2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a single can from Oak Tree. Clear golden in color with active carbonation and a lasting white head. Aroma has a moderate level of earthy saaz hops as well as grain and some touches of corn. Taste: some spicy saaz, but mostly grain, and some cooked corn, or maybe flaked maize? Light bodied, easy to drink, but the vegetal/corn component gets too much in the way for myself. This reminds me too much of a macro. I’m glad I didn’t buy a 4 pack.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow (yella ?) gold with a nice looking white sudsy head. You will notice visible rising carbonation.
Aroma: Biscuity malt and a small whiff of Euro hops.
Taste: Biscuity malt, bitter hops, pale malts, and a bitter crisp hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Very heavy for a pils. Seems very full bodied, and almost thick. Has a little bit of creaminess to it as well.
Overall: A great easy going lager with no effed up aftertaste. Because it is an American pilsner in a can, your really looking for some of that sour, corny twang you would find in an American Macro beer. Nope, none of that.

I actually liked this beer. Quite sessionable. Yellow piss pour, thick head. Perfect bite, nice sweetness with hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like another pilsener? Must be because this one is a "Gold Metal Winner". Pours yellow, of course. Flavor is packing a grainy and hoppy punch. Flavors are crisp, clean and strong, without making the beer too strong to drink on a hot summer day. This might have just shot to the top of the list for the perfect beer for yardwork. Light and full flavored. Good job, Oskar Blues.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at the ’09 Fish Fry. Pours light yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is flour, malt, and hay. The flavor is hay, mild bitterness, and some dry bread flour. Not nearly as adventurous as I was expecting, but it’s a fair enough Pilsener nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden color with a white head. A grassy lemon aroma on this one. The flavor is rather malty with some lemons and a slightly bitter finish. Overall drinkable but Oskar Blues does alot better than this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Large bubbled head, but it recedes slowly and leaves some spotty lace. Crystal clear with a yellowish-straw color.
Grainy aroma of fresh mowed hay. Lacking the flowery hop that I have come to expect from a Czech Pils.
A soft beer in terms of mouthfeel. This has a lot of the elements of an inexpensive macro: grainy, a relatively harsh aftertaste that doesn’t really feature much hops. I like the texture--a bit richer than most pilsners.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12-oz can into a pilsner glass. This was a nice golden color with great clarity and a nice fluffy white head. A nice malty aroma and light floral hops. Biscuit malt taste, spicy hops and a nice bitterness on the finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Woooo, beer in a can, right up my alley. Smells a little better than cheap pale american ubiquitous lager but it does look the same. First taste is pilsner sharp bite, short but prodding. Slightly below average carbonation. Bitter hop bite lingers and builds in the back of the throat. Mind you, not an ale bite, a lager pilsner bite. Alky becomes more apparent as the session continues. Overall, neeeds a few more manners for a lager lover. Sawz away!
