The third and final beer from the Samuel Adams LongShot Homebrew Competition six pack. Like the Strawberry Lager this is a nice looking beer with a nice orange color and perfect two finger white head.
Once you get beyond the appearance there is nothing else exciting about this beer. Aroma has some bread but not much else. Taste is blah with almost nothing happening, not sure what the hibiscus was supposed to add but I wasn’t getting much.
This beer was not necessarily bad but just completely blah with no discerning flavor. There were 2 in the 6-pack and I cannot think of a reason to open the second one.

Brewers Description: With the hot summer months and fun gatherings in mind, James brewed an easy drinking wheat beer with an exotic kick. This beer is smooth and light with the delicate flavors of hibiscus.
