Tobin’s Review 3.5 out of 5
Samuel Adams Summer Ale has a light caramel color with very little head. The beer is soft on the tongue with a light caramel flavor. I also pick up a little taste of lemon although it’s not a fruity beer. This beer reminds me of a shandy and is a good light refreshing beer, perfect for a hot summer day!
