Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeffís favorite homebrew recipes. Here at Tallgrass we love malt and we love hops, and this beer has both of them in record quantities; well, at least records for our baby brewery. At a hefty 7.2% ABV and 93 IBU, Oasis is a big beer that has to be priced a bit higher than our regular line of beers. We think that once you taste the over-the-top hops and surprisingly sturdy malt backbone you will realize why itís worth it. Definitely not a fruit-extract seasonal shandy, this beer is meant to be enjoyed on the back porch, the front porch, or even on the stoop. Whatís a stoop? Well, itís a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

On tap pours deep red orange, aroma is fairly weak but has some pine and biscuit, with sweet caramel. Big pine and resin up front with a touch of lemon less into biscuit and a bitter finish. Excellent esb!

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2011 Can. Pour is copper red and hazy tough to see though it, and soapy tight head with solid lacing. Aroma has big malt and faint grapefruit. Taste starts out sweet malt and finishes with bitter hops, I really notice the hops. Palate is sticky and chaulky with a dry finish. Tasty!

May be the best session beer I have ever had. Awesome balance. Great dark-chocolate type back of tongue bitterness. This is the beer that saved this brewery from being written off from me. Made me re-try and re-evaluate their lineup. Big fan. They just havenít made that "it" beer. Yet.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 New rating, about the same even though the can sat around a while. There were a few chunks, but nothing bothersome. Medium copper colored body with a very light khaki head. The nose is caramel with some notes of bread and peanuts. There is also some black tea. The taste is largely black tea and toffee. The finish is raw potato skins.

unclemike (2895) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 7, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 Clear deep amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty, phenolic aroma and flavor. Medicinal with notes of bandage and toffee. Peppery hops. Medium-bodied with intermediate carbonation. Mildly sweet, medicinal finish

This is my first beer from Kansas. The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some toffee and a little bit of chocolate. The flavor is just as good. In addition to a lot of toffee, I get some grassy hops and a dry powdered chocolate flavor. The beer has low bitterness and is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the better ESBs that I have tried.

From a four pack bought at Jensenís in Lawrence. Malty and somewhat sweet. Caramel. Significant hops presence. Good ESB.

16oz. can. Earthy, toasty, lightly sweet, dark caramel malt aroma, with touches of citric, floral, leafy hop and a certain faint background fruitiness. Clear deep amber color, like strong iced tea, with a fine, uneven, off-white head and some rather impressive lacing. The hop character is predominant here, with strongly piney, earthy, almost woody notes, also features a good amount of darkly toasted, sweet malts towards the finish, which grows increasingly bitter and fruity. There are hints of blueberry-like fruit here and there, surprisingly. Plenty of fine-bubbled effervescence here, which along with the resinous feel from the copious hops lends a smooth, refreshing feel, coupled with a medium-full body. A bit unusual, but tasty, full-flavored and satisfying, ultimately.

16 oz can. Poured a dark orangish color with a finger white head. This left lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma was caramel, pines, and bitterness. Flavor was sweet up front with bitterness in the aftertaste. A great beer from a small place. Its the second beer Iíve had from tallgrass and both have been above par.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
16 oz. can from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a cloudy, dull amber color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, wood, toasted malts, and wet leaves. Flavor of piney, leafy hops, wood, toasted malts, tea, and rye. Light-medium bodied, with mild carbonation and a leafy mouthfeel. Certainly not as sessionable or easy-drinking as a true English ESB.
