Dan opens Greenhouse Oat Lager, a foudre-aged American Pale Lager from Evil Twin Brewing, as his sixth beer from the NYS Craft Beer Box.
STYLE: Foudre-aged American Pale Lager
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce cans, Draft
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.
Light to medium gold with a nice, white, fluffy head, and a little chill haze from the fridge.
Floral note hits the nose first followed by a baguette-like bready smell.
Helles-like malt flavor with some of the biscuit quality in the background and a touch of the oak character with earthiness/woodiness.
Refreshing, with a full-flavored mouthfeel from the foudre.
I could definitely see myself having quite a few of these outdoors at Evil Twin or elsewhere…definitely in warmer weather than right now in NYC. Pair it with light bar fare, nothing too powerful in flavor.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
