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.

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 (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, 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.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Tap @ Firehouse. Clear medium orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving a coarse lace. Faint hops in the nose along mostly medium-roast malt. Medium body, fairly sweet with caramel and a hint of dank butterscotch - has the keg turned? Hard to believe that would be the case at the brewery. Hop profile is fragrant pine, but not much bitterness. Nothing to see here, move along.

jake65 (3695) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Tap @ Brewpub: Pours a clear golden color with a smaller sandy head. Nose is mild, but citrusy and some caramel. Tastes crisp with florals and citrus, light caramel. The bitters stand out better here than in the Red. Not bad.

3.2
aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Nice malt backbone. Far from heavy, but more flavorful than the rest. Hops are discernable in the aroma and flavor. Hop variety is clear, so beer is fresh, but not a hoppy beer by beer geek standards. Tasty.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2007
RBSG thanks for the state Skyview. An aroma of bitter malt, hops, and corn? A nice orangish hewed beer with light head and lace. A flavor of malt dominates, very little hops but there is a tad of a bitter. A bit of a thin palate with little carbonation. A beer that is drinkable but not a special one at all. I would like to try it fresh someday. thanks again
