To commemorate that twenty-year history, the brewers of Grand Teton have chosen four of our favorite beers--three current, one historical--to update and enhance. XX Au Naturale Organic Double Red Ale is the third release in our 2008 XX series. Au Naturale Organic Blonde is the newest member of Grand Tetons mainstay beers, first brewed in 2006. Crafted with organic German malt and hops, it has a clean, smooth character reminiscent of the best European lagers. For our 20th Anniversary celebration, weve traded in the blonde for a redhead while keeping our German roots. Still brewed with all German organic malt and hops, the XX Au Naturale is bigger, maltier--and redder--than the original. The reddish Vienna malts that give this ale its color provide a spicy sweetness and some caramel notes that perfectly complement roast or grilled chicken, pizza, or pasta.

Bottle Thanks to JohnGalt1. If it was not for Toby I never would have nad this. The big Teton wax flip tops are not for me. Pours out a crisp clear amber topped with a light cream head.Aroma is of floral hops, some toasty malts and a little sweetness. Taste is much more of the toast malts and light nut..

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pour is clear amber with a fluffy dense khaki head...smell is sweet and toasty with some pears, fresh bread, and a slight hint of sourness (not good sour)...taste is sweet and musty at first with a very cereal sweetness...come caramel and molasses flavors as well...a little cardboardy (probably due to age)...some light bitterness is hanging out in there still as well...finish is lingeringly and not unpleasant...

2008 Bottle - Thanks JohnGalt1!! - Always love an opportunity to taste the GT reserves...this one pours clear, dk orange with a decent sized off white head...aroma is malty and grainy, sweet caramel, Im the only one who got a little bit of maple, I swear it was there...flavour featured it also, but it might have just been some toasted malt, dry syrup, nutty and tries for sweet but remains fairly dry....massive carbonation didnt help augment the taste, and it finishes a bit thin...glad I got to try it...

cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2009 Maybe its aged too long, maybe its just that its Organic. Whatever. It just doesnt have any bite to it. The flavor is okay but generic. The strong point is the appearance, a nice semi-opaque reddish-brown with good foam retention. Flavor has a bit of nuttiness. Palate is soft but quite watery in feel. Kinda disappointed, really.
