Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that had great retention, eventually reducing to a thick film with a medium collar which created some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a cereal malt, citrus and floral hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit peel), caramel, oats and a mild fruity ester (peaches).
The taste was mildly sweet and a tad bitter with a mild fruity sweetness and a hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy and rather creamy (due to the oats, I’m sure) with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor stuck around for an extremely long time with a strong bitter citrus taste that laid on the taste buds for what seemed like forever.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and had a nice creamy dry texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a very tasty, quite drinkable creamy brew with a mild ABV. This is a great session brew with a nice bold bitterness...

Hazy straw color with a small white head. Not overly hoppy, good malt backbone. Earthy. Oatmeal gives this an interesting character. Mellow mouthfeel, goes down real smooth.

"oatmeal lends a uniquely grainy aroma and a distinct feel. flavor starts out average but has a really pleasant back end bitterness, and hints of fruitiness, that make this a bit of a standout, and definitely unique."
