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.

BroSpud (1667) - , 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 (474) - 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.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
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.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Sample from a can in the VIP tent at WBF Raleigh on 5/2/09. Yellow bodied with a short white head. Nose is malty and grainy with hops, grass and light lemon-honey. Taste is toasted malt, grass, floral notes, light honey, grains, and hops. Body is crisp, clean, moderately carbonated and medium overall. Ends with more grass, herbal notes, floral hops, grains, biscuit, light honey and toasted malt.

Pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a small white head that fades away quickly. The aroma shows notes of fresh grains, floral hops, and some sweet malt. The flavor follows with the fresh grains and even more spicy floral hops than the nose lets on. There is a hint of light citrus as well followed by some toasted biscuit malt to sweeten things up. Pretty good flavor in this beer. Medium bodied with ample carbonation and a spicy finish. A nice beer for a hot summer day.

Mini growler from Half-Time. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick white head. Light citrus hops, grain and lager yeast. Medium bodied, nice sweetness. Finishes with a gentle bitterness. Nice easy drinking pils, but I’m still not a fan of lager smell on the front end.

12 oz can... aroma is not so good.... nice white head.... clear pale color.... very light on the palate... easy to drink... not much going on flavor wise ... again a little overpriced for the product... as mentioned in previous rating grassy flavor
