3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at McFaddens beer fest. Pours a nice amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet with some caramel. The flavor has the typical Red aspect but is enhanced with a nice hop presence. Finishes very dry and refreshing.

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling. Pours with an orange tinge. Small head small lacing. Big leafy hops on the nose. Very bitter and one note on the tongue. Not getting much evidence of oatmeal on the tongue or with mouthfeel. Eh!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. Artwork is very typical for upstate New York. Nice copper colour with a small head. Some drowsiness to the hopping, which seems otherwise American. The flavour is quite mild, with very little malt presence to go with the hops. I’d expect the oatmeal to add a little more to the body. Nice bitterness. Okay amber.

March 2013 from bottle. My first beer from this brewer and not disappointing at all. Amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with spice, fruit and malt. Good hop balance and a smooth finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a goblet. Pourss a ruddy amber with a slight off white head that leaves medium lacing. Very strange aroma that is sweet and grassy. The oatmeal is really present here, all around, and it works great. Smooth mouthfeel with big grassy, bitter hop character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, light pine, grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Caramel and hops in the flavor. A bit more bitter than amber ales, but not a big hop display that’s promised.
