3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Batch #2. Canned on: 02/27/09. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a smallish off-white head. Crisp aroma of corn, wheat, lemons, and some grapefruit. Crisp and thin-bodied with a high level of carbonation. LOADS of sweet corn to start things off flavor-wise. A bit of caramel in there at the start too. Transitions to some crisp wheatiness. Finishes with some light lemony and grapefruity flavors. I had hoped for much more coming from this brewery. At least it’s refreshing and clean tasting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color. Grassy aroma, with a hint of fruits. The flavor is clean, with an after taste that is a little metallic. (more a function of the beer than the can. I’ve had enough OB beers that I love the can) This could use a bit more hop presence, but is a pretty good pils. I love these guys. Please, make a really good Bavarian Hefe in a can....NOW!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(can - 12 oz) Clear golden color with a very thin layer of white foam. Aroma is lightly bitter with some corn, malt, and very light hops. Flavor is rather malty and very lightly bitter. Hops are very hard to detect. Mostly dry malts and stale grass. Crisp finish, but mediocre at best. First Oskar Blues beer I’ve had that I wasn’t crazy about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Musty aroma with hints of apple. Bitter corn flake malt flavor with some fruit. Crisp, but nothing special. A bit watery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can shared by CaptainCougar. Light yellow with a thick, lasting head. Light grass, bread crust and some corn in the aroma. Lightly sweet, clean malt flavors and pretty light hops and bitterness. Light bodied with crisp, fine carbonation. Pretty bland and straight-forward actually; just light malt and maybe enough hops to add some balance but not really much character. Pretty nice for a helles maybe, where you wouldn’t expect hops, but this is a pils. A bit of a disappointment coming from these guys actually, when even their scottish ale is hoppy, but they can’t seem to find any room for hops in their pils.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks for sharing Mike- Rich yellow gold pour with a small white head. A Pils with subdued grain and hops, almost watered down. Smooth on the pallet but no flavor and for an Oskar it’s a bit of a let down, it’s a miss for this one.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brewed in the USA....... Pours a lite yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of flowers, grain and bread. Taste is much of the same with the addition of wheat. The mouthfeel was really bland and not quite what i expected. Oskar Blues makes some fantastic beers but this one fails miserably. :(

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared by BeerGestapo. Thanks Mike. Pours clear gold topped by a small white head. Leaves no lace. The nose and taste were both fairly bland grain with a slight floral component. It tastes old though I am sure it is not because they just started packaging this beer. I guess I have been spoiled by the wonderful selection of Pilsners we have in Pennsylvania. A rare disappointment from Oskar Blues.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Color was clear gold with not much head. Aroma was very bready, earthy and malty. Not much hops to me. Flavor was sessionable, but really not much opping or flavor. Bready malt and yeast predominate. Hint of earth. A bit disappointing.
