|Review||Reviewed: August 21, 2009
This was the first craft beer (other than Abita) that I remember buying in Louisiana. It’s also probably my least favorite Sam Adams beer.
This one poured a light amber color. Decent tan head. Smells very hoppy and piney, which isn’t something you expect from a Lager. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, earthy and malty. It kind of has an oak barrel taste to it. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, very robust. I don’t drink these too often anymore, but it is a quality beer and I thinks it’s top notch. This is a nice year-round beer and I would recommend it.
I give it 4 stars, Most Excellent
