Can split with Dave at The Brick Store courtesy of arkhamresident – many thanks.
I *think* that this had the words “Oatmeal Brown Ale” on the can (whatever that is!)
Anyway, on to the beer. Disappointing lack of pop on opening the can and this turned out to be a theme running through the sampling. Rather lifeless and lacking in carbonation. Not a huge problem for the style, but it seemed so low that I began to notice it.
Simple brown pour that lacks much head at all, and doesn’t offer any lace or life.
Once you get past the somewhat shallow look, this is actually a very solid and tasty beer. Good malts support the mid-range hop bitterness and kick in to end nicely (as per the style). I like this beer becasue it does what all brown ales should – it gives a feeling of moreishness. That feeling that you get when you feel that you could just keep drinking these. Mellow, simple ABV and malt smoothness complete the picture.
Nice beer, I just wish there were more of these being produced in the USA.
