I just bought a Sam Adams summer pack so that 1- I could get more bottles, and 2- so I could try some different beers. It has lager and light lager, a hefe, blackberry wit, pale ale, and the summer ale. Are these good representations of these styles?

So you're saying Sam Adams doesn't know how to make a wheat beer with fruit in it? Noooo

(next you'll tell me not to trust their lambic!)

Same experience here. I liked the summer and the lager but did not like the blackberry.

Well I had one of the blackberry this evening. I didn't think it was too bad. Not my favorite but not undrinkable.

I don't have the imperial white. But i guess I'll stay away from it. I also had one of the hefes. It was my first hefe and I must say I liked it.

I don't like how they put beers like their light lager in their mix packs.

You sure you had the Imperial White in your summer pack? I think that was part of their Longshot series.
