2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with a wispy white head that dissipates, leaving sudsy lace. The nose has some light lemon with small hop notes, and maybe some detergent or corn. The flavors are a bit unimpressive, dominated by Saaz hops, with some corn, malt, hay and other grains lurking underneath. The finish is predominated by Saaz again. The mouthfeel is zesty, yet dull, with a medium body. Not a whole lot going on here, and certainly not the best Oskar Blues offering Iíve had. Funny how the style thatís best suited for canning (rather than bottling) is the one that turns out to be one of the lesser brews offered by the canning specialist.

12oz can into a pilsner glass. Pours clear yellow (go figure!) with a small white, bubbly, and quickly disappearing head. The aroma is foam, soap, corn, and grains. The flavor is cream, corn, grains, malt, and a hint of caramel. The palate is light and smooth with medium-high carbonation that goes down easy. Probably a top seller at their pub.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy honey gold with a mid-sized white head. Smells like extremely light hops with some lemon sorbet. Slightly grassy. Really lacking in flavor. Thereís a slight malty sweetness, with a bit of grain and an herbal note (not quite hops)... thatís about it. It isnít terrible, but I wonít ever buy it again.

Draft at brewpub...pours a straw yellow brown with a thin white head... Aroma of grassy saaz hop aroma... Crisp and clean flavor with light grain and a saaz hop grassy finish. Drinkable to the say the least.

In tap. Pours a light bright yellow color with a thick fluffy white foam that leaves tons of lacing all the way down. Smell has a light hop character with toasted grains and hints of lemon grass. Some spice and malt can be found. Taste is toasted grain and cereal flavor with some malt sweetness in the finish. A bit of hop bitterness initially which slowly evens out with a light spice flavor. Light body with lots of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a pale light golden body with a tiny fizzy white head. Weak grassy aroma with some slight hop notes. Flavor is somewhat spicy with a nice hop bite. Crisp easy drinking pils. I thought this was better just having a few outta the can. Not bad.

This one poured a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was a bit grassy somewhat sweet and some hop spice as well. Flavor was a bit upfront for a pilsner, grassy and sweet with some lingering bitterness. Not great but decent for the style.
