COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Nose is corn, malt, grass, some hops, and a lagery aroma. Flavor is much the same with some sweetness and grassiness. Finishes with a malty corn finish. Interesting.

12oz can-pours a thin dissipating white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain/husky and at the beginning some banana. Taste is sweet light malt, some spice hops. A pretty malty pilsner lacking on carbonation. Thanks jwc215 for sharing this one.

can. Poured a nice, slightly golden yellow, with a very nice white frothy head on it. Smells of tree nuts, distinct yeast aromas, hints of grass and earthiness,along with hops, and malt. The beer really through me with the mouth feel, which was very full and almost creamy, but crisp and short like a pilsner should be. It had flavors of banana bread (as it warmed), some sort of nut, good malt and grain also. Because it was not as thin as most pils are i really enjoyed this beer.

12oz can. Pours a clear yellow gold with many fizzy bubbles eternally rising from the bottom. The beer pours with a thick white head that is also eternal - fades into an immovable 1/2 layer of beaten egg-whites but with larger (but not soapy-looking) bubbles. The aroma is very grainy with some malt sweetness, faint grassy and noble hops, and light notes of creamed corn. The flavor starts crisp and malty with a decent pilsner malt character that is bready, slightly grainy, and lightly sweet. The sweetness subsides and makes way for floral hop flavors. At mid-palate the beer is a comfortable balance of Saaz hops spicy bitterness with grainy malts. The finish is somewhat hoppy, slightly corny, grainy, and somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is crisp and highly carbonated with a medium body that feels watery on parts of the tongue and almost oily on others. Overall, a mediocre beer for Oskar Blues - I’ve loved all of their others and was hoping for a hoppy pilsner. This is a middle of the road brew - more authentic than, for instance, continental lagers that sometimes use Pilsner on their label, but still a bit of a let-down. Unlike their other beers, this tastes like beer that you’d *expect* to find in a can.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Can, courtesy sebletitje. Clear golden pour, bubbly lacing, no real head. Corny sweet nose, grain, bitter, flowery notes, some dryness to it. Grain, cereal and biscuit flavors, some cocoa as well, although a but muted. Refreshing and very drinkable.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2009
can, pours clear golden, white head. Aroma is grainy, slight hoppy touch, leaning on the corn. Taste, hoppy, sweet sugary mouthfeel , medium carbonation, malty. Not bad, but really nothing special, and a lot better than the average pilsener.

HonkeyBra (3372) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Yellow pour with big white head. Aroma of pee, bad malt, some pear maybe. Flavor is thin and kind of bad. The hops don’t seperate from the malt. A big mess of a pils.

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.
