Left Field Eephus Oatmeal Brown AleLeft Field Eephus Oatmeal Brown Ale
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Left Field Brewery
Ontario, Canada
leftfieldbrewery.ca

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Oatmeal Brown Ale is inspired by the seldom thrown Eephus – a risky and unexpected high-arcing pitch that catches the batter off-guard. This American Brown Ale finds its sweet spot with dark, dried fruit aromas, a touch of bitterness and spicy woodiness, and a surprisingly creamy smooth taste.

A good start to this brewery with this offering, had on tap at Bar Volo. brown coloured, an above average mouthfeel.The oatmeal and malt bill is consistent with a Samuel Smith. This is not the more edgy St. Ambroise, nor a hoppy American brown. Good drinkablity.

Purchased at the LCBO for around that $3.00 mark or so. Served at 7deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high light brown head that lasts for nearly 5mins before film out. Very dark brown colour and filtered clear.

S- Nice malt but has a touch of metallic scent to it.

T- Nice light roasted malt flavor. Nothing sticks out at you and it's a balanced brew. The oats are lost other than at touch of the expected bitterness

M- Bit creamy and dry at the end. Expected from this style.

O- Pleasurable brew. Nothing great but nothing offensive. Have a few for later as I do like oatmeal stouts. Wish I could find one with that thickness I crave.

Food Pairing

This nice little brew went well with........ Grilled cheese sandwiches stuffed with onions, tomatoes and butter on top the bread that crisps up nice and brown.

Enjoy

Beer is dark brown with a good sized beige head. Good retention.

Nose is fairly simple; malty sweetness. A bit faint.

Taste is malty, well balanced but on the sweet side. Slight coffee flavour. Nutty.

Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, good. A nice, easy drinking and enjoyable beer.

My first chance to taste something from this brewery. Pours darkbrown. I taste a little bit of smokiness, and this beer reminds me a lot of Wellington County Dark. I hope I can sample something else from Left Field soon.
