Icey Pale Ale
Last week, Ed Roberts opened the trunk of his car because he wanted to show me something. No dead body, either! But he did hand me a pounder can of Oskar Blues Icey Pale Ale that I had never heard of. The can says this is an Icelantic Limited Edition for Winter 2014/15. 7% alcohol. The artwork showing an enormous buffalo-like creature in the woods is very lifelike! This can was canned on 11/19/14 and the stamp also says "Icey Icey Baby."
Nice sweet fruity aroma, lightly floral as well. Beautiful fruity orange, mango and other tropical flavors to start. Some yeasty character as well but not too much. A little spicy and peppery. Carbonation and texture were also very nice. The finish was clean with more fruitiness left behind. Very good beer! Thoroughly enjoyable.
