COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John likes bees. Johns like of bees led him to hanging out with other people who like bees. Some of the other people who like bees work at The Field Museum. The Field Museum was opening a bistro and bar. John was opening a brewery. And that is pretty much the story of how Off Color and The Field Museum collaborated to make this crisp, clean pilsner with a dry-hopped bite far inferior to Sues.

tmoreau (4020) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2017
On tap at Ellyns Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL. and shaker served showing a clear & bright, light golden color, frothy, white head foam, and a sheet-like coating of spiraling lace. The nose was a light lager/pils scent, soft grain, and hints of honey sweetness and ripe lemon. Light to medium bodied, the taste followed similarly, with somewhat low carbonation, and modest but lingering, earthy bitterness. A sessionably accommodating Pils.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2017
3660 Off Color Tooth and Claw Ar- 6 Ap - 3 Fl - P - O - Rate Bright yellow color with a diminished white head. Scents of raw grain, pale malt, light citrus and grass. Light sweetness in the front, meet a rather sharp acidity/bitterness in the middle. Grassy and herbal hops (while typical in the pils, this is a little bit to the extreme not bad, but perhaps too distracting). Wintergreen and lemongrass come to mind. Could be a bit more crisp in the finish. The sweetness/citrus/bitterness all seem to clash.

nuplastikk (5961) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2015
12oz. Nails it. Awesome to see newish breweries like Off Color really making quality lagers like this. There is some nice zest, but it is traditional. noble hop style. Clean medium body, lots of excellent lager notes in the hay touched golden malt. Quality stuff, definitely one to scoop up if you a good Pils.
