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.

Growler filled at Huntington Superstar and consumed the same evening. Pours a crystal clear gold with a thin-moderate white head that disappeared after two sips and left no lace. The aroma is very light with a few wisps of floral hops in the nose and that’s about it. The flavor is mild malt followed by some light hops bitterness. A bit of light breadiness emerges in the aftertaste. A problem-free beer that went down quite easily on a warm summer’s night.

The appearance is a bright, golden color. A thick shaving-cream head. Hazy, only a few slow-moving bubbles. Not bad. The smell is a malty aroma that doesn’t smell like an adjunct. Some Hallertauerish hops; bitter and European. The pilsnery malt dominates the taste. The flavors are reminiscent of adjuncts. A hint of banana. Lemony, but with a hint of a funk. Musty. The hop presence is rather negligible. The feel is bubbly and yet watery. An unusual bitter burn on the way down. A pretty average pils really. Not bad, just kinda dull.

12 oz can. Clear golden with a lasting quarter-inch of bubbles. Faint aroma of crisp green apple. Flavor is similar with a spicy wood and cinnamon-apple finish. Light body is almost astringently dry.

On tap at Nashville’s Music City Brew Festival. This was one of the first beers I had at the festival and it was a great start. A very solid pilsner that is very easy drinking for the summer. Nice pale malt character with a nice subtle hop presence. Wish I could get this at home in KY.

My Bottom Line:
Light cereals and grassy, herbal hops merge in this loose and approachable Pilsener.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty pale yellow.
-The nose is very timid.
-The mouthfeel is not too crisp, carbonated with large bubbles.
-Even though this is very drinkable and rather balanced, I admit I found it more boring than most good pilseners in the USA. I guess I was expecting more from Oskar.

Can.

Can (12oz). Pale gold, hazy, huge fluffy off-white head. Grassy, dry clover and honey aroma, quite floral. Taste is a little grassier, not as sharp, the malt has a slightly soapy edge to it - not bad, a little odd. Light yet chewy-soft mouthfeel, very weak carbonation, some dry grassy/floral bitterness in the aftertaste - it finishes very quickly indeed. Golf beer.

From tap at Pizza port San Clemente. Pours clear and pale. Smooth grassy and dry initial flavoured. Dry cornish to grassy. Bitter base and grassy. Dry finish. Decent brew.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2009
Can 35,5 cl. Clear yellow with a dense white head. Fairly malty nose. Medium body, malt and sulphur with a dry and hoppy finish. Alright I guess, but somehow had expected more from Oscar Blues. 060709

Pours a nice light sunlight yellow with a large soft foamy head. Nose comes across as somewhat hoppy. The first taste is a dry, bitter hoppiness with little malt flavor. It also has some spiciness, almost a hint of cloves or anise. Very good summer beer though, very well put together

Pilsner malts, with a clean and crisp finsih. Has a somewhat spicy kick to it, and has a very good balance of malty depth. Pretty decent.
