3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
