Review – Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale
An all time favorite that was introduced to me over 3000 miles away from Lyons, CO, in Portland, ME. I was amazed at the flavor that came out of this can. Oskar Blues seems like a must stop by place on the way to the Great American Beer Festival.
Oskar Blues – Dale’s Pale Ale – 12oz can poured into a New Belgium beer glass. 6.5% abv.
Appearance: A murky burnt orange with a fluffy, big white head. Leaves spotty lace, and has not much carbonation in the body.
Taste: Fruity, yet bitter hops fill your mouth. Malts are very present and close to a cinnamon or honey graham cracker. Finishes with some refreshing lemony hp, but stas in check with the sweet malt. Other fruits are present such as mango and pineapple.
Mouthfeel: A bit sticky for a Pale Ale. The hops stay in your mouth long after the sip. A bit puckering.
Overall: One of the best beers I have ever had. It must be poured into a glass. It becomes a completely different beast once taken out of its cage. This beer blurs the lines between a Pale and an India Pale Ale.
