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.

Can pours a hazy deep brownish amber with a smaller bubbly off white lacing head. Aroma of nice floral and citrusy hop notes. Really hoppy for an ESB. Getting some tea, toffee and nuts. Flavor of toasted malt, tea, floral and orange hop notes.

Aurelius (4604) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Cloudy, dark tea brown-read with a light bone-colored head. Mild, slighty off AIPA aroma. Balanced. Woody, citrus, lightly sweet, fairly bitter, grapefurit and citrus pith. Medium to medium heavy body. Well done. On tap, Flying Saucer, KC.

vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours crystal clear deep amber with a hefty tan head. The aroma gas toasted bready malt that is super clean, light cream and cotton candy with spicy / piny hops. Medium rough grainy body that gets a bit smoother on the finish and has semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a very earthy rough taste. It is very dry with some caramel in there and the finish brings in some pine and wood. Well made, but it is a bit on the rough side and not something Iíll grab too often when Iím picking up a Tallgrass 4 pack.

ben4321 (4555) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Location: 16 oz can from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 11/14/11

Aroma: The nose is rather hoppy, with some nice pine, floral, bread, and citrus notes to it
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear caramel-brown color with a big, thick, foamy off-white head
Flavor: Tastes kind of one-dimensional bitter with lots of resin, floral, and citrus, light malt backing
Palate: The body is medium-full, it is a little sticky and fairly creamy on the mouth, with a lengthy, dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a bitter Bitter. It really isnít a typical British style ESB, but more of an amped up American-style take that doesnít feel on style, maybe closer to an IPA then an ESB. Still an interesting beer though. It is the best thing Iíve tried from Tallgrass thus far, and I think Iíll drink it again.

From a quarter pound can, heheh. First off, this is not yer typical, mild, enjoyable ESB. Somewhat revolting tripel esb aroma. Cloudy brownish lighter look. Expensive, may I add at $3. Big malty alky blasty thingy yippeee. Nssty blastic all across the nation ripping across my taste buds. Forgot about the CO2 because of the overly giant alky trippel ESB impact. Probably should not be in this style; Iíll say the style is strong english ale. Building astringent sides and back of the tongue. Mouth coating slam that only a real beer drinker could appreciate. Finish is same. I think Iím getting a little dizzy from this can. Yes, a real MANZ beer. Sickning cloying bitter nasty mess, on style for a trippel bitter.

wlajwl (4452) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Aroma is a mix of caramel malts and yeast/citrus hops. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, yeast, citrus and a bitter but not too dry finish. Interesting, a very balanced but not too sweet IPA.

obguthr (4451) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Can: Peppery hay nose with toffee undertones. Clear copper, medium yellow head, good lacing. Flavor is heavily dominated by tea, but clover honey is also prominent. Grain notes are occasionally detected. Lilly and marigold finish. Alcohol not noticeable. Traditional and authentic British aromas and flavors. Carbonation and strength is more of the American flavor. Quite an interesting interpretation of an ESB

travita (4336) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Clear, amber, cream colored head. The smell is hops, citrus, pine, loaded with hops. Good. The taste is hops, fruits, citrus, pine, touch of malt balance.

Pours a murky orange amber with creamy sandstone head. Nose is piney nd resinous with lots of bready malt and biscuity character and some malt sweetness. Piney hop bite and slight green astringency.
