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.

phaleslu (6281) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Can thanks to LtDan. Really? A 7.3% 93IBU ESB? Pours with a hazed amber-orange hue and a tan head that fades in the time it takes to write this sentence. Aroma of hops: pine, orange peel, toffee and cake. Smells a bit like a faded DIPA. Taste is hoppy, pine, bitter, malty. A bit astringently bitter. Some orange. Kind of a messy/faded IPA more than a bitter, although there is plenty of lingering bitterness. Malt profile is nice though. Bready with some caramel on the finish. Clean on that account. Even if the brewer was going for something else, this comes across as a faded and underattenuated IPA.

(16oz can thanks to Mora2000) clear rich amber, few khaki bubbles. Nose of melon, light funk, rye, and bready. Taste of bitter pine, unsweet grain, grapefruit rind oils. Soft carbonation with a spicy rye linger.

Pours a lovely hazy brown/orange. Almost pink in certain light. Nice pub ale with a bitter touch and a nice alcohol kick to it.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2010
(can) orange amber with small white head. Piney hop aroma. Flavor is piney hops, biscuit malt. Pretty good, but hardly an ESB.

From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Bitter hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Can sampled at Magic City Brewfest. Pours orangey amber. Aroma is lots of biscuity malt and some grassy, floral hops. Flavor is well balanced but not particularly "big." Pretty sessionable, except for the highish ABV.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Draft sample. Copper in colour with medium/smooth carbonation. Aromas are of muted sweet orange, and black pepper. Thick pale malt upfront in the mouth along with pine resin, and fruity C-hop notes which come through more as it warms out. Solid bitterness. Nothing really pops here, and the body is a bit on the thick side. Ok-ish.

Ungstrup (29164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Can. A hazy amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemony hops, straw, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.
