Fort George "Sunrise OPA" (Oatmeal Pale Ale)
Fort George Brewery - Astoria, Oregon USA
Pale Ale (ABV 5.5%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that had great retention, eventually reducing to a thick film with a medium collar which created some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a cereal malt, citrus and floral hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit peel), caramel, oats and a mild fruity ester (peaches).

The taste was mildly sweet and a tad bitter with a mild fruity sweetness and a hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy and rather creamy (due to the oats, I’m sure) with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor stuck around for an extremely long time with a strong bitter citrus taste that laid on the taste buds for what seemed like forever.

Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and had a nice creamy dry texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a very tasty, quite drinkable creamy brew with a mild ABV. This is a great session brew with a nice bold bitterness...
