Samuel Adams James Madison Dark Wheat Ale

This brew comes in a special Brewer Patriot Collection 4 pack from Samuel Adams that retails around $9.99. The other brews featured are Traditional Ginger Honey Ale, George Washington Porter and 1790 Root Beer Brew. They are all based on historical, traditional recipies many of which the Founding Fathers used to brew. I think it's really cool that Samuel Adams decided to recreate these beers so that we could get a little taste of what beer in the past might have been like. I started out with the James Madison Dark Wheat Ale:




Had to pick up this 4 pack when I saw it and try these for myself. The James Madison Dark Wheat Ale pours into my glass a quite cloudy dark brown with a half inch of off white head. Aromas begin with toasted wheat and grains. Hints of brown sugar, cocoa and an overall roasty aroma with a touch of spiciness. Laid back and enjoyable.

First sip brings a sweet roasted cream of wheat with some brown sugar and cocoa in the mix. A bit of fruitiness comes through as well. Touch of toasted oak on the way down with a subtle smokiness. Finishes with a slightly dry, sour graininess.

Mouthfeel is smooth with a bit of creaminess from the tightly bubbled carbonation that races across. An easy to drink brew and a tasty wheat ale. I can't say I'd actively seek this out but I'm glad to have tried it and could have a few in a sitting without a problem. Cheers to Sam Adams for recreating these four brews and giving beer lovers a little taste of the past!

Overall I gave this one a 3.85 out of 5.

I enjoyed the Dark Wheat myself along with the Ginger Honey Ale but the George Washington Porter and 1790 Root Beer Brew are nasty.

I really liked all four. My favorites are the Porter and Root Beer. They are as good as any of the modern brews that are available today. All outshine the pale stuff that most Americans seem to like, I'd perfer water.
