Clear caramel amber beer with a small off-white head on top that dissapates quickly down to a thin sheet. Light amount of visible carbonation up from the bottom. The smell does have a nice oaky presence underneath a caramel and toffee nuttiness. A hint of vanilla as well.
Nothing very mighty to it as it doesn't pack too much of a punch flavor-wise. But as a light spring beer, its not bad. Light caramel notes play off a bit of oaky roastiness, giving the impression of oak aging. The roastiness is pleasant and easy going, but mild mannered to match the slight vanilla notes. Almost effervescent in the mouthfeel, and it leads into a dry finish. Not much to mention on the hops, but this is a malt heavy beer and thats ok. It works well as an easy drinker, one to sip on and not think to much about. Good little afternoon beer on the deck on a cool afternoon. I probably wouldn't buy a six pack of it though, but worth a try.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a dimpled mug.
The color is a deep orange/gold with a finger of foamy brownish head and some thick lacing left on the glass.
The smell is oaky with some sweet malt flavor that is right behind that nice woody aroma that is right in the nose first. There is a spicy bit of aroma as well and it has a slight caramel flavor.
The taste is big butterscotch and is almost like candy as it comes down. There is some nice sweet honey flavor as well that seems to lay down on the tongue and helps the oak flavor slide down and makes this taste just delicious.
This beer has such a smooth feel that is goes down easy even thought there is a bit of a punch that was not expected. A real jem from Boston Beer.
