I have not found a lot of information about this. Only a post from Austin's Beer Week saying it is a session English Brown Porter. This is a growler purchased from Premium Draught in Houston.

A: Pours a dark brown color. A two finger, dense Khaki head forms with good retention and sticky spiderweb lace left behind.
S: Roasted malt, toast, baked bread. Really biscuit like in the nose. Simple, but enjoyable.
T: Roasted malt up front. That baked bread and biscuit character again, along with bitter chocolate in the finish. Like the nose which is simple and enjoyable.
M/D: A medium body that is well carbonated. Crisp and smooth at the same time. Really easy and enjoyable to drink. The growler will be gone in no time.

This reminds me of the Saint Arnold's Icon Blue Brown Porter. Which is to say, I enjoy it and will be looking for this some more often. It fits with the other Oasis offerings I have had. Simple, and nothing fancy. Certainly nothing that will garner a lot of attention on this site. Still, really enjoyable.
