3/5  rDev -15%

Clear and amber colored. Fruit and an otherwise clean malt note in the aroma. Tastes only lightly malty, good fruitiness and slight hints of darker malts.

The mouthfeel is rather thin and watery. Can't say it was bad but nothing was remarkable about it. A solid C beer.

3.3/5  rDev -6.5%

Poured from tap into a pint glass

A- One finger tan head dissipates to a nice ring around the glass, dark blood red color, very clear.
S- Sweet caramel, dark fruits, oats are present, slight roastiness.
T- Roasted malts, caramel, slight toffee presence, pretty sweet, almost candy like, oats, very similar to what you smell.
M- Light to medium mouthfeel, well carbonated.
O- Decent brew, nothing too amazing or unique, glad I was able to try it once, but would not order again.

3.33/5  rDev -5.7%

Pours 1 finger of beige head. Good retention. Color is an amber copper.

Aroma: Oats, chocolate, caramel. Fairly sweet and malty. Grainy.

Taste: More sweet flavors. A lot of caramel with some chocolate. Oats. Candy like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, a decent beer, but a bit too sweet for me. Its not syrupy sweet, but malty sweet.

Pours a chestnut brown color with reddish hues. Nose is composed of sweet smelling oat malts with some caramel malt thrown in the mix. Taste is true to the nose, there is nothing more to really add to the nose aromatic notes. Goes down with a medium body and lots of carbonation. Pretty decent and seems sessionable.

Draft. Poured into a pint glass a clear, dark copper red color with a 1 finger light tan head. Sweet caramel and light chocolate in the nose. Some roast as well. Starts with a sweet caramel and toffee flavor that builds up to a roasty dark chocolate flavor. Some dark fruit notes. Medium mouthfeel. The abv doesn’t show at all. Some lace. Lingering bitterness.

Crimson Oat, Town Hall Brewery…guess what, it's red and there's oat in it. Let's look at it.

Dusky red look on it, nice cocoa head, slimmish.

Aroma: mild, hoppy, herbal, malty…yeah, that's a red ale, a bit hopper than you'd think, but mmm, mmm.

Taste: caramel malt, mild hops, some richness, some redness, definitive hoppitude.
Drink…CONSUMAble and delicious. mmmm. Smooth, oatmeal-enriched body, plenty of spark.

Not too much to tell, just another one of many excellent, and just a little experimental, ales pumped out of Town Hall and their talented brewers.
