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.

Can; purchased at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Pours a nearly-clear dark gold with a frothy white head that slowly recedes leaving behind patchy lace. The nose is pretty muted: lightly sweet biscuity malt with just a hint of earthy/grassy hops. Light-bodied with soft effervescence and a crisp, drying, mildly bitter finish. The flavor is a round/solid pils malt body with a surprisingly bitter grassy counterbalance that isnít nearly as prevalent on the nose. (Curiously, they get a flavor from the Saaz that I havenít ever tasted in another pilsener before. Itís still "grassy" but itís like a different species of grass...itís difficult to describe.) This beer grew on me as I got deeper into the glass, but it certainly didnít "wow" me.

Canned. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a sticky, well-retained cap of white head. The aroma picked up ground lemon rind, floral, and black peppery notes over a soft pale malt and bready base.. juicy and well-presented. The flavor opened with tangy lemony notes, rolling into a thicker honey and pale malt base.. peppery spices were laced throughout.. finished with some sticky malts plus refreshing lemon and spice. Light-medium bodied, but it got caught up at a few points on the palate.. flow was just OK.. overall a tasty brew that Iíd drink again.

12 oz can. Pours a pale gold with a small, foamy, white head. Mild malt aroma with crisp hop notes. A little grass and mineral in the nose as well. Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel. Pleasing hop bitterness tries to offset all of the malt sweetness, but doesnít quite get the job done. Light notes of grass and a touch of lemon on the palate too. Short finish. An okay pils.

Clear golden yellow with a medium quickly fading white topper. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malt, mild floral hops and a touch of pepper. Taste is grassy as well with some sweet malt mixed in. Pretty easy to drink with a hoppy finish.

A very tasty pilsener done just right. Nice balance of hops and malt. Good color and mouth feel.

Oskar has let me down. I was very surprised at the cheap taste of this beer. Something in it reminded me of malt liquor in a brown bag. I am a fan of Daleís, Gordon, Ten Fiddy, but not this stuff. I didnít find any of the great pils aromas, quickly bitting bitterness that fades to become herbal spices against sweet golden malts. It just wasnít there. It reminded me of corn laden, industrial lager. Sorry, I donít think Iíll be comign back to revisit this any time soon.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Can. Poured a crystal clear yellow color with an inch and a half thick, rocky white head that steadily receded to a bubbly layer while leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma of light pilsner malt, some sweet honey, light orange, and some spicy, grassy hops. Crisp, lightly spicy entry with some orange flesh, a bit of sweet honey, and graham cracker lead into a rather spicy hoppiness with a light grassy character that finishes lightly dry. Soft carbonation and a bit heavier mouth feel than most pilsners. Overall, a pretty drinkable beer, but it seems a bit spicier and heavier than other, more enjoyable examples of the style.

Nice beer! Nice golden yellow color, foamy white head. Aroma has straight up grassy spicy stinky saaz, malt notes were bready and soda cracker. Well rounded flavors, sweet grains and spicy hops, balanced finish. Less bitter than alot of pilsners but an excellent hot weather drinker.

Bold golden yellow beer pours with a 1/2 white head, settling to a thin film. Moderately carbonated. Sweet grain aroma. Taste starts with the bittering hops and rolls off to honey, and a strong backend bitter finish. Good strong beer, while still maintaining drinkability... did you hear that budlight?
