Attractive red hues, professional grade clarity with half inch of head. Average retention. Inconsistent lacing. Aroma did not deliver on the mighty oak imagery.

Taste was the same way, very minimal oak presence, under utilized hopping schedule I think. Comes off as virgin oak, doesn't have anything else going for it. A version of this with more oak, more hops would be a better version. Decent base to start with.

Had this beer some time ago entering it here just to catalog it. Oak flavor was way too strong and just plain tasted wierd to me. Have tried many Sam Adams beers but finding one I like is rare.
