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.

I am so jones’n for a good pils/lager; just like I am ready for a decent white wine. I am tired of winter, and need some summer libations to lift my spirit. Light straw color liquid with a moderate white head; nothing extraordinary, quite lager like. Decent lace as the head starts to slowly settle. Light pale malt and hints of herbal to floral hops. Nothing to bold, but certainly lager-like, clean and clear. Light sweet pale malt in the start is quickly whisked away with some sweet floral hops. A bit thick in the sweetness at times, but only a minor fault in my book. Mildly salty in the finish and linger. A salty dough/biscuit flavor. The finish and linger are like a big soft pretzel with a touch of herbs. A decent lager that I will revisit this summer.
