Trying this a few hours after a Dark Horse OS. Different but similar. I've seen this in the aisles for the longest time and just got around to purchasing a sixer.
A: Dark brown with a ruby hue. Head dissipates quickly to a persistant slight layer; no internal ringing lacing occurs - foam comes off clean.
S: Very suble oats (malt?) - not much there.
T: Subtle oats with a muted bitterness in the finish.
M: Low to medium fullness; a little watery but smooth. Light carbonation throughout.
O: Subtlety is key here. It's well blended with no rough edges. A solid pick for the style. Maybe I'm a little jaded, or my expectation was higher, but I feel like something is missing from this craft. Nevertheless, its still a smooth and solid OS just without any frills.
