Out of the can. Smooth, relatively crisp nice subtle flavors with hop, grass and grains, and mainly the oatmeal does come through nicely in this very drinkable can of beer.
I'd seek this again, especially as a session brew. Well done, by this local brewery.

Your usual Pale Ale, nothing more and nothing less, though I am aware of the oats that add a little bit of caramel but not much else.

Pours a usual amber with 1.5 fingers of foamy head that leaves some sticky lacing. A little bit of haze owing to the unfiltered nature of the beer.

Smell is pretty grassy and hop forward though it shows its malty body in the sweet bread.

Taste is pretty 50/50 though it would be nice if one or the other, hops or malt, did something to boost the other.

Mouthfeel is a little heavy and finishes with some nice fruity twang from the hops.

A pretty standard affair that sets itself apart by showing the quality of ingredients and craftsmanship. Are there better beers? Of course. But, it is hard to go wrong with this standard ale as an old standby.

To good health and good beer.

3.5/5  rDev -4.4%

Visual: Yellowish-orange. It had the same color of dehydrated piss, but this was far from the flavor of the beer...

Scent: To be straight forward, it smelled like malt liquor and tin can. But I'm sure the tin can smell would disperse if poured in a glass.

Flavor: The initial taste began with the familiar perfume-like taste of hops, and finished with a more mellow oatmeal taste. I feel like the oatmeal aftertaste limited the refreshing factor of the beer.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and lightly carbonated. It was easy going down.

Overall: It should be noted that this is an OATMEAL PALE ALE. I drank this beer out of the can due to the lack of availability of bottled Deep Ellum beverages, and due to the fact that I could care less about drinking out of a goblet. Out of the three Deep Ellum beers I have tasted so far (Deep Ellum IPA, Deep Ellum Dreamcrusher IPA, and Deep Ellum Pale Ale), this one comes in second place behind the Deep Ellum IPA.

Pours a orange amber with a huge expanding soapy head. Smell is malty and sweet with slight hint of floralness. Taste is toasty and sweet with little bitterness and an easy drinking body. Little lingering after taste. Overall a sweet toasty pale ale, worth a try.
