Tallgrass Ale
(Tallgrass Brewing Company)

Once in awhile your palate asks for a break and a straightforward brew calls your name. Tallgrass Brewing's Ale might just be what the beer doctor ordered when this is the case. It's a malty delight with no frills, just all out goodness from their flagship brew. 

From the Tallgrass site:

"The distinctive look and taste of Tallgrass Ale comes from our unique blend of German, English, and American-style malts and a generous helping of both American and traditional English hops. These ingredients, our English brewer’s yeast, and the Flint Hills’ excellent brewing water gives Tallgrass Ale a distinctive, toffee-highlighted taste and smooth profile that is always drinkable."

Here we go...

Pour - dark, mahogany and quite clean. The head is quick to fade and before too long there is nothing left but the beer itself.

 

Aroma - toasted brown bread, dark roasted malt, chicory, coffee grounds and cocoa.

 

Taste - light and smooth on the tongue, not a lot of carbonation in this brew but it works well as the dominance is a strong, sweet malt profile. This is toasty and even has hints at smokiness. In the finish I get some chocolate mousse, cocoa powder and espresso (tiramisu?). Super easy to drink and very flavorful. 

 

Overall - malty goodness in a big can. This has a lot of flavor compared to others in this style category and certainly leans heavy on the malt side. If you like brown ales you'll love this brew. 

 

Would I buy more of it? - yes I would. I'm a big fan of this seemingly straightforward brew. What can I say, I like a lot of different styles.

 

Note - Tallgrass currently cans their IPAAleKöldOasisBuffalo Sweat and Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat beers. We're still working our way through all of them! The folks at Tallgrass are good people. Cheers!
