Notes/Commercial Description:
Our friends at Oskar Blues pioneered great beer in a can and, as mutual members of the canned craft club, this partnership was a perfect fit. CANfusion is a coming together—a fusion, if you will—of flavors from across the spectrum of brewing: spicy rye, tangy wheat and a bright citrusy hop aroma.

Oskar Blues is the granddaddy of canned craft beer. Like us, they have a fun-loving passion for the outdoors and bikes. It was a natural fit for them to adopt cans as a portable, durable way to tote their favorite beer on the trail, and in the process they paved the way for all other craft brewers to follow.

Beer Review #800!

Appearance - Pours clear and copper in color, with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention results in a broken layer of surface suds. Small, spotty lacing with decent stick.

Smell - Aroma hits on notable caramel and grapefruit character with touches of pineapple. Also some peppery spice sitting beneath.

Taste - Starts with a bit of caramel malt, backed by a strong presence of pineapple and orange hop character. Light peppery spice and citrus pith on the finish... and a vague watermelon in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fair carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy.

Overall - Delicious beer. Not sure it really fits as a bock style-wise, but American craft is gonna do its own thing. Frankly, drinks closer to your average modern Pale than anything. The other can in the SN mix pack, and frankly both were pretty close in flavor, with the rye being the big difference.

Poured into a becker a deep copper color with a sticky full one finger head atop that slowly settled into a frothy mass.some spicy rye and light caramel notes in the nose,faint leafy hops.A nice flavor profile with the spiciness from the rye mixed with almost a whiskey-like note,not overly sweet and a decent amount of leafy hop drying in the finish.This is a solid bock and the rye plays a real role,nice job here.

This beer was poured into a pint glass. It was a dark amber color with a minimal head.

Aroma of spicy rye. Some citrus.

Spicy rye taste. A little grapefruit. Caramel and bread.

Sweet and malty.

Not bad, not great. In the meh category. I wouldn't want to drink this again.

12 oz can. Pours clear light copper amber with a huge creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - bready rye with a little fruit.

The flavor is rye and sweet nutty malts and a little sweet caramel and fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid rye beer, but not much of a bock.

This is honestly a solid beer, everything about it is fruity. The hops and the malt are great together and reminds me of a cigar city IPA. Not sure why this isn't rated higher

12oz can fresh pour. thick amber with some orange and red hints. head is not gone in 30 seconds. smells of pecan, spice, candied sugar, rye, and grain. Taste is quite sweet, plum wine flavor, with hints of spice and hops. This beer has floral hop tones, and a fairly boozy bock style. fruit character here with the hop profile. The rye is barely on the nose and palate, and rounds out the booze and light body. Mouthfeel is light, with a touch of spice and hops, on the back of the mouth. Pair with pretzels, smoked trout, smoked sausages, and horseradish.
