Maple Oat Ale

12 oz single from Hop City a few weeks ago.
Pour is a hazy, honey colored amber with a fluffy white head and some persistent lace.
Aroma is pretty sweet with plenty of maple syrup notes, some more honey and brown sugar.
All of these aroma characters come together in the taste to produce a real, sugar sweet, malt bomb. Finish offers a little hop bite, but it’s generally lost amongst the sweetness. Aftertaste lingers a little.
Mouthfeel is pretty rich and reflects the sugar nature of the beer. Quite full and a little viscous.
Very tasty with the honey like elements but you’re going to need to enjoy a sweet beer to make much sense of this.
