Oast House Gingerbread Porter 3.3
On tap at Against the Grain Leaside. Pours a dark brown with average-sized light tan head. Aroma is gingerbread, other Christmas spiciness, toastiness and light, sweet‎ chocolate. Flavour is fairly prominent ginger with toasty bread, cinnamon, hints of nutmeg, a bit of chocolate and even a touch of sweet fruitiness. Average body. Pleasant.

Oast House Berliner Weisse 3.7
Draught at The Craft Brasserie. Pleasant notes of lemon juice and sour apple, honey cereals, quite tart, fairly dry finish. Maybe not exactly on style but quite enjoyed this brew anyway.

Oast House Cherry Berliner 4
Cloudy ruddy-pink pour. The nose is really nice. Lots of cherry with notes of almond and deep fruit over a lactic sort of quality. The fruit really pops on the back of the palate. Tart up front but there is a soft sweetness in the back. Sort of a spicy/rich fruitiness and a bit of lingering wildness. Damn tasty.

Oast House Roasted Chesnut 3.7
[7983-20151216] Tap. Woody nut and toasted grains aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Toasted nutty grains flavour has a muted cigarette cardboard background that eliminates any funky business. Medium body. Smoked characteristic was unexpected but not unpleasant. (7/3+/8/4/15) 3.7

Oast House Kentucky Hill Sour Mash 3.5
I have been fortunate to have had Kentucky common a few times, and always done differently. I liked the colour and mouthfeel of this. Only a tad sour, like sour cherry. rather smooth.

Oast House Farmer’s Tan Summer IPA 2.7
June 14, 2013 - on draught at Thirsty & Miserable. Clear, oily-looking amber-gold with a solid creamy lasting off-white head. The aroma ... weird ... it’s popcorn and "golden topping" - ugh. Taste is ... okay - not nasty, but definite diacetyl and harshness - not too papery, but floral and grain, and mild alcohol (a generous 6-) ... thick, chewy, astringent, weakly carbonated, increasingly harsh ---- not a nice beer at all - avoid, future me!

Oast House Dunkel 3.1
A spoton dunkel, no complaints and reasonably drinkable. But a bit subpar with all of the great beer about.

Oast House Dr. Lychee Gose Nuts 3.3
Had this at the Oast House. It had added carbonation from Cask Days but was the same beer. Approachable and true to style gose, salt forward, with some flavour behind it for balance and sweetness, apparently the lychee.

Oast House Dr. Lychee Gose Nuts 3.7
Cask days 2015. Hazy yellow, small white head. Savoury wheat aroma, subtle fruit, light tartness, light hay. Lychee appears in the end with a juicy, fruity sweetness, with a light grassiness. Some solid wheat flavours, light tartness, good savoury notes. Well done.

[Draught at Bar Hop 2] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of tart lemon, a bit of metal, some grain and a hint of lactic notes. Flavour follows and is mainly tart lemon. Average bodied. A bit simple, just good.

Oast House X Momofuku Peach Ale 3.7
On tap a momofuku. Hazy orange pour, with a small white head. Aroma is all peaches, semi sweet peach nectar. Mouth feel is spot on, and the carb is good. Finish is surprisingly bitter, and astringent. Makes for an odd contrast with the super sweet peachy aroma. Overall is went well with my noodles.

Oast House Berliner Weisse 3.5
On tap at bar volo. More sour than anything. I like it. Not for everyone. Liked drinkabilty. A bit cidery, suggesting souring agents used instead of conventonial berliner style.

Tap sample at The Beer Experience in Toronto. Ooh, gingerbread on the nose, store-bought, cheap ones. The flavour continues along the same lines. Spicy first, then pumpkiny. Lightish body. Watery. Not too good.

Oast House Saison 3.1
Cloud ripe banana peel colour. Foamy, bright, white, thick head with long continuance and a hearty rim lacing. Lots of quick rising bubbles. Fresh spiced aroma with fresh grapefruit notes and a dry straw hoppiness with a barn-like overtone. Creamy approach with light citrus flavours of orange and lemon. It’s sweet malty and bitter at the start which is quelled by the carbonation then balanced by the late taste of hops. Dry mouth feel with a late aftertaste.

Oast House Cherry Berliner 3.3
Tap at Tequila Bookworm in Toronto as Oast Cherry Sour - should be the same thing. Murky brownish amber/orange with very little off-white head. The nose is fruity tart, I wouldn’t say specifically cherry-like, but close. The cherries accentuate later on. Tastes really tart, and vinegary, the cherries are there, but again, accentuate as it’s warmer. I like how the cherries are not at all yoghurty, but fresh. Overall it’s pretty syrupy sweet. Dusty dryish on the palate, but once swallowed, leaves a sticky coating in the mouth. It’s quite good - the sweetness is well integrated with the tart and vinegary character.

2015-08-21 Bouteille 750ml gracieuseté de Jeff. Un nez de caramel toffee accompagné de raisins et d'épices. En bouche, caramel, raisin et une pointe d'épice. Très sucré pour ce type de bière. Ressemble d'avantage à une Dubble qu'à une bière de garde. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oast House Konnichiwa Peaches 3.1
Peaches, peaches and more peaches. Fresh peach nectar aroma, and nothing else. Peach juice flavour and finish. Zero hefe character, and absolutely no barrel at all. This isn’t bad, but I would have bet my life it was a straight up peach fruit beer.

Oast House Cherry Berliner 3.2
2015-08-03. Hazy pink tinged amber body with a nice off white head. 3+ Aroma has strong cherry profile that feels "heavy" for lack of a better descriptor. Hints at wood and lactic sourness. Flavour is sweet up front and then turns quite tart and sour. Sweet cherry notes with lightly grainy undertones. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just okay. On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto, ON.

Oast House Cherry Berliner 2.9
One of the best things about this here Ratebeer thing-a-mah-jing is the fellow drunkards & beer geeks I’ve met up with to have a session with. Ordered this at The Only Cafe during the Ontario Meets Quebec session with ratebeer guzzler Hippyhop. Wasn’t long before Hippyhop purloined a few sips from my glass. Well, he can have it, cuz this isn’t my favourite pour of the night. Tastes like dusty orange fizz. I’m full of regret for ordering it.

Oast House Cherry Berliner 3.2
Rating based on a couple of drunken, stolen sips so please don’t hate me Oast House. Pour is sort of rust-coloured. Nose is sour wheat and fruit, but there’s that bloody nail polish remover to haunt my nostrils. Cherries don’t come through nearly enough for my liking (in fairness I just worked my way through a 4-pack of DDC’s Solstice d’Ete, which is a cherry bomb). Taste is definitely better than the nose. And I hate sounding so negative, because this stuff really isn’t bad, it’s just far from the best Berliner I’ve had this summer.
