Default A Sam Adams I Actually Like

For once I've tried a Sam Adams I actually like! I was at a Boots Texas Roadhouse this evening and they had Sam Adams White Ale on tap. I found it to be a really smooth drinkable beer. It wasn't too hoppy but it had enough for good flavor. They also had bottled stuff from a local microbrewer and the Sam Adams was better!

I tried the White Ale for the first time a month ago and I liked it too. Then again I have liked most of BBC's beers.

I just had their White Ale a few nights ago and thought it was a pretty decent Wit. I actually like the majority of their beers though, with the main exception of the Cherry Wheat...ick.

maybe if i had a sore throat it'd be fitting.

White ale is superb and being in New England, just about everyone has it on tap. The only problem is that its out for such a short period of time. I saw the first cases of Sam Summer at the market today...no more white :-(

The other Sam spring brew, the Double Bock, is also very very good. If you can find a six of that grab it. But, drink with care, at 8.8% ABV.

The problem, of course, is that the bottles of while ale will sit on shelves across the country while the summer ale just starts to roll. I started spring loving this beer last year, and picked up a sixer in the dog days of summer, and it was terrible. Like most wheat beers, drinking this while young is essential.

Is the white ale the replacement for the spring ale? I didn't see spring ale this year. Is the white ale the same thing as the spring, just renamed? If it is , I won't be drinking it. Sam Spring Ale was the worst of their line next to Cherry Wheat...IMO

White Ale is their spring seasonal.

I actually like just about everything that SA makes. They're not my favorites, but in a pinch they'll serve the purpose.

Sammy's usually pretty good... but, man, that Cherry Wheat is BRUTAL!
