Samuel Adams Session Ale ESB

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This is a 5.0% ABV take on the Extra Special Bitter style.

The beer pours dark golden in color, just a hint of amber, very clear. There is a tall half-inch or more of white, foamy head. The aroma is mild, floral, grain, with light straw, and a touch of honey and tea. The taste follows the aromas directly, the taste is mild, but delicious. The finish has the grassy, intense bitterness of a pilsner. The beer drinks crisp and refreshing. The name is so right on this, sessionable as hell.
