Our Oatmeal Brown Ale is inspired by the seldom thrown Eephus – a risky and unexpected high-arcing pitch that catches the batter off-guard. This American Brown Ale finds its sweet spot with aromas of roasted malts, toasted nuts, a touch of bitterness, and a surprisingly creamy, smooth taste.

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.

On tap at Spirits. Nice roasty chocolate notes on this one. Bitter finish, but very balanced and sessionable. Above average brown ale.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2331) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
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.

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.

kevinsenn (1136) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
On tap at the Bent Elbow. Clear brown. Nutty toasty aroma with some vanilla. Dry somewhat metallic taste, bready, and light dark fruit notes.

Bendrixian (1166) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
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.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
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!
