Samuel Adams Summer Ale
An American wheat ale produced seasonally since 1995, Samuel Adams Summer Ale has a crisp, spicy flavor from malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa. The Summer Ale contains a blend of Two-row Harrington, Metcalfe and Malted Wheat malts and Tettnang-Tettnanger Noble hops, and the fermentation creates a background note reminiscent of tropical fruits such as mangos and peaches.
