Slightly dulled golden bronzish hue with a slim soft crown of off-white fuzzy foam. Keeps a thin collar and some spotty lacing flung about the glass.

Aroma is mostly made up of the hops with prevalent Galena with a nice fresh mix of dullish lemon and lime. The malts of oats add a nice rounded crispness and sweetness to its hoppy tone. Quite a nice twist and very pleasant, and appetizingly fresh.

Taste is mega yummy roundedness with a very well toned hoppyness that's crisp, chunky, and freshly forward. All without being bitter or overbearingly pungent. The play of the oat malt used for the backing is great. A nice meld of semi tangy lemony hops with some lemongrass herbalness and earthyness smoothen across the palate with a wonderfully placed underbelly of sweet and well-rounded oatyness. Yum! And yum again!

Fresh, clean, crisp, smooth, and medium-full in body. Super drinkable. A majorly big time sessionable brew. An excellent play of hop tones backed by oats. One very solid brew!

Two fingers of frothy head on a copper/orange colored body.
A mellow aroma of grain, hay and lemons.
The taste has medium bitterness of lemon with a not a hint of sweetness.
A softer texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
Pretty good and good job with using the oatmeal.

Appearance: (4.0)

- Pours a nice copper clear ale with a robust beige light white head... big retention and thick head settles to yet a thin solid pillow of creamy foam and lace about the glass. Certainly pretty, and shows signs of excellent yeast activity.

Smell: (4.5)

- Wonderful fresh herbal and grassy bitter hop aromas with a balancing bready character from the oats, and a zesty hop pine essence. Balanced caramel sweetness compliments the perfect hop additions.. truly a nice smelling beer.

Taste: (3.0)

- Good enough to bottle. That is what I say anyway. The caramel and pine and bitter hop represents well, and this is truly a nice pale... though a touch robust in flavor, and it seems perhaps pulled a touch early. It does show some aceto-like traits of high esters and cider-like tartness. However, it is tasty yet, and to be had fresh as possible. Balance is king, and it's early boil bitterness is unmatched.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)

- Solid medium body and is very well carbonated, almost too much so... though it makes the beer look stellar. Bit drying from the bitter hops which is wonderful, and only a touch chewy and cloying.

Overall: (3.0)

- This beer is pretty, and is made with what seems like great ingredients. It is balanced, nicely bittered, and sits in a glass perfectly for a nice amount of time. There are some off flavors however that equate to tartness from an early pull, or ester-like aceto in the mix. If that wasn't present, this would be up there with the likes of Fort George's Sunrise.. though for me, that is a hard oatmeal pale to beat.

Hazy light amber with a three finger off white head. Good amount of lacing.
Smell is grainy tangy malts. Some floral hops.
Taste is bitter hops with a smooth malty backbone. The oats seem to overwhelm the hops and malt character. Smooth for sure but kind of bashes the hop and malt character.
Mouthfeel is quite full , adequete carbonation and has a medium dry bitter finish.
Overall a pretty fair APA maybe hit a bit too hard by the oatmeal.
Well worth a taste though, might be just what you are looking for!

Probably the best and most consistent beer these guys produce. Pours a pale tan/straw hue with a persistent head fading to a really nice lace.

Nose is all pale ale with mild malts and hops, some citrus, and a hint of the oatmeal coming through. Surprisingly inviting.

Palate is fresh with lovely hops up front and along the side of the mouth. A nice citrus core rounds things out. A hint of cereal and malt.

Texture is lovely with a grainy consistency, good balance of acids, tannins, and alcohol. Finish is medium with good character. Decent grip.

This is a winner, and a beer that I would regularly select out of a tap list of usual suspects. If you're in the mood for something new or different, then this is a worthy candidate for drinking.

22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyplope store in S.Salem. $4.99 Pours a slightly hazy dark golden colour with a large bubby off white head. Aroma is subdued and mostly of oats,slightly grassy hop and hay Taste not so subdued with resiny hops and smooth oat and a touch of toffee. Nice yet odd on the tongue smooth from the eats yet well carbonated at the same time! OK beer drinkable.
