draught. Dark earthy brown with tan head. Caramel and nutty malts, roasted, brown sugar. Body was a little thin considering the oats. Still, pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at beer bistro. Oats, lemon & candied brown sugar in the nose on a dark reddish-amber brown with a minimal beige head. Medium to full bodied. Roasted oats, a bit nutty caramel, coffee grinds, but too much lemony hops. Solid but it doesn’t come together for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 mL sample bottle. Pours deep mahogany with a thin cap of off white head. Rich aromas of raisin, caramel malt, fresh fig and a hint of cocoa and woody hop. Mildly sweet with a rounding bitterness and light roast. Smooth and creamy texture, moderate body and carbonation. A stellar brown ale, really does it for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Clearish brown colour and well laced with a very fine bubbled head. aroma is tight with classic notes of roast, nuts, oats and caramel. Similar classically styled palate with bitter roasty notes, medium body, watery mid palate and a light & fast but slightly hoppy/bitter finish. Boring beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap@ the bent elbow - Poued a rich brown color with a tan cap - good lacing - aroma is light but there is some nutty maltiness and light sweetness. Flavour is fairly well balanced with some nice bittering hops balancing some toasty-nutty malts, rich mouth feel (from the oatmeal)- goes to a clean lightly dry finish - OK

If you are a fan of a ’darker’ beer, seek out Left Field Brewery’s Eephus Oatmeal Brown Ale. Very good. Moved me from my normal ’Black and Tan’ to Eephus. Try it. You’ll like it!
