Oak Tree – First Revision

Oak Tree has become one of RSB’s most popular brews. It is destined to be our flagship brew for summer enjoyment!

This American Amber Ale style recipe is based on an award-winning Red Nectar Ale (Nectar Ales, SLO, CA) clone. Beautiful red/amber color with balanced malt and hops. American Pale (2-Row) and medium Crystal (40 and 80) provide the malty flavor and fermentables. A little flaked wheat imparts a slight wheat flavor and extra body.

We’ve mixed many popular American hop varieties including Centennial, Amarillo Gold and Liberty for a nice citrusy flavor and aroma. For this batch, we also added some leftover Fuggle (US) and Mount Hood hops for an even more complex taste structure.

This will be ready for consumption at the end of April. Probably best by mid-May.
