Samuel Adams Mighty Oak Ale

Samuel Adams Mighty Oak Ale

This Amber is brewed by the Boston Beer Company also known as the Samuel Adams Brewery located in Boston MA, and it has a 5.7% ABV.

This beer poured a gorgeous ruby red color in the glass however the head did not retain and left minimal lacing. I found the aroma to contain caramel malts, oak, but the vanilla tones take over. The taste of this beer was sweet as it hinted at the caramel and vanilla that was found in the aroma. The oak taste showed up in the finish while creating a nice balance within this beer. I also thought that the Mighty Oak Ale had medium body, and a very smooth mouthfeel.

I would recommend this beer because it does have a full flavor and nice mouthfeel. It seems like the tastes are all right there but I think the Vanilla overtakes the beer.

Cheers!
