The idea for this first-time seasonal, as well as its brewhouse implementation, was the work of two of our talented young brewers. Oatmeal traditionally has been used in ale brewing to create a silky texture and more prominently smooth character. This is precisely the effect achieved here in this English-style Brown Ale. A pleasant underbelly of fruitiness (perhaps from late additions of Fuggle hops) contributes an extra and pleasing layer of complexity. Our young brewing bucks are learning their lessons well!
