COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeffs 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 its 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. Whats a stoop? Well, its a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

Interesting that this is called an ESB on the can and an IPA here, because when we were drinking this I commented on what an IPA-ish ESB this is. So, yeah, this is like a full bodied, slightly malty IPA. I liked it. Thanks to theisti for the trade!

vyvvy (6248) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours crystal clear deep amber with a hefty tan head. The aroma gas toasted bready malt that is super clean, light cream and cotton candy with spicy / piny hops. Medium rough grainy body that gets a bit smoother on the finish and has semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a very earthy rough taste. It is very dry with some caramel in there and the finish brings in some pine and wood. Well made, but it is a bit on the rough side and not something Ill grab too often when Im picking up a Tallgrass 4 pack.

wlajwl (6196) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Aroma is a mix of caramel malts and yeast/citrus hops. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, yeast, citrus and a bitter but not too dry finish. Interesting, a very balanced but not too sweet IPA.

Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes clear amber with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and hops. Taste is floral hops, sweet malt and caramel. Decent bitterness.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2010
This is my first beer from Kansas. The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some toffee and a little bit of chocolate. The flavor is just as good. In addition to a lot of toffee, I get some grassy hops and a dry powdered chocolate flavor. The beer has low bitterness and is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the better ESBs that I have tried.

(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.

obguthr (6112) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Can: Peppery hay nose with toffee undertones. Clear copper, medium yellow head, good lacing. Flavor is heavily dominated by tea, but clover honey is also prominent. Grain notes are occasionally detected. Lilly and marigold finish. Alcohol not noticeable. Traditional and authentic British aromas and flavors. Carbonation and strength is more of the American flavor. Quite an interesting interpretation of an ESB

ben4321 (6100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Location: 16 oz can from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 11/14/11

Aroma: The nose is rather hoppy, with some nice pine, floral, bread, and citrus notes to it
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear caramel-brown color with a big, thick, foamy off-white head
Flavor: Tastes kind of one-dimensional bitter with lots of resin, floral, and citrus, light malt backing
Palate: The body is medium-full, it is a little sticky and fairly creamy on the mouth, with a lengthy, dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a bitter Bitter. It really isnt a typical British style ESB, but more of an amped up American-style take that doesnt feel on style, maybe closer to an IPA then an ESB. Still an interesting beer though. It is the best thing Ive tried from Tallgrass thus far, and I think Ill drink it again.
