Beer Style: Helles Lager
Brewery: Sam Adams
Country of Origin: United States of America
Serving Method: Bottle Poured into Pint Glass
Background: I wasn’t looking to buy this beer. The one I was after was not on the shelf, and we wanted something Orange. I’m talking about my wife and I. I try to refrain from using the royal ‘we.’ After I searched two liquor stores, I played craps at the grocery store. No dice. Sam Adams has decent beer.
Let’s give it a whirl.
Taste & Aroma: I can faintly smell orange juice along with some biscuit notes. Nothing special here, but let’s see if the taste makes this worthwhile. This is a crackery beer with an orange juice middle and a malty finish with some spicy hop bite at the end. This beer is more complex than I thought it would be. The orange juice flavor is not as good as some other orange ‘type’ beers that I have had in the past.
Final Analysis: This is a fine beer. If you enjoy Sam Adams products you make like this more. However, this is not really my cup of tea entirely..
