Taste & Aroma: The nose here is fluffy malt with a little bit of a hay teaser. Subtle aromas here. These are not bold banners to wave over a pilsner. Strange colors for a beer of this caliber and style to march under. Let’s see about the taste. This is an odd pilsner. Strangely sweet, with a tart middle, and a spicy hop bite towards the end. Odd pilsner indeed. This is sad to say about as much as a pilsner as Miller Lite claims to be. A slight disappointment.

Final Analysis: Perhaps a more pilsner characteristic is visible when drinking this on draught rather than from the can? Again, this was a bit of a disappointment considering that the Oskar Blues Brewery makes a fine product. Dale’s Pale Ale and Pinner are both brilliant. Perhaps on tap is the best way to have this beer? I’ll find out. For now, I can say this is a beer I won’t be having again soon.
