From Portland Oregon’s Burnside Brewing comes their “Oatmeal Pale Ale”. The beer pours an amber colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of big malts, oatmeal, earthy and some mild fruits. The flavour is of oatmeal, bready, earthy, caramel, pine, resin and a citrus finish. This reminds me of the multiple Rye combination ales for some reason. The alcohol content comes in at 5.6% with an IBU of 44. I am happy I have finally tried this beer as it is very tasty.
Commercial Description: Burnside Oatmeal Pale Ale is brewed using copious amounts of Crystal, Galena, & Fuggle hop varietals. This is a clean dry Pale Ale with low bitterness and lots of hop flavor. We have chosen to add 75 pounds of locally rolled oats to increase body and give our Pale a sweet creamy finish.
