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.

The beer is slightly hazy, light golden color, with a small short lived white head. Slight sourness to the flavor, with wheat the primary flavors. A definite sour tang to the finish. Cuts through a dry mouth very effectively.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Oarsman Ale: This tastes like a slice of American cheese baked onto of a big slice of lemon, except you forgot to take the plastic off.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 boa cerveja! o 'tart' é bem pronunciado. nao conheço muito o estilo... lembra un pouco vinho branco...

Apricots and cherries up front and a bit overripe. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit to sweet for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrTipple (6424) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2017
Sour citrus fruits, grapefruit, bread, grain and cereal malts, zesty lemon, lime. Hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More sour, bitter citrus fruits, yet not too intense, more bread and cereal malts, soft carbonation, light bodied. Decent Berliner Weisse, refreshing and well-balanced. Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza 17, Canada Water.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 Can pours a hazy straw color with a huge white head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of citrus fruit, herbs,and wild flowers.Tastes of tart lemons, seltzer and mildly sweet wheat bread.Light body, abundant carbonation, slick, tongue tingling mouthfeel and a nice tart,lightly salty finish. It is not to tart and very light. This beer is very refreshing and easy to drink on a hot fall afternoon. I like it!

Interesting session wheat beer. Light with notes of lemon. The sour/tartness makes it unique. Interesting but too light for my taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at BeaverEx 2017, London. Colour is cloudy golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, some wheat? and malts.

(thanks for sharing!) Sampled draft @ The Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. Day 1. Pale citrus golden. Nose is fruity pastry dough and peach. Taste is oily sweet peach, bread, pastry dough. Milky caramel body. Not bad, surprised by a) the low score here & b) this being a Berliner Weisse.

Pours a light amber from a can. Developed a huge white head. Flavor is mild for an ale. My preference is for a dark, heavy ale. And that influences my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at beaverfest. Pours yellow, nose is funk, grassy, lemon, taste is similar, too grassy
