COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Oatmeal Pale Ale is sort of an unusual style, and something not often seen in San Diego. Most of our city’s beers are dry, crisp, and bitter. This is a mellower pale ale, with a full, supportive body that gives a strong malt presence with a lot of floral and tangerine rind hop flavors to balance it out. Smelling this beer is a treat, with a big oatmeal and citrus aroma. Creamy and smooth, lightly bitter, a beautiful gold with a bright white head and beautiful lacing. Excellent for those who enjoy a more evenly balanced pale.

Theydon_Bois (9636) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Keg at Monkey Paw, SD, 21/04/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is toasted malt, bitter orange, straw, light citric peel,caramel, bread dough. Taste comprises orange pith,straw, light hops, touch of grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so APA lacks hop presence.

16oz can pours clear copper with near white head of foam. The aroma is sort of floral and a bit spicy with a hint of malts to maybe biscuit malts. The taste follows suit with fairly bold floral hop notes that have some firm bitterness but remain too floral for my particular taste. Behind the floral notes murmurs some spicy hops that grow to a decent level bitterness to midway and into the finish accompanied by a bit of biscuit like maltiness. Yep, too floral for me but good beer though.

Can at Brewster’s LAX. Deep copper-amber color with a fine, low head. Malty caramel nose, citrus, peach or apricot, nice fruit. Rich full malt flavor, creamy and tasty but not sweet. Tangerine and apricot, grass. Very bitter finish. Very full and drinkable, also original. Nice stuff.

brokensail (11253) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
The beer is a hazy orange color with a tall white head. Really surprisingly strong oatmeal aroma. The hop profile is mostly citrus peel and pine with a nice breadiness to it as well. A hint of grass toward the back end. The flavor also has realy impressive amounts of oatmeal character. Lightly bitter from the pine and citrus peel hop notes, but leaning a bit toward the sweet side of things. I really enjoyed how much the oatmeal came through on this beer.

16oz can. Pour is fairly faint gold with a decent amount of head. Fairly benign nose of bready malts and light fruit. Taste follows the nose. Oatmeal is subtle but there. Clean on the back end. Nothing earth shattering but certainly a good sessionable brew.
