Santiam – A Samuel Adams R&D Beer

A- / 4.0

I tasted this while Touring Sam Adams in Boston. It’s a research and development beer, which they are currently calling Santiam after the hops they are using.

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on October 1, 2010

A- / 4.0

Appearance – Slightly hazy yellow-amber, off-white head, good lacing

Smell – Lots of doughy yeast, not too strong

Taste – Dough and lightly toasted malt up front, flowery hops at the very end.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, decent carbonation, refreshing

Drinkability – This was a quality beer. I honestly hope it finds it’s way to market.
