COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2009
clear golden pour, slight head. Malt dominates, even abit sweet, some nice hops aftertaste, some grass, nice drinker.

obguthr (4451) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Can: Weak grass and corn aroma. Cloudy yellow, headless. Cardboardy with a touch of lemony tartness. Maybe some berries in the end, but obviously off.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Can. Pours a large, white, frothy head. Clear, golden body. Spicy, herbal, noble hop aroma with underlying grainy/bready malt. Flavor is full of spicy hops held up by a sunny, summery Pilsener malt backbone. Light, smooth body. Malty sweet up front with a clean, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Lively carbonation. Overall a straightforward, simple, delicious Pilsener. Well done.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Can pours a crystal clear goldenrod body with a large vanilla head. Spicy and grassy hop aroma. Taste has a floral and spicy hop bitterness that is balanced by biscuity malt that has a hint of honey sweetness. One of the better American brewed pilsners I’ve run across.

Jayb0 (1081) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2009
can. nice initial pils head with spritzy carbonation. nice color. crisp although slightly distracting level of hops and fiinish not quite as dry as I’d like. But very good.

hopsandvines (61) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Pours slightly coludy for a pilnser beer. Small white head, Saaz hops on the nose does not overpower the the Pilsner malt. A good attempt at the Czech Pils stlye, a little on the thin side of the style, woth $8.99 a 6/pk

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
EithCubes (5208) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Can. Earthy bitterness in the nose with a spritz of citrus. Clear golden pour with slow-moving, long-lasting carbonation and a large, clinging frothy white head. Watery body is malt-forward and smooth, taste just dripping with woody, bready Saaz, with the grassier and floral components off to the side. Mildly bittersweet with a bit of spice kicking up dust at the back. Simple, straightforward malt pillow of a beer (which is to say, an achievement for an American pils).

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
ucfknightscott (56) - Casselberry, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Excited about this new release from Oskar Blues. They make some fantastic beers. Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head. Looks like liquid gold, very inviting. Aroma is soft with breadiness, light hops, and honey. Drinks very smooth and refreshing. Notes of honey, biscuit, and light hops. A great beer for a summer day. Very well balanced and recommended. Not bad at all.

sunevdj (3448) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2009
Pours a clear golden with a white head. Smells of brew buckets with a hint of plant sap. Low sweetness with some bitterness. Slightly floral. Some malty characters. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Bitter finish.

From the Can at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 10/10/2008 Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured floral and hoppy with a crisp bitter and slightly creamy malt finish.
