Bought the Brewer's Choice 12-pack and had high hopes for this one. Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass. Nice copper color with very little head that dissipates quickly. Mild lacing is present.

As for smell, very run of the mill red ale scent to it. Taste is along those lines - similar to the Irish Red, which is also part of the 12-pack. I haven't had that one in a while, so I could be wrong but that's the first thing I thought of when I tried this. Very malty flavor with vanilla/caramel notes.

This is very average. It's fine as part of a bargain 12-pack (only $12.99) but I would not seek this one out. Looking forward to trying the Whitewater IPA next - Go Pats.

Best by June 2012.

Poured into a FFF shaped glass.

A: Poured a crystal clear amber color, with 1/2 finger head that stayed afloat as I siphoned the liquid below it. It looked about right for this style.

S: More on the malt than hop side, with very much a "mallow creme" candy sugar profile on the nose.

T: A bit thin, and a bit stomach acid-like. There really wasn't much flavor here, and the flavor that I got really amounted to malt and intense sugar.

M: True, this didn't leave a lingering sugar coat on the palate, but overall, there really wasn't much here to get excited about feel-wise. Measly carbonated....

O: I was looking more forward to this one than any of the others in the mix pack, and I guess I was letdown in epic fashion.

Glass - Pint

A - Coppery colored brew with low-moderate C02 bubbles. It produced a 2-finger head that sorta fizzled away just after pouring. No lacing left on my glass.

S - Earthy and and herbal hop characteristics upfront with a nutty, caramel, toffee malt thing going on.

T - I get a very nice balance of leafy and citrus hop notes upfront, with a smooth caramel and brown sugar malt profile. It finishes with a touch of hop spiciness, extremely low bitterness, and a faint cocoa powder note that really works well with the flavor profile.

M - High crispness with a smooth feel and a medium body.

O - I think this Red Ale is pretty standard in that nothing is wowing about it, and it's a good example of the style. I think the flavors are very balanced, and I really liked that hint of cocoa that I picked up in the taste. So overall it's a very drinkable brew that I'd definitely drink again, but I won't go out of my way to buy it.

12 oz from a variety pack. Fresh by July 2012.

A - Light red with a fair head that extinguished quickly, little lacing.

S - I get little from this one with a few notes lightly expressing themselves. Vanilla and oak are making a brief appearance.

T - Malt sweetness with the pinch of bitterness expected in a red ale. Very pronounced vanilla in this one. Far from overwhelming, but pleasant none the less.

M - A well controlled carbonation helps this beer out a good deal. However after the initial kick the beer hits a creamy phase and then begins to dry out. Mediocre.

O - This is a good start for Sam. Adams but as with much of their brews, I would never purchase a 6-pack of this brew alone.

Came in the Spring Mixed Pack. This to me is a English style beer in its hops and its malt profile. Not a bad beer but the vanilla notes didn't really add to the mix and I found the beer a little one dimensional. I expected more from the description of the beer.

Appearance holds a reddish amber that supports a thin dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell is light on the nose with the caramel malt, oak and fruitiness from the hops. Taste of the malt, vanilla, with a good balance of hops leaving a lightly bitter dry oak finish. Mouthfeel is light on the medium side with good carbonation. Pretty much a simple amber leaving not much to mull over.

Transparent amber colored ale. Weak head with descent retention and spots of lacing.

Clean smell. Just faint bread grains and cherries.

Mellow malt backbone with mild smoky tones. Hint of cherry sweetness. Medicinal hop bitterness. Tart in the finish.

Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Finish is on the dry side. Slick texture.

Just ok. Nothing about this beer really blew me away. Simple flavor and a little boring.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear reddish amber color with a half inch beige head that quickly disappears.

Vanilla, oak, and toasted malt lead the aroma, with caramel sweetness and a subtle pine essence.

Flavor is citrusy initially, lemon, then subtle toasted malt, a hint of vanilla, and an oaky, lightly bitter finish.

Body is medium with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Kind of an odd beer. Would've expected a hoppier aroma and a bit more malt presence in the flavor.

glass: pint

clear amber/brown color with a 1 finger semi-creamy head. Lacing is nice. Aroma is rather mild. A little brown sugar, grapes and light bread.

Taste is very mild and subdued. A little butterscotch, grape, and a soft bread. A bit astringent on the finish. Mouthfeel is a soft medium, typical of many of SA beers, medium carbonation.

Nothing groundbreaking here, just a simple, plain, well-balanced red ale.

Served from the bottle into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a dark reddish/brown with frothy dark off-white head that leaves some droppy lace

S- Highly metallic aroma, some dark fruit, and caramel

T- Rich caramel maltiness, medicinal notes, metallic taste, hint of dark fruit

M- Smooth, medium body, moderate to low carbonation

O- A pretty average beer, not very complex. The bottle described the beer as having caramel, vanilla, and oak notes, but I could taste no oak or vanilla notes.

Part of the Samuel Adams Spring Brewmaster's Collection Varietal Pack. According to the label: "Distinct notes of oak come through in the flavor of this smooth amber ale. The vanilla and caramel character from the oak is balanced by the malty sweetness and roasted notes from our blend of four malts for a long, dry finish. Cheers!" Date notched on the bottle is Mid-June 2012.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Samuel Adams' Sensory Glass. Served at 47º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp fizzy/frothy caramel-cream head with a slightly below average retention, settling down to a thin surface cover shortly thereafter. Lacing is thin and spotty. Body color is a deep copper-amber, very mildly hazy with dramatically lighter colors and clearer complexions in thinner areas. Carbonation is abundant and active. Overall a bit thin in the appearance, head presentation and body tone could probably improve a bit. 3

(Smell) A dominant vanilla bean flavor over a tart caramel husk malt bill forms the majority of this aroma. Oak characteristics are mild but certainly noticeable, lending well to the vanilla. Hop presence is very limited but bitterness is easy to smell. Aroma is overall nice although a choosy few may find the vanilla too sweet, dominating and even a bit cloying in the role it lands to the aroma. 3.5

(Taste) Up front, a caramel malt bill with a much lesser vanilla emphasis than in the smell. The husky caramel and hop bitterness certainly makes the overall flavor a bit more bitter and dry than one would expect, perhaps a bit too much so. The dry, faint vanilla finish is where the oak comes through the most, alluding to a sharp, rustic, woody, and dry finish. The flavor may not be fantastic for an oaked ale, but there's certainly no shortage of flavor here. I was a bit disappointed in the tartness and a lack of sweetness to balance the flavor out. 3

(Mouthfeel) Mouthfeel is consistently slick throughout with just a touch of air, although it doesn't hit the mark in any focused texture, it merely waffles in limbo. Alcohol presence is low/medium. Body is medium. The texture isn't very well focused, which doesn't aid the drinkability of flavor of this beer well. 3

(Overall) I figured that this could potentially be a difficult beer to swallow, as some oaked ales can be. While the oak itself wasn't the disappointing part of the beer, a lack of presentation, focused texture and unbalanced tart, bitter flavor certainly makes this a much more difficult beer to drink than it should be. There are certainly some necessary tweaks to be made to this beer and I would inform consumers to be wary when considering this beer. I'm not expecting it to return to the lineup anytime soon. 3

Bottle part of Sam Adams taster pack. BB notched July / 2012. Poured fridge cold into a wine glass.

Pours a clear amber body with nice head that laces lightly and lasts longer than expected. Caramel and sweetness in the nose with a hint of earthy hop lingering behind it. The body is very similar with light notes of the advertised oak aging, though this comes across as fresh raw oak. The oak works with the caramel notes in the beer, though the beer comes off a little watery for such an otherwise thick seeming beer. Finish is dry and otherwise clean. The beer almost seems as though they took Boston Lager and threw an untoasted oak spiral into the keg for a week...

A-Pours a copper color. Completely transparent. Head is minimal. Does manage to leave light lacing rings around the glass.

S-Light, sweet maltiness. A bit fruity. Wood/oak is very mild. It is detectable, but barely. The aroma is light but definitely attractive.

T-The flavor is incredibly light. Subtle notes of cinnamon, sweet bread, and caramel. Oak is very mild. The flavor is overall too light. This brew is watery. Finishes a bit spicy.

M-Body is light and watery. Carbonation is barbed. Decently crisp.

O/D-A mellow drink. I would rather have a beer like this (mild) than a gross over-exaggeration with the oak. A simple drink. I guess its worth a try.

I got a bottle of Samuel Adams Mighty Oak Ale in their brewers choice twelve pack. This is the one that interested me the most out of the three new beers in this pack, I'm interested to see how it turns out, so lets see how it goes. The best buy date had a notch for June 2012. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks good on this beer, with a nice picture of a big old oak tree. It poured a nice looking amber color that looked copper when held to the light and had three fingers worth of fluffy off white head that died down to a thin layer that stayed till the end and left a little lacing. This beer looks good.

S- The first thing that I pick up is a good amount of lightly toasted malts that had a medium sweetness and imparted some grainy and bready aromas. Next comes the oak which is pretty light and imparts a light oak and vanilla aroma. I didn't get any hops in the aroma but I did get a slight caramel aroma towards the end. The aroma is ok but it could have more oak.

T- The taste starts out with a good amount of toasted and caramel malts that have a high amount of medium sweetness and imparts a grainy and sweet caramel like flavor. After that comes the oak which is pretty light and only imparts a mild amount of oak and vanilla flavors, there was also a creamy flavor in the middle that reminded me of a Genny Cream. The finish was sweet with a low amount of bitterness and a grainy aftertaste. The flavor was nothing special and with only a light amount of oak and no hops makes the flavor seem bland.

M- Smooth, creamy, medium bodied, and it had a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was nice and it worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought that this was a pretty average beer and as far as Amber and Red Ales go this one wasn't that memorable, the flavors just seemed to be bland and with a name like Mighty Oak I expected a distinctive oak presence like what was claimed on the bottle, but there was hardly any to be found. What I liked most about this beer was the appearance and mouthfeel, they were both pretty good. What I liked least about this beer was the blandness of the aroma and taste and the lack of oak flavor in this beer, it just didn't meet my expectations. This beer did have some good drinkability, the smoothness and lighter flavors made this beer go down quickly but it just didn't have enough flavor to hold my attention. I would recommend this as a starter beer for someone wanting to get into oaked beers but if you have a some experience with oaked ales you may find this beer underwhelming like I did. Samuel Adams can make some solid beers but this one fell short when it came to the aroma and flavor and with a name like Mighty Oak I expected a pretty big Oak presence and that is not what I got, better luck next time Samuel Adams.

Pours a clear amber color, not much head nor lacing.

Smell has an odd oaky aroma mix with fruit and a sweet malt backing, something is just really odd or off, possibly the vanilla which I don't think works too well and makes the hop aroma smell stale.

Taste is a mix of sweet malt and fruity flavors, picking up a blend of oak and vanilla, carbonation gives it a nice crisp feeling and is refreshing, still, the combination of everything just doesn't seem to work together, some aspects playing tug of war with no one winning in the end.

The beer pours a hazy brownish color with a small off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and toasted malt, with a little bit of oak and some lighter fruit notes mixed in. The flavor is more the same, with a small amount of oak, which is almost completely masked by the toffee and caramel malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a 12-oz bottle into my stupendous Medieval Manor pilsner glass, because I am a rebel and... wait, that's acceptable? Alright.

A: Generally clear reddish amber with infinitesimal haze and 1 finger of beige head. Lacing came in the form of little acorns across the sides of the glass.

S: Eh. Musty wood pulp or cardboard right out of the fridge. Floral/herbal notes run in at the last second and apologize.

T: Sweet floral characteristics saturate the foreground. I have to admit that I wasn't quite sure what to make of this one so I read a few reviews. I'm seeing people mention cherry and vanilla? Didn't seem to have any of that to my tongue. Earthy herbal tones in the middle lead down to a stem of biscuity bread malts. Well balanced between the hops and malt.

M: Smooth and silently prickly. Like a caterpillar fell off a branch into your glass, brushed against your tongue on the way down and was gone.

O: Wait, did a caterpillar really fall in my beer? Presumably no. Not something that you'll slosh out into a red cup and play beer pong with, this is interesting but nothing special.

Pours a crystal clear copper color with a short dense off white head that settled into a sparse cap.

The aroma is quite malty sweet. Notes of toffee and caramel dominate the profile. There is a candied raisin scent as well as a good shot of vanilla. Not much wood notes from the oak.

The taste is of an amber base with some lemony tea flavors. Again big toffee, caramel, and vanilla sweetness. Vanilla almost tastes artifical, cloying. A bit of a grassy hop.

Moderate body with tingly carbonation. Sweet on the palate but does dry towards the finish.

Really no personality to this beer. A bit too sweet and no noticable oak flavor.

A- Pours a nice toasted red liquid with a bit of orange around the edges. The liquid is extraordinarily clear with an off-white head sitting atop.

S- Light fruit, white bread, and a very apparent Sam Adams-ness. There is also a bit of oak in there as well, but I probably wouldn't have picked up on it if it wasn't called Mighty Oak Ale.

T- Fruity and bready with some more apparent oak than I picked up in the nose. Sweet and tasty.

M- Light a bubbly with a light lingering bitterness and oakiness.

O- I can appreciate the effort to put a new spin on the style, but it doesn't do a lot for me. Not bad by any means, just not something I would seek out.

Mighty Oak has a clear brown body with a finger of head that has OK retention and leaves a spot or two of lacing on my glass.

The aroma of Might Oak has some nutty and caramel malt character, a dash of hops and some oak to it.

Mighty Oak tastes like a decent red ale (or brownish red) aged on oak staves for a while, which I'm guessing is basically what it is supposed to be. Brown malt leads things off, with both nutty and caramel flavors. A little bit of toasted malt is in there as well. Just a touch of noble hops lend some bitterness as well as earthy and grass flavors. The oak is woody and a bit spicy, and probably a little weaker in flavor than the malts. The flavor profile overall is not especially potent, in fact, but it is enjoyable enough.

Not a bad mouthfeel, but a little thin feeling. Maybe I have just been conditioned to expect big mouthfeel to go along with wood flavors though.

Mighty Oak isn't a bad beer at all, and although the the malt and wood profiles are both noticeable, neither is especially powerful. I like this beer because it is the type of thing I ran into at a party and was able to enjoy, and hopefully it will introduce casual beer drinkers to wood-aged beers. Also, it's nice to taste barrel-characteristics and hops in the same beer, which is rare. Even rarer, however, is that Mighty Oak doesn't need to be boozy to pull this off.

Coppery amber in color, clear, one finger head with decent lacing.

Slightly oaky in smell, malty, also with a slightly metallic note.

Taste is pleasantly malty, with notes of vanilla and oak, little hops.

Body is somewhat thin but amply carbonated.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: nice amber-brown hue with total clarity and a moderate effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of frothy tan foam. I like the look.

Smell: sweet caramel malt aroma; bordering on too-sweet. I like it well enough, but it is rather one-note.

Taste: flavor is just as sweet as the aroma, if not sweeter, with the same caramel character. Hop character is a bit vegetal and bitterness is medium to high for the style. This beer isn't terrible, but the flavors just don't seem to gel very well.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and nice creaminess. I'd say this beer's high point.

Overall: this beer isn't objectively bad, it's simply really not to my taste. Overly sweet caramel segues into dryish bitterness without segueing through tasty. Eh.

Here is another Sam Adams I had high hopes for as I love the flavor imparted on beers, wines and other beverages by aging in oak. Anytime I see a beer referencing Oak Aging I have to try it.

That said I am a bit disappointed in this one.

Bet let's start this out right:

The beer pours a with a very pleasant dark tan color that is topped with a rich creamy head that settles slowly and leaves almost no lacing at all on the glass. However, as you drink and tilt the glass back and forth there is perfectly good lacing.

The nose is sweet malt with little to no hops that I could detect; The first disappointment.

The beer tastes is slightly above average with the oak flavors being extremely subtle leaving me to believe they are using chips instead of barrels. I was hoping for more. The flavor is dominated by malt that is less than dry but not fruity. There is an extremely subtle hint of savory flavoring that is peasant and the finish is very mild hops that leave almost no bitterness in the after taste. The beer is certainly drinkable but will not be on my list to repurchase as there are others that are much better for the money.

The mouthfeel is watery and the carbonation is below par and less than I like to have; the second disappointment.

Overall a drinkable beer but definitely not on my rebuy list.
