COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it. Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Australian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 40
Malts: 2 Row, Victory, Vienna & Munich
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Cascade & Galaxy

Meh, disappointed in a Tallgrass I’ve been looking forward to. Stick with their IPA and ESB.

16 oz. can courtesy of Tripplebrew, thanks. Pours hazy gold with white head into a lager glass. Spotty lace. Soft carbonation. Bread malt and citrus / grassy hop nose. Taste is subtle grassy hops with a moderate bitterness toward the finish. Overall impression is this is crisp, smooth pale ale. Basic and simple however, refreshing and super easy to drink. My 1st brew from the state of Kansas.

This Pale Ale is hoppy and light. The hoppiness is quite citrusy and herbaceous. Refreshing and smooth, this beer hits the tongue with notes of lemon and moves to an excellent mouthfeel and a semi-sweet bitterness in the succinct finish. I enjoyed this beer from a 16 ounce 8-bit graphic inspired can without food, so I can’t say much for the visual of the beer itself, so I gave the beer a medium 3 out of 5 in the appearance category. All in all, this is a good beer that will appeal to IPA lovers and anyone wanting a little departure from the norm. I would likely buy this beer again.

Light hops, good taste when you’re wanting a lighter indian pale ale but still want a decent taste.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 7, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. A good finger and half of tight head. Clear, golden colored ale. It smells a little like honey and musty hay. Not super appealing. The flavor starts slow and then builds up. Balanced bitter and malt at first, then the hops take over with a dull bitter taste at the end. Soft texture, low carbonation and medium body. It’s a tasty treat.

Can from Matt - thanks! Drank from the can. Aroma is light and grainy hop bitterness with a clean and dry malt backbone. Taste is medium grade hop bitterness with some semi-complex malt notes through the finish consisting of light roast and a bit of sweetness. Appropriate mouthfeel with a bit of crispness. Decent.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2012
16 oz. can to snifter. Pours hazy pale amber with a large soapy white head that settles to a sudsy film and lacing. Aroma is strong grain and malt with earthy floral hops.Taste is light with grass, grain and malt with more bitter floral hops that overcome the malt, but the grain shows throughout. Palate is medium and crisp refreshing with a drying finish. An obvious session brew with the abv. only at 5.2% not bad at all.

drpimento (2182) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2012
Wow, I like it! This was a sample provided to Bodega. Poured with a nice, foamy, thick, off white head and plenty of lace. Color is slightly hazy, golden amber and has some bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, slight citrus and resin. Flavor is like nose, with some carbonic tang to round things out and is very well balance. Body is very good, chewy, satisfying. Good drinking brew.

Thanks gregwilsonstl. Tasted from a pint can into a nucleated pint glass. Very cool concept and graphic design. It poured a light amber color with full, long-lasting white foam and lots of Belgian lace. Powerful grapefruit aromas, presumably from the Cascade and Galaxy hops, some muted graininess and fruity ale yeast esters beneath. Lots more grapefruity hops in the flavor as well, with an okay bready, caramelly malt balance. Light body, a little residual sticky sweetness, lingering tart aftertaste which never quite dried out. It leaned toward the IPA end of the Pale Ale spectrum. It was tasty but a pretty one-dimensional recipe overall, despite the brewer’s claim. A surprisingly mediocre beer compared to other Tallgrass offerings, so the fun video-game themed can will probably be the main attraction for most people.

Really good Ale. Has a citrus undertone to it. Would call it one of the more drinkable Ales around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
