Wild Rose Brewery WR4 – American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV | 40 IBU

Wild Rose Brewery WR4 Oat Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV | 40 IBU (C$11.59 at Okotoks Co-Op, 650 ml, packaged on 1-Sep-2018, acquired 27-Oct-2018, reviewed 14-Nov-2018)

Appearance: slightly chill hazed pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: mild, tropical fruit, grainy malt, oats, grass. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly astringent finish. (3/5)

The aroma starts mild but grows as it warms. As it does, it’s hard to avoid a comparison to Froot Loops: you’ve got indeterminate tropical fruits, sweet grains, and oats. And, not unlike Front Loops, this isn’t actually terrible – but I could go a long time between exposures… (14/20)
