COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hallertauer hops from the Yakima Valley of Washington State give this English style pale ale its distinctive flavor and hoppiness. A large amount of malted barley is used in the brewing process which gives Chukkar Ale a full, rich body and a relatively high alcohol content.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy light brown with some light orange tinges around the sides of the glass. A soft thin white head died within less than a minute. Mild stringy lacing slid into the body. The smell seemed to have had English malts up front with a light bitter grassy hoppiness running underneath. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. Overall, I say this was a decent English Pale ale to have again.

Pours copper/amber with a think off white head. Smells earthy, dusty, some resiny hints. Tastes lightly earthy and spicy with a tangy finish.

Generally plain beer. Bitter withou much flavour, hops variety is too bitter would be better with a floral hops.

Nsanders (488) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Tap. Resinous, light lemon, rich malts and crackers. Moderately sweet, followed by moderately bitter. Medium body with oily feel. Closest thing to Summit EPA I have tasted.

Gription79 (2246) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 31, 2012
On drat at the pub. Yet another diacetyl bomb like the other five I have tried so far. Spicy hops and grain malts accompany the diacetyl. Meh.

Ratman197 (9648) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
Growler poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness, light pine and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, light orange zest, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering moderatly bitter finish.

Best of a mediocre bunch at the Firehouse. Clear, deep golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of pine and grass. Taste is balanced bitterness with decent body.

This beer does not seem to fall into any distinct category. Although I did enjoy the beer, I found it hard to rate higher because of its confusing existence. Although it is defined by the brewpub as an ale it seems to reside somewhere in between the other varieties firehouse offers. The palate and aroma make up for the mediocre appearance and overall the beer was rated well due to its general pleasing nature. This beer is significantly lighter than what the bartenders and fact sheets at he brewery alledge

PapaSkeetSkeet (808) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Single hopped with sterling if I remember correctly (I guess the hop bill varied from batch to batch). The hop aroma/flavor was interesting berries (not blueberry though) and floral/orange. Unfortunately there was a big harsh hop bitterness that I did not appreciate- it masked the delicacy of the hop flavor and was somewhat unpleasant in general. It was overly sweet/thick as well, could have used more attenuation.
