What burgeoning raft brewery would be complete without the Ubiquitous Oake Ale? not us! We’ve loaded this beer with Pacific Northwest hops to bring out bold citrus flavors with a hint of pine. A combination of two row, special roast, and wheat give a backing malt presence. What else is there to say? It’s pale. It’s an Ale. It is the Ubiquitous Pale Ale.

Not much of an aroma to speak of. Very hoppy and dry. Finishes cleanly with little aftertaste.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish but with prickly carbonation. Creamy malt with a touch of caramel. Fresh bitter hops - orange and orange marmalade. Gets sweeter before the crisp finish. Quite a simple beer but it works very well.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big malty component; toasted bread, mild caramel with citrus and pine hops. The flavor is more malt forward. Bitterness is on the lighter side.

burg326 (5384) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured a golden color, aromas of spruce, pine, citrus and malt. Flavors are light citrus with some malty backbone. A nice beer overall.

This is a really terrific PA; on-par with other excellent local pale ales like Daisy Cutter & Double Fist. Drinkable, great citrus-y nose, nice bold hoppy flavor, and a cool-looking label. Another excellent addition to the local Chicago craft family.

Tmoney99 (13625) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and spruce hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

Bomber to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and MALTY. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Decent, but a little malty for the style.

phaleslu (9429) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks, Tom! Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. I didn’t pay attention to the batch, so I’m not sure if it was 27 or 43. Really malty. Crackers, toast, breakfast cereal, grass, floral notes, and some citrus peel. But malty up front. Light-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Drank under the assumption it was an APA and still leans more that way, if that means anything.

Smells of pineapple and apricot. Excellent mouthfeel. Nice body. A little sticky. Tropical fruit bitterness up front, meek caramel in the middle, resinous, lasting finish. Incredible. I could drink this all night long. An exceptional beer.

Decent pine with a bit of caramel scent. Taste is similar with a very nice pine and toffee/caramel taste is decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

December 15, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Golden brown pour with some head. Citrus and piney hops in aroma and taste. I am just too drunk and tired to add anything more to this rating.
