Sam Adams Summer Ale is being introduced with a new recipe from Samuel Adams, marking the first recipe change from the brewers in 23 years. The refreshed flavor in the new Summer Ale offers something interesting for drinkers to discover beyond classic citrus flavors. While the summery beer features refreshing and zesty orange, lime and lemon for a "roundness" of flavor, it also includes earthy and spicy notes.
With pureed citrus fruits, the Sam Adams Summer Ale is said to have a taste that's fresh and candied, as well as balanced by hops and the peppery spice of the Grains of Paradise. This reinvented beer recipe was created to deliver a dynamic flavor profile that's lighter and brighter than its predecessor.
