Boston Beer Company, Samuel Adams Sam 76
In honor of Memorial Day, the Find Your Craft Show features Sam 76, a new hybrid ale/lager from the Boston Beer Company.
This is an interesting type of beer in that you can really perceive the unique elements of ale and lager in the beer. The light golden beer boasted the crispness and cleanness of a lager with some of the fruity aromas and flavors of an ale--rather interesting indeed.
The beer boasted a white bread/crackery type maltiness with a dose of floral hops. I also detected some other fruity flavors, possibly from the yeast strain that was used. For comparison's sake, I would liken this to a flavorful pilsner or Czech Lager.
This was an interesting beer, to say the least. It definitely boasts more flavor than semi-comparable Big Beers, and it's definitely worth a try just due to its uniqueness. Cheers and happy Memorial Day! #FindYourCraft #Ale #Lager #MemorialDay
