COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeff’s 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 it’s 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. What’s a stoop? Well, it’s a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

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.

16oz can. Large off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, bread, some orange. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, grapefruit, some orange. Medium body, some chewiness, light acidity. Not an ESB as I think of one.

Hazy copper with a medium beige rocky top, slowly fading. Aroma of heavy grains and mild resinous and grassy hops. Taste of caramel, mild fruit, citrus and lightly toasted malt. Mild bitter and fruity finish.

The Oasis has a brown amber color with a substantial(but not overwhelming) head. The aroma is of strong hops, unfortunately a little soapy. Fortunately, this is not present when sipping. The taste of the beer is rather bitter, but otherwise very balanced. The beer has a good, thick body to it as well. Overall, definitely an interesting beer to try, one that I wouldn’t have expected from the can it came in!

drjay44 (2584) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Can. Shared with several others at brew club. Pours a medium, lasting off white head, over an amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is light citrus and pine, light cereal, a smidgen of coffee....taste is minimal toffee/caramel, cereal, malts light citrus, with a medium bitter finish....mout feel medium, carbonation adds a lovely foamy sensation. This is well balanced, with a hop back bone that is more layered than the malts. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

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.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Super cloudy amber orange with a thick sudsy white head. Nose shows lots of sweet caramel malt, some piney hops, light butter. Flavor is similar with heavy buttery caramel malts, with lots of piney and herbal bitterness in the finish. Oily palate. Seems too heavy for the style and more like an american strong ale. Oh I now I see this a double ESB. Makes sense. Still not a huge fan.

Pours a hazy thick reddish brown. Aroma of floral spicy hops. Taste is malty and hoppy. The blend tastes like tea. Interesting.
