Brewed with all imported English malts. Tall Stacks Ale has a vibrant red color and a unique malt profile, making this an extremely smooth and drinkable ale. Sparing amounts of hops are used to give this beer delicate hop notes in the finish.

Draft to pint. Looks fine; a transparent amber with ample head. Smells mildly malty and doughy, but pretty weak. Tastes mildly sweet and malty; lacking flavor though. Mouthfeel is average. Meh.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep red amber with small off-white head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, light fruit. Flavor follows suit, with some hops and toast. Smooth palate, sweet, too watery.

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Amber light foamy head and lace. Light malt aroma. Flavor of light malt with a decent finishing bitter. A tad foamy and thin. Not bad.

Draft @ Cincy brewpub. Pours a reddish amber color with a good sized head. The aroma is lightly toasted caramel malt and a touch of fruit. The flavor is more caramel malt, light fruit, and a small amount of bitterness in the finish. No one is pushing the envelope, but this is decent enough.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Medium to dark amber, malty nose, medium head. More balanced toward the malts, sweet, caramel notes, clean body.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Pours a nice amber color, with decent head. Nice malty aroma and flavor, a pretty good amber.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2008
Pours brown in color with some ruby highlights. Nice inch high head sits atop the beer. Smell is all malt. Taste is nice malts and is medium on the mouthfeel. Decent beer. Easily the best of the three that I had tonight, but that is not saying alot. Decent.

Draught at the Brewpub. Short and sweet... Close your eyes and imagine a handcrafted Killians. There is Tall Stacks for you. Which is, by the way, ok in my book.

garrison (749) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2007
From an on tap draft mug at the brewpub - This one poured an amber brew with a tall white head and a faint aroma. Tastewise, it seemed like just another watered-down mass market red ale, but a tad fresher.
