer is the bright spot in what is otherwise an overall disappointing sampler pack.
