A 355ml can with a canned-on date of Oct 2013. Picked up from Trembling Madness in York a little while back.

Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A bright golden hue with faint haze and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of light malt with hints of floral hops, grass/hay, faint pepper, subtle grain and mild earthy yeast. Vaguely sweet. A nicely balanced lager with a hint of American character.

Tastes of light malt with floral hops and a crisp, dry finish. Notes of grain, noble hops, grass/hay, faint pepper, mild earthy yeast and a twinge of stewed hops. A delicate sweetness in the background, followed by a restrained, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with effervescent carbonation and good body for the style. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of grassy aromatic hops, subtle yeast and stewed leaves.

Pretty good - a nicely crafted lager. Looks the part, while the aroma and flavour have a satisfying blend of subtle noble hop notes and light malt. Perhaps a shade hoppier than a European pilsner would be, though nothing overwhelming. Decent body. The only thing lacking is the extra depth of character that comes from prolongued cellaring. A tasty brew that will quench a thirst - if you're looking for a decent lager then you could certainly do worse.

A. Nice light yellow color, white two finger fluffy head

S. Bitter hop smell, faint apple juice, funk

T. Nice malt, bitter @ first, quickly mellowing out, mild grain aftertaste

M. Smooth, crisp, & refreshing, clean enjoyable finish

O. I love Oskar Blues beers! One of my favorite brewery's, every beer I have tried has been above average - or excellent!

A: Pours a bright, lightly hazy deep gold color. The white head is initially tall and foamy, with medium-light consistency. Retention is solid, with the head gradually fading into a denser, craggier cap. Some decent splotches of lacing stick to the glass.

S: Some mildly grainy and doughy malt aromas up front. Definite notes of lager yeast - some very faint fruit punchy notes. Herbal and spicy hop notes are present, but not particularly robust.

T: Doughy, grainy, and somewhat bready malts up front. Medium sweetness. Hop bitterness adds some balance initially, adding some herbal and spicy flavors. A bit of lagery, yeasty roughness lurks in the background. The beer actually finishes sweeter than I was expecting.

M: Firm body for the style. Carbonation is medium. A drying finish.

O: This is solid American take on a Czech pils. Its complexity is lacking compared to some of the better European versions, but that doesn't make this a bad beer. It is a bit sweeter in the finish than I was expecting, and has a surprisingly full mouthfeel for the style.
