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 Bellís 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.

MaltOne (322) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours very pale wheat color. White head. Can be slightly cloudy due to the yeast sediment. Aroma is slightly yeasty, citrus, tart fruit. Tast is tart (not bitter) like lemon and green seedless grapes. Very crisp finish. Light but quite refreshing. Could be great on a hot summer day; Tasty with lighter dishes like salads, or a mild fish, or chicken dish.

ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2016
Draught at Churchkey, Washington DC. Pours a hazy light gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Riesling, white tea and light sourness make up the aroma. Light tartness up front, with hints of riesling, leads into a light body, with white tea notes. A short finish leaves a lightly sour after taste. Decent and quite refreshing.
