Monkey Paw Oatmeal Pale Ale


Brewed by Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery
San Diego, California USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 12 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.4%
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.
