Aquarians - Oat Pale Ale
5.5% / 25 IBU
This soft-bodied, citrus-forward, tropical New England style Oat Pale Ale makes for a super sessionable beer for your long weekend.
Brendan's Take On: Aquarians
My intention with this beer was to brew something similar to some of the hazers we’ve been brewing of late (Magic, Juicin) but with a bit of a lower abv and drier…. something more “sessionable”. So with this one we mashed in at a slightly lower temperature to create more fermentable sugars resulting in a lower final gravity (less residual sugar). The beer is very smooth but doesn’t have the super full mouthfeel compared to, say, Everyday Magic. I also wanted something really citrusy tropical to play up the refreshing/dry aspect of the beer so we loaded this one up with Citra (big citrus) and Zythos hops (tangerine, grapefruit and pineapple).
