Just perfect for those summer outings and barbecues.

Not being much of a beer drinker I am hardly qualified to be doing a review on beer.  If I decide to have a beer with dinner it is usually something quite benign like "Rolling Rock". I know, I know, most people would compare that to drinking water.  But I like it!  And when I pop into the local pub to check out a few innings of a ball game with a buddy I generally opt for the less expensive "Old Milwaukee" on tap.  How positively pedestrian! 

Anyway, last weekend I was at a cookout and my brother-in law offered me a Samuel Adams Summer Ale.  I kind of hemmed and hawed and finally agreed to give it a try. Surprise!  I loved it.  This was a beer with quite a bit more bite than I am used to.  But the kick in this beer is tempered by the lemon zest.  I found that Samuel Adams Summer Ale was the perfect compliment to the burgers and chicken I was devouring.   I would definitely order it in a restaurant if it was available.  Hmmmm.......maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.      Highly recommended!

Just perfect for those summer outings and barbecues. Just perfect for those summer outings and barbecues. Just perfect for those summer outings and barbecues. Just perfect for those summer outings and barbecues.

Nice review:) I'm a Sam Adams fan too, but lately I've been opting for Fat Tire. It has just enough flavor and taste without being too heavy.

Nice review, I like how you're branching out to comment on beers. :) You might like New Castle, a heavier beer with good flavor.

I just saw a commercial for this and was totally intrigued! I'm so glad I stumbled on your review. I'm also not much of a beer drinker but a good beer will earn my loyalty. Have you ever tried the beers at BJ's?  They have "tasters" (shot-glass sized glasses of beer) so you could figure out if you like something before buying a whole glass. They have a pretty lovely "seasonal" brew right now that sounds similar to this Summer Ale.
