- Rules, schmules. Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red; or an overgrown American wheat taking Celtic harp lessons; or a Kölsch gone rogue and on the run from the Reinheitsgebot ... pigeonhole it if you must, but this creamy-textured, straw-gold ale begs to be judged on its own merits. Capped with a dense meringue of nose-dotting foam, the pint offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops. A full body with thick mouthfeel, more buttered toast and fruity hops give way to a finish evenly split between malty and bitter. Flaked barley and oat malt (wheat DME for the extract version) build density and a viscous texture with supporting grain flavors. Serve at cellar temperature any time of year; if you really want to go nuts, keg it and dispense with beer gas through a stout faucet!

- 5.0 / 5.013 ReviewsEveryone Loves ItThis is absolutely the all-around favorite among my family and friends! The description is spot-on!January 14, 2018Purchased
9 months agoFantastic!It's creamy oaty goodness. As someone else described, it's like a cream stout on steroids. Dangerously drinkable.June 10, 2015Great carbonation, crisp dry finish.I was amazed at the carbonation of this crisp finishing ale upon opening the first bottle two weeks after bottle conditioning. Has a nice full head and crisp clean mouth feel, and the finish is dry and delightful. I will brew this again and again.April 4, 2014Great crisp summertime ale!This was my first attempt at all-grain brewing. After getting it in the bottles and conditioned for a bit, I took a crack at it and already it is delicious! Can't wait to taste this in a couple of months. Great crisp fruity goodness upfront with just a hint of hoppy bite at the end. Next time I am actually considering putting a little more hops in to see what happens. I will be brewing this again real soon.January 20, 2014A big crowd pleaser...I first brewed this for a party at work. I needed something that wouldn't turn the lite beer crowd off, but would also appeal to craft beer fans. It was a home run with both crowds. I just bought the AG kit again, but i'm keeping this batch all to myself.January 6, 2014Great Spring time beer!I brewed this on March 1st and after being kegged and carbonating for 9 days, it's a very nice beer! Only thing I changed was that I used a half oz of the bitter hops to cut down the IBU's. I think this is a beer that the masses will like. Not bitter, yet has some a nice fruity aroma that follows through in the taste. Clean, crisp and goes great with a warm spring/summer day. Very happy with the way it turned out!April 10, 2013Great StuffIt took quite awhile for this beer to mature. I didn't think I'd like it at first. After a few months now it is just delicious. If you like a full flavored pale beer this is one of the best.January 3, 2013OoooÉ.it's a blondeNice. I bought the AG kit and forgot that I didn't order the yeast, so 1098 British Ale was the choice. I did as others and tossed the rest of the bittering hops in @ 60 and now I wish I hadn't. Awesome beer, a tad hoppyÉbeautiful color. Will certainly do this one again and get the right yeast next time. O, and I dry hopped an oz of Cascade after a cpl of weeks. Smells great!June 4, 2012Great Beer- Go Oat Malt!This is a great beer! I added the whole 1 oz for the bittering and it was a great beer. The next time I brew it I will stick to the recipe to let the oats and flaked barley to shine through. With a little less bitterness it will be a great beer to serve to the masses. I have been looking for a beer I really enjoy and will be a hit with all standard beer drinkers. This is it!March 21, 2012Best all around ale so far!Perfect balance of flavor and great hops. Best pouring beer I have ever made. Cleared up nicely in secondary, could drink this one straight from the bottle but you would miss the smooth, full head. Anyone who likes hops should give this beer a try.January 19, 2012
