COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnside Oatmeal Pale Ale is brewed using copious amounts of Crystal, Galena, & Fuggle hop varietals. This is a clean dry Pale Ale with low bitterness and lots of hop flavor. We have chosen to add 75 pounds of locally rolled oats to increase body and give our Pale a sweet creamy finish.

Fatehunter (1690) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Two fingers of frothy head on a copper/orange colored body. A mellow aroma of grain, hay and lemons. The taste has medium bitterness of lemon with a not a hint of sweetness. A softer texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. Pretty good and good job with using the oatmeal.

Bottle at home. Bottled 04/14, so it has aged quite a bit. Nose is almost Bretty. Aroma of malt, oats, grain, tea, soft herbal notes, earthy hops. Flavour is moderate bitter. Body is medium. Nice herbal tea and oats aroma. Would like to try a fresher sample one day.

Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s place in London. Clear golden beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, caramel, grass, grassy notes. Grassy caramel flavor, hay, floral, some herbal toes. Not very impressive.

1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light herbal. Dry hoppy, toasted malt. Smooth fruity, peachy and toasted malty. Smooth fruity, crisp hoppy. Bitter and smooth fruity finish.

DuffMan (8044) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, shared with Dave. Medium orange, low white head. Cooked peaches with undertones of torn plastic, a touch of treacle sweetness. That plastic becomes so intrusive-- must be an off bottle?

gnoff (8793) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2015
Part of a flight on June 29, 2015. At the brewpub in Portland.
Light hazy golden color, off-white head. Sweet, caramel, hoppy, floral taste. Hoppy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Malty and hoppy scent.

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Burnside. Amber colored beer with a small white head. Nose of grain husks and pale malts right away. Light grassy and floral hops, perhaps a touch of citrus. Tastes a bit like popcorn...and bread. Mildly bitter with some of the citrus notes being of the peel/pith variety as well as some grain astringency. Just nothing really all that great here.

Gription79 (2651) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Had on draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy copper, citrusy, creamy mouth feel, earthy, slightly woody, citrus rind/pithy. Interesting.

UXO (862) - CANADA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours hazy pale amber with three fingers of rocky and growing off-white head and moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is oatmeal, citrus, floral, earthy, caramel malt. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium bodied and slightly creamy, moderate carbonation, dry and lingering bitter finish. (3/5) First time I’ve had an "oatmeal pale,” but it plays out pretty much the way you’d expect: the oatmeal adds body and smoothness to the base pale ale, but also seems to slightly dull the nose. perhaps as a result, the hop character seems to split the difference between English and American styles - not quite as bright and fruity as APA’s, but definitely more aggressive than typical EPA’s. (14/20)

Dark and roasty beer that is smooth and has a tan head. Malty beer with complex taste and well balanced feel.

Bottle shared with Chase, thanks. Pours a golden orange color, moderate haze, and a large creamy sandy head. Nose is light floral and citrus, some earthy bits. Modest hop flavor, floral, citrus, and some spicy herbals… could be the oatmeal. Well balanced, approachable.
