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.

Tap at Bar Hop, 12th July 17. Pours light brown. Aroma is roasty, malt, caramel. Taste is a hoppy brown ale, light mouth feel. Solid.

650ml bottle from lcbo. Aroma sweet malt, toast and hint of roast. nice white head that dissapates but leaves a nice lacing on the glass, dark ruby brown when held up to the light. starts with toast up front followed by nice malty middle and roasty finish. hops balance out the sweet malt nicely. nice creamy texture, semi-sweet finish. Fantastic brown ale, everything you could ever want in the style.

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.

Y’all can from the lcbo - Brown burgundy poor, sweet malt, notes of caramel and toffee - great beer

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. I’ve 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, it’s 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.
