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.

Yellow, clear, some golden hues. Very plain, average body; some lemon, with grassy hops. A bit of butter in the aroma? (from growler at RBSG 07).

Approximately 1.5 oz. sample at the Grand Tasting of the RateBeer Summer Gathering 2007 in the Twin Cities, MN on July 23, 2007. This was the twenty-first of 26 beers that I sampled and rated during the tasting. Thanks to Skyview for bringing this one. Floral aroma features apricot, strawberry, lemon, and orange scents. Pours a clear, brilliant gold with little head. Sweet, fruity flavor. Tastes almost like a fruit beer. I expect an English Pale Ale to have a bitter hops presence, but if it was there, it wasn’t very prominent in this example. Undercarbonated, but it was poured from a growler, so that’s to be expected. Medium body. Soft in the palate. Chukkar is not a bad beer, but it smells and looks better than it tastes.

Good, light malt flavor and aroma. Orange color. Mild malt flavor and classic English pale ale. Reminded me a little of a marzen.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet sugary caramel aroma. Dry grainy floral hops flavor with some light caramel in the background.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2007
RBSG 07 Grand Tasting beer #4. Light gold pour with no head. Faint hop on the nose. Malty taste that vaguely reminded me of oatmeal bitter finish.

RBSG 2007. Another SoDak from Skyview. Growler. Copper color with no head. Slightly hopped aroma. The malt is a nice mix of bitter and sweet: not so balanced it isn’t either, but there are definite sweet hits and bitter hits. Slight caramel finish.

Out of the growler from skyview at RBSG ’07. Golden orange color with very little head out of the growler. Floral nose with lots of grain. There is a raw graininess with a dry piney hop note. The finish tends toward the grassy.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Draft at brewpub. Copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with the same balanced finish of moderate duration. Good brew that appears to be a local pick.
