COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth and creamy session-style american pale ale. With a straw-colored hue this beer’s dry nature with affable bitterness and lovely hop aroma makes it an easy choice for drinking anytime of the day, even when the sun is rising. This beer is based on the first beer ever produced at the Fort George Brewery (Beer#1). We decided to add 50lbs. of oatmeal to make it even better.

Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that had great retention, eventually reducing to a thick film with a medium collar which created some excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a cereal malt, citrus and floral hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit peel), caramel, oats and a mild fruity ester (peaches). The taste was mildly sweet and a tad bitter with a mild fruity sweetness and a hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy and rather creamy (due to the oats, I’m sure) with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor stuck around for an extremely long time with a strong bitter citrus taste that laid on the taste buds for what seemed like forever. Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and had a nice creamy dry texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a very tasty, quite drinkable creamy brew with a mild ABV. This is a great session brew with a nice bold bitterness...

Can (16oz). Light golden with white head. Big citrus aroma.taste was mostly citrus. Quite bitter, perhaps too much to make this respecting. I will not make this a regular purchase, but ok.

Draft pour pint at the Wilde Rover. Listed at 5.2% Pours a clear amber gold with a thin foam head and lacing. Low hop aroma with a sweetness to both that and the flavor. Juicy hop, sweet fruit flavor. Cool finish. Thick body with a lighter flavor. Solid OPA, though I can’t think of too many more than this one. I’ve enjoyed this every time I’ve had it.

Sampled at the Pike brewpub in Seattle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad pale ale at all.

Interesting concept, and good. Solid APA. Not sure if I’m getting any oatmeal notes, but no matter -- good.
