2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
TAP NY 08. Amber in color with a medium to large off white head. Aroma: some toasted malts and light fruity esters, a trace of spicy hops. Taste is toasted malts, some caramel, quite light bodied but does have some mild oatmeal slickness. Some light notes of dark fruit and floral hops, carbonation quite active. light hop bitterness in the finish. This was alright, pretty clean.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the Lake Grove location. Dark amber beer, with a thin off-white head. Aroma is lightly toasty with hints of caramel malt. Flavour is mostly malty. Some herbal hoppiness and the oatmeal does make an appearance, mostly as counteracting the otherwise overly fizzy carbonation. OK, but one of the weaker brews they have to offer.

On tap at the Manchester, CT location. Very faint, caramelly aroma with some metallic aromas as well. Lacklustre aroma without much distinction. Murkey, hazy amber color with an off-yellowish head that is really small. Pretty sweet, sugary, malty start which is followed by some metallic oat flavors. More sugary sweetness follows with some unexpected booziness as well. Hops are not detected. Interesting attempt, but this doesnít really work for me.

Springfield, PA - Oatmeal Amber poured flat, iced tea appearance, some malt aroma. Very little oatmeal flavor. Itís the type of beer a homebrewer may attempt. Nothing earth shattering, but I had to give it a try.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Manchester, CT. Arrive looking deep amber, with absolutely no head. Not even lacing. Oily glass? The aroma is nearly undetectable in the bar. I think I need a nasal upgrade. Mild malt with a little bit of sugary sweetness. Flavor is smooth and mild. Very little bitterness, although containing a rich sweetness for such a light bodied beer. Pretty tasty, and the oats impart an interesting sweetness that's not at all unpleasant. Carbonation was a little too intense for me, but I just finished a hand pulled beer, so what do I know.

this was a cask-conditioned seasonal brew.
very flat even for a cask ale.
malty but in a cloyingly sweet manner. I think that the additional oatmeal resulted in the starch sugars overpowering the hops in the original amber ale.
An intersting expeiment , maybe the next batch will be more balanced.
