The idea for this first-time seasonal, as well as its brewhouse implementation, was the work of two of our talented young brewers. Oatmeal traditionally has been used in ale brewing to create a silky texture and more prominently smooth character. This is precisely the effect achieved here in this English-style Brown Ale. A pleasant underbelly of fruitiness (perhaps from late additions of Fuggle hops) contributes an extra and pleasing layer of complexity. Our young brewing bucks are learning their lessons well!

Was well drunk when tried, but notes say smooth, nutty, well balanced. I remember it being somewhat sour though and not so balanced. Though I don’t trust my memory on this one.
