COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Brewed on contract at Grand River Brewing prior to 2015.

probstblueribbon (3717) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown with garnet highlights and a fair light tan head. Aroma: Nutty and roasted maltiness, a little chocolate, a bit earthy, very slightly tangy/vinous, so roasted. Palate: Medium+ body with fairly full carbonation, smooth, velvety. Flav.: Nutty roasted malt, black coffee, some cereal, nice; dry with reasonable bitterness and a dark-roasted and affable finish.

Quite the Brown Ale.

Gluepot (423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
A solid nutty brown. Malt, roasted nuts, biscuit malt and nice balancing hops. Surprised the oatmeal doesn’t stretch out the taste more.

Listigovers (904) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2016
Dark pour tan head. Smells like oats and toasty malt. Taste is slightly bitter, medium bodied, soft and creamier than the taste would suggest. Nice overall beer, would please most.

Eructoblaster (3842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
Can - 473ml. Pours a dark brown body with amber glints and a thin, off-white foamy head. Good malty aroma with nutty and woody hints. Its robust malty taste carries hoppy, woody, and grainy notes. Ends with a long oaky finish. Good stuff.

Can. Subdued aroma, average carbonation. Decently hoppy brew, with slightly bitter finish. No off-flavors, but a relatively tepid offering.
