COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rein Pale Ale (RPA) - The Rein Pale Ale (RPA) is a cross between an American-style pale ale and a German-style lagered ale. This distinctive ale is brewed with a combination of four different American and German barley malt varieties, spicy American Tettnang and noble Czech Saaz hops. A beautiful light amber color, this moderately bitter pale ale is an enjoyable selection for almost any occasion. And like all OMB beers our RPA is brewed in strict accordance with the world famous German Reinheitsgebot beer purity law of 1516. That means it’s all natural, with no chemicals, preservatives or cheap adjunct ingredients. Malt, hops, water and yeast. Nothing else. Taste the difference! 5.2% ABV, 36 IBU, 6 SRM.

I like this! Pours a dark yellow with a white head that disappears too soon. A slight haze still shows good carbonation. Aroma is faint but nice. Good hop flavors, bitter, pleasant. Nice mouth feel. Good aftertaste. Very good beer!

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Light copper-blonde color with light silken, froth head that thinly coats the glass. Lively, crisp German-accented grain nose. The body, although simple and approachable, sports a lovely, honeyed grain mix with a finish this at a once sweet and dry.

Dogbrick (7992) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Sample at the Stock Car Cafe at CLT. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly bitter floral hops, bready malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is lightly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draft sample at the 9th Annual Summertime Brews Festival, Greensboro, 7/13/13. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal, spicy hops and caramel malts. The taste is caramel, herbal and spicy hops. Medium bodied, very clean.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft at Flying Saucer Charlotte. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing. Slight malt note on the nose. A little bit of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. A little boring for a pale ale.

rayg1 (550) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours out a slight orange golden color with a small head. Mild aroma of just a hint of hops and a touch of sweetness. Hops were mostly that dank musky smell that I think of Saaz hops having. Upon sipping the beer is slighly sweet of caramel but then finishes lightly spicy and bitter. This was an ok pale ale, I would have liked the finish to be a bit cleaner.

thornecb (4367) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours deep amber into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel and rye front to back.

Travlr (11209) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Draft at the source. Hazy golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of flowers and grass. Taste is bitter and lager like.

Slight aroma. Nice amber appearance but thin head. Delicate hop flavors with light bitterness. Enjoyable but not exceptionable.
