Otter Creek Over Easy

Posted: May 26, 2015 in American Pale Ale, Otter Creek Brewing, Reviews

I hope that everyone had a nice Memorial Day. I had the day off, but it was like a normal weekend for me since I am off on Sundays and Mondays. It’s taken awhile, but I’m used to the schedule. I tend to get a lot done on Mondays. Anyways, I reviewed a few beers over the weekend, this being one, which is billed as a session beer and they’re all the rage now. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 4.6%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Straight from our stash to your glass, we’ve created a chronically crushable ale that turns over easy without exhausting the palate. A brand new addition to Otter Creek’s year-round lineup, Over Easy will be available in our Mixed Bag summer variety pack and on draught in mid-March. Look for it in six-packs, 12-packs and cases this April.”

Random: Summer is definitely the season for session beers.

This beer poured with a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left slight lacing on the glass. The body was a lemon color with light carbonation visible. The nose was very floral with mango. The taste had notes of mango and papaya. There was also a lot of floral hop notes with lemon juice. It had very little malt to it. The body was on the thinner side and the carbonation was too light. The finish was quick with lemon juice. This was $1.75 a bottle, which was $.15 per ounce. Despite the affordable price, the carbonation needed to be dialed up and the flavor was just missing something. I wouldn’t rush back to have this again.
