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.

Can shared at the September 2010 Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a slightly hazy orange amber with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was nice pine with some cereal backing it up. Flavor had quite strong pine that mellowed slightly to allow the cereal backbone to come out.

DocLock (10702) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Cans from Capone’s and Blue Dog. Pours copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is grainy caramel malt, brown sugar, hops. Tastes of big caramelly malt, hoppy, with some florals. Comes across the palate like an imperial amber.

cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2010
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!

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Tap. Masterfully brewed. Dark orange and hazy. Pillowy white head. Nose is hop and grapefruit. Resiny taste - citrus, grapefruit, and tea. Just excellent.

alexsdad06 (10436) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2011
16 oz. can from Root Cellar. Pours a clear deep amber/copper color with a medium sized creamy ivory head. The aroma has grass, some citrus and resiny hops and a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is toasted bread with hints of caramel, light citrus, grass, with decent bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. This is a drinkable option with a slight bump for the can. Golf season is here and you can’t have too many options in cans.

3.2
phaleslu (10274) - 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.

3.8
KyotoLefty (10265) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2011
500 ml Can. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, grass, earthy hops. Nice, glowing, red-orange. Sweet luscious malt flavor, great bitterness from English hops, earthy and a bit dirty. Good stuff. Very drinkable, rich and fun but not heavy or boozy. A nice ramped-up ESB.

3.8
onceblind (9705) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Slightly murky dark copperish orange with a foamy off white head. Aroma of toast, dark caramel, and a big grassy hop tone. Taste was big and toasty with a big toffee sweetness. Finished by some grassy dry hoping. Bitter, malty, and caramelish dry. Complex and interesting.
