OATSMOBILE: 92 Points
This Pale Ale is available year-round in 12 oz. bottles.
Brewer’s Description: “Aromatic. Approachable. Unique. Intriguing. Happy-go-lucky. Full-bodied. And we’re not just talking about the horse. This hop-forward session Pale Ale uses a blend of classic and modern Pacific Northwest hops, including Mosaic, Equinox and Glacier, for a pungent blend of peach, mango and tropical aromas. The signature ingredient – oats – are what makes Oatsmobile Ale stand apart, and gives it a body that you don’t see in most other session Pale Ales.”
My Description: This ale does have a surprisingly denser mouthfeel than most pale ales, especially at this low ABV. This could easily become a go to beer. It begins with a good sized, white colored head with an excellent retention level that leaves behind a great amount of lacing. The aroma is inviting with notes of stone fruits, woodsy hops, and some citrus hops. Oatsmobile is medium/full bodied with a moderate carbonation level and a dry finish. The flavor profile shows a nice balance between the malty backbone and delicious hop notes. Citrus hops, woodsy hops, and a touch of tropical notes intertwine with notes of crackers and pale malts. The aftertaste is moderately low in bitterness with lingering resiny hop notes. This beer is a great session beer with lots of flavors and a good body. It is best served around 40°F and pairs nicely with veggie pizza, Thai noodles, or fried chicken salads.
