Beer Review: Samuel Adams New Albion Ale


Beer: Samuel Adams New Albion Ale
Brewer: Boston Beer Company
Source: 12 oz. bottle
Rating: **** (8.0 of 10)
Comments: This beer is a recreation of one of the earliest craft beers brewed 40 years ago by Jack McAuliffe whose New Albion brewery had to close up shop in 1982.  It’s a bright golden beer with a thick head and grassy/citrus aroma.  The flavor is sharp with an orange and hints of malt sweetness. The head thins out quickly but leaves some nice lacing on the glass.  This is an easy beer to drink and I hope it sticks around this time.
