COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Mighty Oak Ale is the winner of our 2011 Beer Loverís Choiceģ campaign. This brew combines the malty sweetness of an ale with the complexity of oak aging for an overall well-balanced beer. The aroma has a subtle earthiness from the UK hops, while distinct notes of oak come through in the flavor of this amber brew. The vanilla and caramel oak character is balanced by the sweetness and subtle roastiness of our blend of malts for a smooth dry finish.

This is a great ale. Nice rich color, dark copper like; aroma is deep, the oak is very pleasant and the finish is good. Def. a top choice if you can find it when itís available.

Sweet malt aroma. Clear deep amber color. Apple vanilla caramel taste With a hint of smokiness. Crisp and clean to the finish. Very enjoyable. Has a nice zing to the tongue. Best from S.A. since Octoberfest. This one really blows me away. Iíll be returning to this one for sure.

solid all the way,has a nice rich taste with nutty and caramel malty goodness. the hops are ever so slight with a touch of pine. the beer is smooth with a sharp bite at the end and mighty strong .

This beer does not seem to get very well ratings but in my opinion it is a very good beer! the beer pours a light amber with a small frothy head. the aroma is a sweet vanilla, some caramel and slight oak. The taste is lots of oak, roasty, slight sweetness and very easy to drink.

Delicious oak ale from the Spring collection. Very evident oak flavors from the aging and hints of floral and vanilla. Wouldnít mind picking this up in a 6-pack

Poured into a shaker glass from a 12 ounce bottle notched June.

A: Clear dark amber with a light tan head.

S: Sweet caramel and vanilla mostly, itís warm an inviting perfect for a chilly night.

T: Sweet caramel and vanilla with slight oak hints towards the end. Really solid beer here I enjoyed greatly.

M: Medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

O: This is a solid beer, I like the balance to it here and honestly the only thing keeping me from giving this a slightly higher end-rating is due to it only being available in variety 12 packs.

Golden in color. Earthy and malty it tastes and drinks more like a lager than an ale. Very nice brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Brewfest oak aroma. Medium bodied. Dulled filtered amber color. Thin glass lacing beige head. Really does let the oak shine, the vanilla-caramel smooths out the fruity amber malt. Credit given where credit is due, they really nailed this one, the session oak: future style.

Light sweet hoppy aroma, sweet beginning with cherry and caramel finish, lightly carbonated and wet mouth feel. A very drinkable beer but maybe a bit too sweet.
