A tell tale sign that summer's finally here is when your favorite local watering hole has updated their Sam Seasonal tap to Summer Ale. It's a perennially refreshing selection, with a gorgeous golden color and forward notes of lemon, green banana, white pepper, cracker malt and subtle allspice. Flavors of toasted wheat and lemon pith unfold on the palate, complemented by medium carbonation and a slightly grainy texture. The finish is crisp and refreshing, with a lingering, juicy citrus character.
