Designed as a flavorful session beer, Oarsman Ale uses a classic German brewing technique to impart a light, refreshing tartness. Oarsman Ale grew out of a desire to explore the tradition of session beers, trading intensity for finesse while still creating a worthwhile experience for the taster. The grain bill includes a healthy portion of wheat, while light hopping lend citrus & herbal notes to the aroma. Fermented with Bell’s house ale yeast, Oarsman comes in at 4.0% alcohol by volume. Rather than being the dominant flavor note, the tartness in Oarsman takes on more of a palate-cleansing role, making it perfect with meals or purely on its own.

12 oz can. Pours a cloudy straw colored yellow. Thin white head. Taste slightly tart with apple or pear undertones. Nothing special. Could be nice and refreshing on a hot day, but there are probably better options.

badwhale (419) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a crisp yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Once again, Westy’s strikes with a 2yr old case of a 4% beer. Anyway, all I got out of this one was really, really tart sour flavor and lightness. Maybe I would revisit, but I’m not a huge Weisse fan.
