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.

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.

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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2009
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.

dchmela (2559) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2009
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.

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2009
pours a fizzy yellow. slight citrus clean nose. Grassy flavor, some DMS. Thin bodied. Good warm weather beer.

BroSpud (1596) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2009
12oz can. Drank straight from a can. Tasted OK as far as pilseners go but I am not that big a fan of the style and found that I wasn’t all that into this particular one either.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Pours clear golden, with a huge, puffy, three-finger, cream-colored head, with good, lasting lacing. Aroma of apple, caramel, and some light hay and grass notes. Light, crisp body, well carbonated. Tastes of bread and apple, with floral and earthy hops. A very pleasant aftertaste. I love those Saaz hops. Well balanced and drinkable.

Nice gold with white head. Aroma is malty, light sweetness, grains. Taste is fairly sweet with light alcohol, crisp- pretty quality stuff.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Officially my summertime pool/beach beer of 2009. I usually knock these back straight from the can while sitting on a pool float, but I managed to pour one into a proper glass for the rating. The body is mostly clear with a very faint haze, medium gold in color. A nice head of barely off-white foam recedes slowly, forming lily pad like clumps at the surface. Foamy lace marks the glass well. The nose is nice for a pils, that signature bready yeast coming through the fresh, pale malt and floral, grassy hops. Flavors are of the same mold, fairly fresh and crisp, showing cereal grain malts, grassy hops, and balancing, doughy yeast. The palate is medium bodied, even keeled, and without major fault. Nice for a pils, and bravo to Oskar Blues for putting a decent, sessionable beer in a can.

12 oz can from Odeed! Nose is grainy with some light citrusy and floral hops. Urine yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is a bit of bitterness with a lemon note. Wish it was hoppier but the bitterness does increase as it finishes.
