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.

Thanks to dougofthefuture for sending this in Blind BIF 5. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours a bright copper color with a bit of a reddish hue. Big white head with some spotty lacing and a thin cap throughout. The nose is not good. Really light with a bit of grain. A bit grainy. Smells kind of like an old IPA. Grain tannin. The flavor has loads of grain and a good amount of grain husk. By good, I mean a lot, not that its a little less than great. Astringent. Hard to guess on this right now. Itís tasting more like a bad IPA. Bitterness in the finish with a dry finish. No hop flavor thought. Not a fan. Perhaps a kill shot. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-14-2011

Smells like honey, hops. Tastes pretty bitter. Hops, golden raisins, pretty alcoholic, tastes like a can.

Can courtesy of jake65, thanks! Pours opaque honey with super sticky buttercream head, aroma is heavy resin and caramel, heavy caramel mid malt with sturdy bitterness throughout, resiny bitterness lingers on the palate, ball buster of a brew

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.
