The label for these was really similar to the oatmeal stout, except that was green. Pour was amber and copper in color, requisite 1/2" head, white. Aroma of grain and noble hops?

Taste, good stuff, toasted pale malt, bittering hops. Moderate bitterness. Mild pine and bread feel to it. Even a mild nutty feel. No yeast impact, this seems like a clean American version. I think its a decent esb interpretation through the American looking glass. Plenty of carbonation.
