New Holland Oak Aged Hatter

I picked up a bottle of New Holland Oak Aged Hatter from Brass Rail in Campbelltown. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head that leaves a hint of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel, lemon, grapefruit, oak, and pepper. The taste is dry and oaky with plenty of caramel on the front end with some lemon and grapefruit. The alcohol content is 5.1% ABV. I would say that the oak aging definitely killed off the dry and hoppiness of this beer, for the better or worse. While it was a good beer, The Mad Hatter on its own was much better.
