Beer Review: Samuel Adams Latitude 48


Beer: Samuel Adams Latitude 48
Brewer: Boston Beer Co.
Source: 12 Fl. Oz.

Comments: It’s a pretty beer, copper-colored with a thick, yeasty head.  The scent is not strong, but there’s a whiff of sweet caramel and bready hops.  For a beer dedicated to hops (Latitude 48 is where many hops-growing regions fall around the world) it has a nice balance of sweet and bitter, with caramel & citrus preceding the hoppy aftertaste.  The head dissipates quickly with little lacing but the color is still attractive.  This is a good beer and a worthy addition to the craft of my local brewery.
