COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The original Tallgrass beer, Pub Ale was created by founder Jeff Gill during a homebrew session in which he discovered he was missing some of the ingredients needed for a recipe. A new recipe was written on the spot and Pub Ale was born. Pub Ale is a rich, mild and smooth English brown ale, with a lightly sweet, toasty and nutty flavor with hints of caramel and molasses. The beer was different from anything he or his friends could find on tap or on the shelf. It was a beer that was a deep chestnut color, yet had a great flavor and was so light tasting that it kept you wanting more. The distinctive look and taste of Tallgrass Ale comes from our unique blend of German, English, and American-style malts and a generous helping of both American and traditional English hops. These ingredients, our English brewer’s yeast, and the Flint Hills’ excellent brewing water gives Tallgrass Ale a distinctive, toffee-highlighted taste and smooth profile that is always drinkable.

Tallgrass Ale is available on tap in bars and restaurants throughout our distribution area, so try it at your favorite local bar. If they don’t have it, ask for it! Or, you can stop by our brewery in Manhattan and buy some for yourself after a tour and a free sample!

CanIHave4Beers (4224) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Draught
Pours a dark brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fairly mellow, with some light fruity hops and a nice nutty/toasted nut aroma.

The flavor is rich and nutty with nice coffee roastiness. The chocolate notes are nice but light, and the bitterness is satisfying but low. Simple and not complex but very enjoyable.

A great, clean, drinkable, satisfying, & flavorful session ale.
Lower 50th percentile for style, u jokin? This would pull a much bigger score from a sexier brewery.

Tap pours soft brown with light khaki fizz across the top. There is a slight aroma of toasted malty bread. It is light and smooth, kind of an ale version of the darker amber bocks popular in Texas. Slightly sweet, slightly creamy and light bodied with a lower amount of carbonation, it goes down quick on a warm day. Decent one overall.

Pint can - Pours deep brown with a big foamy tan head. Not a very pungent nose. There’s some metal in there, along with a mellow nutty maltiness. Taste is more pungent, with big roasty dark bread malt, a touch of ash, lots of lightly bitter nuttiness, and a touch of herbal hops. Finishes malty and nutty. Watery, with a bit of biting carbonation. Tasty.

The appearance of this beer is a clear brown color mixed with a small white head that fades quickly, and the aroma smells of toasted malts, caramel, and bread yeast. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, which is very nice on the tongue; furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.
