COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

Our friends at Oskar Blues pioneered great beer in a can and, as mutual members of the canned craft club, this partnership was a perfect fit. CANfusion is a coming together—a fusion, if you will—of flavors from across the spectrum of brewing: spicy rye, tangy wheat and a bright citrusy hop aroma.

Oskar Blues is the granddaddy of canned craft beer. Like us, they have a fun-loving passion for the outdoors and bikes. It was a natural fit for them to adopt cans as a portable, durable way to tote their favorite beer on the trail, and in the process they paved the way for all other craft brewers to follow.

(Can, 0.355 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, molasses, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A decent interpretation of a bock.

355ml can - thanks VastActiv! (6-:3:5:2+:11=2.7)
Sweet porridgy aroma. Even more porridgy taste. Sticky and harsh drying palate. No balance. Messy. Sticky. No thanks. Not getting the mammi or breadiness I like from rye, and not getting anything I like that’s bocky.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2015
I enjoy rye in beer because I think it adds a depth and spice that is hard to find elsewhere. With this brew the rye added a nice alternative to the regular sweet malty bock that is all too common. You get the initial caramel malt profile with a good helping of earthy hops but the middle gets all spicy and rustic from the rye. An interesting twist.

firstsip (716) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Can (~1 year old). Mildly hoppy nose. Surprising hop character; virtually no rye notes. A mild caramel, raisin sweetness. Overall meh.
