Pretty good brew...tons of fruity esters in aroma...but ok with me. Citrus hops, and great mouthfeel, maybe to do with the Oats...really liked this

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper color with a dark red hue. Aromas apricot, slight peach, medium pine and mild caramel. Flavors medium caramel, light pine, light citrus, apricot, slight peach. Medium sweet and bitter. A decent pale but the oatmeal only seems to give an expected body with nothing to over the top or distinguishing other than the name implies.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly clear light amber coloured body with an orange glow at the bottom and a decent light brown glow at top - odd. Aroma of pungent earthy and perfumey hops with a large oatmeal and malt nose. Medium-bodied; Deep earthy and pungent malt note with a lot of bitterness and a light caramel and toffee touch. Aftertaste shows a hint of hops but largely showing a varied malt profile with oatmeal by far the strongest. Overall, an interesting and pungent beer with some good flavours and a deep backbone of oatmeal that shows well. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whip In yesterday, 05-May-2014 in Austin, Texas for US$2.50 sampled in my hotel room here in Austin, Texas on 06-May-2014.
