3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
