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.

I was eager to taste an oatmeal beer with a baseball edge. A bit disappointing but worth trying.

Bottled, from LCBO, Ottawa. Dark brown, rich firm head. Caramel, cookies and pears up front. Mid sweet with solid body and well rounded mouthfeel. Citrus, pear and cookies, notes of licorice. Long bitter finish with lingering lime. Really solid brown ale, dense and packed with flavours, yet remaining edgeless.

bomber. Poured ruby-brown with a thinning tan head. Heavily roasted malt aroma. Full bodied, active carbonation, resiny finish. Flavour of chocolate malt, notes of coffee, smoke, an earthy nuttiness, herbal hops with a bitter astringency.

Bottle from the brewery. Ive had and enjoyed this beer numerous times, starting with its early days being brewed under contract at Grand River, but have never got around to rating it before now. Like any good brown ale, its deceptively simple, but with some nice complexity below the surface. The aroma and flavour are both malt-forward, with notes of toasted oats, coffee, and cocoa, before sliding into a pleasant hop-driven finish (most prominent in the flavour) with pine, grass and orange zest all playing a part. Great mouthfeel as well, with a nice creaminess on the palate. Always a treat.

650 ml bottle. Deep dark reddish brown colour, thick off-white head. Sweetish aroma of toasted malt, with notes of cocoa and nuts. The flavour is malty, with a note of caramel sweetness, some cocoa and coffee, and a dry, bitter finish. Very nice.

GlennHendry (392) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Roasted coffee and a little nuttiness in the aroma, though its muted a bit. More roasted coffee flavours on the tongue, with bitter chocolate, cocoa and a touch os sweet malt. Smooth and delicious.

Quevillon (3024) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
650 ml bottle purchase at the LCBO at Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on January 3, 2017. Dark brown, small head. Raw oatmeal malt aroma, some notes of sweet cereal. The taste is about the same, but drier, herb bitterness. Quite raw for its style!
