COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 2, 2010
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.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JUL 29, 2010
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 (5875) - 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.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Can at 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar in St. Louis. The beer is a clear dark copper color with a thin and foamy light beige head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is equally hoppy and malty, along with a hint of fruit. Medium body with a piney hops character and sweet toasted malt and fruit flavors. The finish is moderately hoppy with a lingering bitterness. An interesting sort of hybrid but just a little above average overall.

csbosox (1216) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 25, 2010
I have enjoyed a couple four packs of this beer already. Dark copper color with a one finger, cream colored head. Earthy, floral hops driven aroma with background hints of citrus, biscuit, rye and a touch of dark caramel. The bitterness is fairly aggressive. Earthy, floral hops, dark toasted and nutty graininess in the flavor. The bitterness lingers. Easy to drink and full of flavor.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Tasted 7/9/10. Pint Can. Filtered yet hazy with a ruby amber hue. Thick and dence bone white head. Soapy grassy hops with a sweet caramel undertone. Nice toasty malts. Medium to full bodied with flavors of caramel malts and resinous hops. Good body and great balance. Mildly sweet and sticky to offset the bitterness. Mild effervescence. Decent stuff.

thegreenrooster (3087) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a sweet sticky malt followed by a hop presence. Flavor is earthy malt with a nice hop to round things out. Leaves a little dark fruit on the tounge as this goes down. Decent example of the style.

Strykzone (4478) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Tangerine color with a nice tan head. In a 16 oz. can. I found this to be well balanced, if a bit to the malty side. Nice fruit, a nice varied hop profile, and that sweet malt. It makes for a very nice beer.

topherh (1907) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2010
16 oz can pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is bready malt and lots of pine, citrusy, grassy hops. Flavor is big piney hops, with just enough malt.
