(What is Brew 52? Go back and read about it here.)
Just got back from my trip up to BC Canada to visit my sister, brother-in-law and niece. I miss them already! It was the first time the BF came with me, so my niece got to meet her uncle. They got along swimmingly; he’s totally her favorite.
So that’s why things have been kinda quiet around here, but I’m workin’ on a whole bunch of delicious stuff coming up! For now, let’s go back to the beer..
What’s not to like about Samuel Adams? Really, I love them. This beer was no exception.
“…the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock…” “…bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.”
The aroma is bursting with citrus; crispy lemon and orange fill you nose. I loved the way the beer smelled. It has a nice, light, refreshing flavor with a loose bubbly, foamy head. It was a bit hoppy (i.e. bitter) but it only bites at you for a split second, and doesn’t linger; but because of that initial hit, it was hard for me to keep drinking.
Next week, Brew 52 will be reviewing something unusual…. Fruli Strawberry Beer. Yep. I said strawberry beer. See you then!
