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.

Pours a hazy reddish-orange color. Moderate tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is orange and pine. Flavor is a nice mix of bready malt, citrus and pine and grassy hops. Medium moutfheel and good amount of hop bitterness in aftertaste. Slightly dry finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Tasted on tap at the Flying Saucer in Kansas City, Missouri. Orange-ish appearance. Medium creamy head, bitter aroma. Delicious bitter taste despite alcohol. Great!

nsquishee (598) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2010
First had at the St. Paul Highland Fest beer dabbler. Have since had in cans from local stores. Deep, malty aroma with notes of caramel and citrus. Deep amber color with a lacy, yet thick head. Palate starts out very smooth and malty, and finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness. Very nice offering. I need to try the Tallgrass IPA and stout.

Pours a nice amber with a thick 3/4" head. Nice hop aroma, with a nice balance of grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied with a nice tasty balance and smooth palate.

Can. Poured orange with a creamy off-white head that has some lasting and left good lace. Plenty of citrus rind in the aroma with a caramel background. The flavor was much the same. Medium body and medium bitterness. Very enjoyable!

Floral hoppy aromas and flavors. Great head retention and lacing. This ESB is better than some IPA’s. Overall a very very good ESB.

Deep rich muddy ruby tinted body with a copper glow and a thick, soapy deep tan head that exploded out of the can, but died shortly afterwards - odd. Aroma of fresh hops, alcohol, malt, caramel and then more grapefruity hops. Medium to Full-bodied; Assertive grapefruit and piney hops with a touch of earthy and caramel malt with a lot of alcohol and a touch of sweetness at the end. Aftertaste shows a vague bit of spices, a little malt, a ton of alcohol and the nice bittering hoppiness that people (including myself) enjoy so much. Overall, a nice and flavourful, potent, complex and refreshing beer - all in a can, as a rarer style! I sampled this 500 mL can purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 27-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 29-September-2011.

Cloudy coppery color with a thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Hoppy with a bitter finish, but not as fully hopped as an IPA. A very interesting ESB style that I will likely pick up again.

Firm, medium statured tan head with good retention and alot of coating lace, sticky.Hazy, amber/copper color. Nose is juicey, piney and a little pissy, slight malt notes, bit O resin. Med/full body, juicey, light resin, soft carbonation, lil chewy. Lightly sweet malts, caramel, lil grain,toast backed by a nice juicey hop charge. Bit of pine, citrus, gtrapefruity and earthyness, leafy too, lil cat pee??. nice strong finish,lasting, good bite and hop flavors. Well done! Think i,d drag it out of the Bitter class and just IPA it. Props to MOTORTODDHEAD for the can! Sweet bro!

arkurzynski (1520) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2012
16oz can thanks to motortoddhead. Deep amber/copper with creamy tan head, slightly hazy. Big citrus hopping with some caramel malt tucked in. Brief glimpse of the toasted/caramel malt that gives way to solid citrus bitterness that ramps up toward the finish. Dry finish from the hops. Tons of residual citrus that makes you think you’ve been eating lemon candy. Only complaint is that the mouthfeel was a bit creamy, which detracted a bit from the refreshing aspects of this beer.
