Draft. Pours a reddish amber color with a white head that laces around the glass. Nice sweet smell aroma mixed with some grain notes. Almost a sweet start that reminded me of fruit that then transitions to a fairly hoppy taste. Ends with a very smooth sweetness almost like sweet tea but i guess that could be the caramel as well. Very nice medium mouthfeel. A good autumn beer that I would enjoy in any season.

Also known as Fall N'Oats

Pours 1/2 finger of khaki head. Color is a copper amber.

Aroma: Caramel malts, earthy hops show a bit, light oat here.

Taste: More caramel malts here, but the oats show a lot more. The hops seem to be German or noble. Very grassy.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and refreshing, a bit creamy. Medium bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. TH nailed the mf on this one.

Overall, this is a very well done amber. I can't believe I found an amber that I actually wanted to drink more of. Very drinkable. I was really impressed.

O.A. says the cap on the growler. Oat Amber. When you visit the pub, it's called Fall'n Oats, because it's fall, and there's oats, and Rachel thought she had a better name than Hoops. And, she likes Hall & Oats?

Copper-y bronze coloration, slim beige head.

Soft, slightly sweet aromatics. Caramel malt meets oatmeal. Fruity esters and vibrant hops.

Taste: sweet and bitter at play, malt sweetness with silky oats, smooth and easy on the palate. An amber ale with oatmeal, dang it, it works. Yum.

Ridiculous drinkability.
