Samuel Adam’s Norse Legend

Sam Adams Norse LegendThe Samuel Adams lineup of Small Batch beers are ever expanding.  4 were released in 2011.  The potential 2012 releases are already taking shape.  The brewery is expanding not only the series, but with new styles too.  Just yesterday it was a gose, today a sahti – Norse Legend.

This ancient Finnish-style brew dates back to the 1500s as one of the oldest continuously brewed styles. Deep amber in color, this rugged brew’s distinctive aroma and flavor comes from aging on a bed of juniper berries. The herbal, woodsy, and ripe citrus character of the juniper enlivens a sturdy and smooth malt backbone for a fresh and flavorful brew. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting, This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations.
