This brew poured out as a dark orange color with a white head on top. The head stick around for a little while and gives off a decent lacing down the glass. The smell of the beer is grainy, slightly wooden aroma too. The taste of the beer is decent in my opinion. I feel that it reminds me of the Boston Lager a little bit even though one's an ale and one is lager. The guess the oaked flavor is in there giving it a slight kick in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel of the beer is drinkable much like more of the Samuel Adams brews. Overall I feel that this one should be matured a little longer with the Oak to really give it a bit more character.

SA had some labeling issues with this puppy, but it came out nonetheless.

Pours nothing like a Pale Ale. kind of thought it had to be pale to be a pale ale, but whatever. decent 3/4 inch head that leaves a thin ring.

The first thing I smell is adjunct grains with a little bit of oaky smoothness. not overly impressive.

The taste isnt all that special either. Light and airy like an adjunct lager. The addition of caramel malt stands out here. It would be a decent Marzen, but not what I want in an APA. I like the sweetness from the caramel malt. Definitely the highlight of the beer. Its just much too smooth and too light for me. It needs something. Theres an underlying sweetness that feels like brown sugar. Way too many sweet flavors here. Needs more of a grain or alcohol backbone to compliment the sweetness.
