Medium gold color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and piney. A medium to lighter bodied American Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and only slightly sweet. Hops are grapefruity and piney. It’s over balanced towards the hops and they tend to drown out the malt sweetness, but not overpowering enough to be annoying. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean but a bit thin at the finish. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Oasis Pale Ale pours a glowing golden color. It has a fine white head that had decent retention and displayed a little lacing.

The aroma is hoppy with a little fruitiness.

The taste is malts and some citrus up front with a hop finish and bitter aftertaste. It was nicely balanced but rather pedestrian, and a little on the thin side.

Overall, it was a respectable but unexciting pale ale.

Very nice, with aromatic hopping - lightly fruity and grapefruity. Well balanced malt integrates the beer.. Finish is very clean - Quite smooth and easy to drink. Falls in the midrange of "more hoppy than the average pale ale, but not as hoppy as an IPA." A close cousin to Red Seal Ale and SNPA. Indeed and "oasis", I need some more of this for the hot weather!

I must thank my truck driving friend Fred for picking up this beer, I thought they had gone out of business, I guess Rockies Brewing now bottles their beers, he doesn’t remember where he picked it up, he also picked up a Scarab Red. It’s been over 4 years since I’ve sampled one of these, and the last bottle I got from a beer club.

The pour from the 12-ounce brown bottle is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a generous white head that is somewhat creamy and the lace a thin coating upon the glass. Nose is sweet malt that is fresh and crisp with a nice malt start also lightly sweet and the top light in feel. Finish has a moderate acidity with the hops delicate and pleasing to the palate, quite dry and a respectable beer.

Clear bright light golden color with a nice light beige head and good carbonation. Huge citrusy grapefruit aroma and flavor; the kind of hop character I love -- lots of them without tasting overly bitter. Light-medium and airy but very smooth.

An incredible American Style Pale Ale - wish I had a lot more of it !!

Lightly foggy copper, bleached-white foamy head that faded slowly. Very floral, like a big garden after a rain. Spicy and very hoppy, somewhat thick across the tongue. Somewhat sharp finish with hops that linger for 'days'. One of the better pales I've had in a year or more, quite drinkable.

There should be a penalty these days for making a pale ale that's good but not original. I just have too many of them. Kind of sick when you have too much of a good thing, eh?

Looks like a pale ale, most notable feature is its fluffy white head. Impressive. Bright, hoppy, citric acid aroma bursts with springtime.

All the usual suspects hang out. Citrus with some esters and a little bit of that herbal "weeds in the mouth" astringency. A bit hoppy for my variety of session beer.

I'm begging to be inspired by a pale ale.

Pours a light golden color with a pretty white head that reduces to a white ring that leaves a small amount of lace on the glass.

The smell is floral and hoppy, but nothing extreme.

I must be getting twisted by Rogue and Deschutes. If a pale ale isn't massively hoppy, I'm dissappointed. I held off rating Oasis' Pale Ale until I had really tasted it. After due consideration, I have come to my senses and realize that this is a good beer.

Its flavor is nice and blanced with a good floral hoppiness and a crisp mouthfeel.

This was one of my beer of the month selections. The past few selections haven't been as good as they should have been. It's good to see Oasis Pale Ale bring them back on track.
