COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth and creamy session-style american pale ale. With a straw-colored hue this beer’s dry nature with affable bitterness and lovely hop aroma makes it an easy choice for drinking anytime of the day, even when the sun is rising. This beer is based on the first beer ever produced at the Fort George Brewery (Beer#1). We decided to add 50lbs. of oatmeal to make it even better.

Eh its okay, resinous hops that kind of smells like pot but balanced with a oatmeal sweet and smoothness.

mcberko (7229) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Fort George, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of floral hops, not a whole lot else. Flavour is rather unusual, with fruity floral hops and a touch of nuttiness. Very nice stuff, a little unusual but the flavours are cohesive. Nice one.

Hazy straw color with a small white head. Not overly hoppy, good malt backbone. Earthy. Oatmeal gives this an interesting character. Mellow mouthfeel, goes down real smooth.

"oatmeal lends a uniquely grainy aroma and a distinct feel. flavor starts out average but has a really pleasant back end bitterness, and hints of fruitiness, that make this a bit of a standout, and definitely unique."

Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with thick creamy white head. Aroma is huge tropical fruits, papaya, mango, pear, tangerine. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a great hop bitterness that finished clean. Overall this is a really nice brew.
