Three Heads Loopy Oatmeal Red Ale

type: red ale
origin: Honeoye Falls (Rochester), NY
price: $5.50/16oz at Tap and Mallet
ABV: 6.5%
NSP: 5.6

This is definitely a red ale in the sense that it's dry (not overly sweet) and bitter, with some kick from the alcohol.  The great thing about, though, it is the smoothness imparted by the addition of oats in the mash.  So this ends up being a pretty unique and wonderful beer.  Sometimes creative-sounding beers can end up tasting like shit, but this is a testament to good brewing practices.  It's delicious, and unique, so I'll probably keep an eye out for 3HB in the future.  Hopefully I won't confuse it with those power-ballad monsters 3EB.
