A unique combination of Crystal malts, high-alpha malts and oatmeal help make this beer a silky smooth senation.

Just called oatmeal pale (nitro) but this sounds like it. Low bitterness, pleasantly sweet and floral pale ale, smooth as hell if a bit light. I’d get again.

Hazy peach and copper coloured body with a rich orange glow and a thick, two centimetre dense white head - straight from nitrogen. Aroma of mild oats, some light hops, wort and plentiful amounts of yeast. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and oatie maltiness with a bunch of body and some lighter subdued citrus notes all with a hint of light hops and very little else - perhaps died down from the nitrogen. Aftertaste is nice but relatively simple with not much complexity outside the earthiness and light sugars. Overall, a decent pale, but a good riff using the oats, but not such great execution with the nitrogen which doesn’t seem needed at all. I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Portland, Oregon earlier today on 13-April-2013 for US$5 for 50 cL.

On Tap at the Bend BP Slightly hazy golden orange with a dense nitro induced head. Very light soft malt aromas and flavors, lightly bittered, and a little citrusy hops. Creamy nitro palate but a bit weak and watery.

On Tap at the BrewPub. Clear light orange with a thin quick white head. Faint clean malt and bright hop aroma. Pale ale type stuff. Flavor is PA but cat tell what the oatmeal is suposed to do. Decent A bit thin and the abv comes through a bit much.

On nitro tap at the brewpub. Tasted like a day old Drifter all shaken up. There was oatmeal in this?

On NITRO tap at Brewpub Pours out amber topped with a cream white head. A nice little hop on this. Not as thick as I like with oatmeal maybe would do something???

Nitro @ Brewpub: Copper color, light head and lacing. Nose of fresh cascade hops and a bit of caramel sweetness. The flavor is smooth, I don’t know about silky, can’t really taste the oatmeal. But, it does have a nice creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, but a bit thin and a decent finish.

On nitro at brewpub: Golden/orange pour with a thick white head and very thick lacing. Nose is floral and citrus hops with a sweet presence. Tastes of maltiness, florals, citrus, and a hint of orange. Very smooth underlying malt tones.

Interesting and unique, deep golden coloring, with a small white cloudy head. Aroma is marvelous, like incense, reminds me of a time and a place that I cannot remember, but is very soothing. Floral and fruity, and has a strange bit of perfume. I already love this beer and have not even tasted it yet. Crisp hop profile, with a nice bit of maltiness. This is a truly tasty beer.

Nitro tap at the brewery in February. Light to medium amber colored and clear. Fantastic whitish head is very retentive and leaves dense lacing. Cascade hop aroma. Decent mouthfeel. Oatmeal isn’t too apparent but body is seemingly full due to nitrogen influence, oatmeal or both. Fairly hoppy, moderately bitter well balanced. Decent enough and an interesting experiment.
