Oast House Biere de Garde
Malt, insane malt. Uncomfortable malt. This is not a farmhouse. Dark, sweet... No funk, not farmhouse flavour. Weird. Poured out.

Oast House Apple Ginger Ale
[9724-20171020] Cask. Apple pie and fresh gingery basil aroma, like an apple that has been infused with cinnamon. Hazy, chocolate brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Apple pie and cooked apple covered in cinnamon flavour has a hint of basil. Medium body. Good. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8

Oast House Local Hoption
(On tap at The Poacher in Burlington, Ontario.) I don't like the terms "wet hopped" and "dry hopped" that the beer industry has settled on. Local Hoption uses fresh (non-dried), i.e., "wet", hops as an *ingredient*, It also has the character of a "dry hopped" beer (which just means that hops—either fresh or dried—have been added after the fermentation *process*). It's possible this beer is both wet hopped and dry hopped (or, in my own, less-ambiguous, terms, "late hopped using fresh hops") but I don't actually know what process was used. It has some of the grapefruit taste I would normally associate with citra hops, but before it has that normal assertive flavour, all taste "dies" on your tongue, leaving you without a lasting aftertaste. It's crisp and clean overall, with a bitterness that threatens but fades away before delivering. I like it, but wish it were more successful. It hasn't quite made up its mind what it wants to be. Nonetheless, I would happily enjoy many pints of this.

Oast House Konnichiwa Peaches
September 2, 2014 - at Bar Hop - on draught. Hazy gold with a small off-white head. Smells like sweet peach and alcohol, hint of wildflower. Tastes like a heavy saison with peaches - not all that spicy - ehh; fruity as hell, too sweet. Slick, sticky/syrupy mouthfeel - watery and still, finishes quick and ... yeah, whatever.

Oast House Grandma's Strawberry Rhubarb
July 25, 2014 - at Bar Hop - on draught. Murky orange-gold with a smallish off-white head - visible protein stringing too. Aroma is rhubarb, then strawberry - a bit of vanilla and cream - smells like a fruit dessert offering; more sweet than tart; biscuity. Taste is fruity - a bit sugary - but the nice biscuit fails to appear, and there’s a hint of paper ... Light body and acidity, mild carbonation - fruit up front, seedy/papery slightly unpleasant aftertaste.

Oast House Hay Day
May 28, 2014 - at Bar Hop on draught. Very hazy pale gold with an average bubbly beige head. Smells like a Belgian IPA - candi sweetness, spicy fruit malt, somewhat grassy; a little odd ambiguous tang of some sort detracted though. Taste follows - has that quad yeast "sweaty" pungency which doesn’t really belong in an IPA - increasing papery bitterness, a bit boozy, and almost harshly bitter. Average body, airy, increasing harshness in the finish - unpleasant aftertaste.

Oast House Bessie Brown
March 13, 2014 - at Bar Hop, on draught. Thin black, minimal tan head. Herbal bitter aroma with light rope, plenty of dark chocolate milk and tons of acidic coffee ground. Taste is mostly chocolate, just slightly grassy bitter, and very little rope/peat too - mild alcohol - quite like this flavour (8-). Still, bitter, finishes quickly with a gritty mineral chocolate aftertaste; nice sweet/bitter balance to it, not over the top in any way.

Oast House Sochi
February 26, 2014 - at Bar Hop, on draught. Odd idea, but here goes. Black, decent creamy tan head. Smells a bit boozy and port-like - nutty malt, but tart fruit - stewed prune or ... well, rosso port, really - alcohol; a little musty. Taste is initially musty oak tannin and booze, but emerging fruit, red wine, but very tart, almost oxidized - very little stout or beer character to this one - a little carbonized (barely a 7-). Average body, slick, still, increasing boozy bitterness in the finish - too much barrel here, and sourness. I suspect it would pair nicely with flourless chocolate cake or a good semi-sweet chocolate mousse with a cherry coulis.

Oast House X Bar Hop Belgian Pumpkin Massacre
November 1, 2013 - at Bar Hop - on draught. Ruby-black, no head. Aroma of a mild black IPA with light molasses and some pumpkin spice. Taste waste a huge surprise - major pumpkin, roast, and not reliant on spices alone, with lush low-level pine bitterness ... and weirdly, apple! Slick, light body, decent carbonation.

Oast House Jesse Dunkel
September 18, 2013 - Golden Tap Awards - draught. Looks fantastic; deep clear burnt copper with a smallish frothy tan head. Aroma of toasted cereal malt - quite grainy, a little cocoa and herbal bitterness. Taste follows, hint of diacetyl. Watery, still, quick finish, off-putting heavy grain aftertaste.

Oast House Dr. Tobias Funke
September 14, 2013 - Zwanze Day at Bar Volo - on draught. Yay! I get this one up to 10 ratings! And extra points for that name - well done. Opaque black with a small bubbly beige diminishing head. Smells like a light dry porter - not much alcohol, extra bugginess ... mostly just grainy with medium roast. Taste - 3/4 standard lemony berliner weiss and 1/4 standard light dry porter. Average body, slick, solid carbonation, somewhat building acidity, quick finish with more somewhat nutty dry roast in the linger. Nice. (3.2 : .2 extra for the name!)

750ml bottle with cork and cage. Thanks to my friend Rob for the share. Pours a nice thick foamy white head that dissipates to a thin coating.  Has a slightly cloudy golden orangey appearance. Aromas of wheats and yeast. Flavours are citrus, resin hops, notes of Belgian yeast, hints of spices. Good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Somewhat of a tarty moutheel. Pretty good.

Oast House Heritage Wheat
August 2, 2013 - on draught at Bar Hop. Pale clear yellow pour, small white head. Aroma is very floral, definite lavender there, but more cardamom than I care for (don’t like soap in my food/beer) - probably a little on the sweet side, but who can tell? Taste follows, sweetness comes through more, but also something unpleasant - enough to hide a lot of that 8.8% ... again, too floral and spicy. Average body, a bit boozy, quite astringent - and all that lingers way too long on the palate; I would hate a hangover from this stuff.

Pretty intense even for impy. Has some light char in flavor and smell but not overpowering. Definite wine note, oaky, full but not creamy until the finish. Long, a warming alcohol in the end. Quite tasty, leaves my lips sticky.

Oast House Ol' Farmer Brown's Dark'Ass Ale
[Bottle (750ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a very dark brown with a huge foamy tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is dusty, a bit toasty and yeasty along with dark malt, eggshells and very light hops. Flavour is malty, yeasty and a bit metallic along with very light hops -- tastes old. Average bodied. Just O.K.
