COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Designed as a flavorful session beer, Oarsman Ale uses a classic German brewing technique to impart a light, refreshing tartness. Oarsman Ale grew out of a desire to explore the tradition of session beers, trading intensity for finesse while still creating a worthwhile experience for the taster. The grain bill includes a healthy portion of wheat, while light hopping lend citrus & herbal notes to the aroma. Fermented with Bell’s house ale yeast, Oarsman comes in at 4.0% alcohol by volume. Rather than being the dominant flavor note, the tartness in Oarsman takes on more of a palate-cleansing role, making it perfect with meals or purely on its own.

Bottle split at JF’s, cheers Jim, 20/08/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with moderate off white spotting. Nose is citric peel, light vegetal notes, citric dankened straw, lemon rind. Taste comprises citric sherbet, lemon rind, hay, floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonaiton, citric sherbets in the close. Pretty low end ’Linner, had expected more from Bells, hardly detected any acidity in this one, no crisp refreshing close. Drinkable but ulimtately a miss!

mcberko (17847) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
On tap at Tap & Bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out light coriander and a touch of citrus. Flavour is laid back, with coriander seed upfront, followed by citrus and lacto. But it’s all obscured and rather jumbled. Not the best but it’s reasonably constructed.
