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.

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!

Metalchopz (3203) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2016
Pours a dark brown colour, not black though, with ruby-copper highlights. Big creamy light-beige head, great retention and foamy-creamy lace. Beautiful sweeter aromas with the oatmeal, over the roasted malts and hints of chocolate. The taste has less sweetness, with the hop creating some nice bitterness in the finish. Toasted malts and caramel ones to give the brown ale side. A very nice brew and great idea to have the oatmeal with a brown ale, instead of the typical stout.

bunget (885) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle. Clear cola body, big velvety, rich mocha head with excellent retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts, caramel malt, dusty cereals and molasses. Taste is a bit overwhelmed unexpectedly by grassy hops, burned caramel, licorice and burned roasted nuts. Unusual.

It pours almost opaque mahogany with black tinges; the head is beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: burnt toast, toffee, coffee, hazelnut skins, and cereal. The taste is medium bitter. The palate is medium bodied; has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, its not very complex, or interesting.
