Oro is our lightest offering of the five core beers in color and mouth feel. This beer will showcase our ability to make a finesse beer that highlights delicate malt and hop characteristics and a clean fermentation that produces subtle yeast flavors and aromas. To top this off, the Oro will be served as a low-carbonation, nitro-gas blend dispensed version, as well as a fully carbonated offering. This gives us the opportunity to understand how subtle differences in production can impact final presentation and perception in our glass.
Loosely categorized as a golden ale, the color will be deep gold, alcohol content at 5% and a moderately low bittering and dry-hopping rate. The grist profile will consist of pale ale, wheat, and honey malt to maintain a hint of sweetness. Hop selection will be UK Challenger for bitterness and Sovereign for dry-hopping. The yeast will be our house English ale strain producing a mild, complementary fruitiness.
