4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2009 Im drinking it out of the can like nature intended, but if I must...i will go now and waste some by pouring it into a glass just so i can rate the appearance, bullshit if you ask me. OK, im back to report that its a yellow beer...and with a big fluffy head. Thanks. Nose was a rustic lager scent with notes of straw and sweet grain cereal. Flavors were as nice as I have ever had in a lager...I mean, this almost tastes fucking awesome. Clean, grainy, somewhat sweet, a little cereal, and with a spicy saaz characteristic in the finish..no adjuncty jet fuel bullshit here...just a nice session beer. at $10 a six pack, if every dickhead drank this instead of budweiser, I’d have more business. RE-rate after 20 or six packs- NOT SURE IF THEY PUT COCAINE IN THIS OR WHAT, BUT I AM ADDICTED, I DRINK TWO OF THESE FOR EVERY OTHER BEER I DRINK.

12 oz can. Clear yellow with a big white head that disappears quickly. Malty nose, light grain and herbal hop. Mild bitter floral bite, somewhat herbal and grainy. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is pretty much to be expected, clear yellow, bright white soapy head, and visibly effervescent. The nose is dirty for a pils, with some non-funky hay, corn husks, sugar and some cereal grain. The flavour is just about the same with a little added spiciness. The hops are not well represented in this one, as I usally love Saaz. These hops taste grassy, with no suggestions of apple and pear that make me love the Saaz so much. Its not as good as the original Czech Pilsner, but its way more tolerable than the American pale lagers that the rest seems to love for some reason that is beyond me. Whatever.

Bottle. Golden beer with a nice white head. Mineral and malt aroma with light spice. Malt and mineral flavor with breadiness and grass. Medium-light bodied. Grass, bread, and mineral tones linger.

12oz can from Whole Foods. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Flavor is a nice, crisp bready flavor with some hop bitterness. Some diactyl in the flavor - not enough to ruin it, but enough to make its presence known.

I’m not an Oskar Blues expert but from what I’ve tasted, this one doesn’t measure up, not even by a long shot. No spicy, hoppy crispness. Taste a lot like butter. Disappointing to say the least.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can courtesy of Tampa Brew. Pours a clear dark golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and somewhat floral with notes of sour malt, grass, hay, some honey and spice. Flavor is sweet and lightly floral with notes of honey, spice, floral hops, fruity and flowery esters. Generally light body with a light floral hop finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Enjoyed in a mug from the 12 oz can. To be honest, I was really excited to try this one. I have enjoyed all of the other widely-distributed Oskar Blues products, and have absolutely loved all of them. However, I was, to say the least, extremely disappointed by this one. It pours a crystal clear pale golden color...no problems there. However, issues start with the nose. Instead of notes of German or Czech noble hops; perhaps done in an "over-the-top" way as with the rest of the O.B. products, this smells nothing like hops. I got notes of stale pilsner malt. Little improves in terms of flavor. Instead of the crisp pilsner malt note and dry backbone one expects in a a great pils, you get the sense that this is simply a dressed up Budweiser. Also, there were very detectable notes of DMS; entirely unacceptable in a production beer. What a shame.

Pours a light gold with a thick white head.Creamy malt aroma with a nice hop balance. Smooth crisp malt body and a pronounced hop bitterness. Not my favorite style, but this is a tasty lawnmower beer.
