3.4/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

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.

Bomber poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Burnside's Oatmeal pale is auburn with an off-white head leaving light lace.

Smell is fairly hoppy, citrus, not pungent, but a nice sweetness. Apricot comes out as it warms.

Taste is also citrusy, fairly full hop flavor caramel, a little bubblegum, with a nice herbal hop snap and firm bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, some crispness, medium light bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, nice flavor, soft, rounded mouthfeel from teh oats, but the driness counters that somewhat. Leaning a bit more in the English style, well executed, if not terribly thrilling.

3.6/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!

3.65/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a cloudy, hazy orangeish yellow with about 3/4 inch of just off-white head that had very good retention and lacing.

The aroma was very evenly balanced blend of grain and hops. I didn't really pick up any oat in the scent. On the tongue the oats come through a bit in the background of the solid grain base. There was just enough hops for seasoning through most of the taste, but there was a nice hop finish that lingered for a bit.

The body was nicely full, without being heavy or sticky, and carried the flavors very well. Drinkability was better than very good, I could easily drink these all afternoon while watching a game. Overall, a very nice, easy drinking brew that's certainly worth your time when you see it.
