Oat Pils uses as inspiration the classic German Pils recipes, but we commited an "heresy" with the Reinheitsgebot law, because we used a dash of Oats, making the body a tad more "velvety". (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)
- Beer: Oat Pils
- Style: German Pils (5D. German Pils)
- ABV: 5%
- IBU: 26
- Look: yellow color, transparent, with a great white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
- Aroma: malty notes, mainly with a grainy and sweet feel, are present. Light presence of floral notes, as a secondary aroma;
- Taste: the hop is really present, bringing floral notes. The hop brings a medium bitterness, which is supported by a nice malty background, bringing sweet and grainy notes.
- Mouthfeel: medium-low body, medium-high carbonation and a dry and short finish;
- Overall: In days that are dominated by extreme sensations — Double NE IPAs, Pastry Stout, Sours —, it’s good to know that there still are breweries that try to brew the classic, older, “simpler” styles with great care. But, as Thomas Keller says, “Simple is the hardest thing to do”. And Cervejaria Avós achieved a great achievement on brewing this delicious beer.
