Lagunitas Brewing Company Bitter Oats Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Lagunitas Brewing Company Bitter Oats Ale.
From the Lagunitas Brewing Company website: “Ale Brewed With Boatloads of Oats and a Mountain of Hops. This big boozy blonde was brewed with a boatload of oats, giving it a creamy, sweet mouthfeel with a hoppy blast. It's like a powdered sugar doughnut topped with deliciously bitter, danky resinous hops. Chow down!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a honey orange color with a dense white head leaving loads of sticky lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, tropical and piney hop scents, bready, oat and sweet malt notes.
Taste: Sweet malts, oats, vanilla, doughy, citrus, tropical and pine hops and a slight honey taste.
Overall: Creamy and smooth, Lagunitas Brewing Company Bitter Oats Ale is great. This 10.5% ABV offering is very easy to drink even with the high ABV. I’d absolutely purchase again.
