Review from notes taken 12 23 12. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle that was given to me by my brother Pete. Thanks for the opportunity! Poured into a clean, clear pint glass.

A Translucent dark yellow body under and all too brief head. 2.5

S Disappointingly for me, little to no "oak" detected in the smell. I have had oak aged beers before and they have intrigued me. Perhaps I was led by the title of the beer to expect some sense of oak in the smell/flavor and that was my fault but none-the-less I find myself disappointed. In fact, the smell was of a distant barley malt and it was not easy to detect that. 2.0

T Unfortunately again, the taste carried right from the smell in a forgettable, thin tasting amber. There was barley malt and the slightest hops that I could taste. This would probably be a good session beer if it was not so boring to the point of distraction. 2.0

M To thin for me. I need something with more depth any more. 2.0

D/O Drinkability again would have been high but it is too boring. Overall this is not a good beer. 2.0

Notes: My impression went from "Oh, cool, something called 'Mighty Oak'" to "Damn, this beer is really boring and I don't think that I will ever look for it again."
