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 brewers 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 dont 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!

Aroma of dark malts, molasses, and peanuts. Flavors of toffee, caramel, roasted nuts, and slight earth. Smooth and mellow. Not really an exciting brew and the price of a four pack at nine bucks is absurd. Much better options and at a better price point.

wombat23 (1226) - Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Shared 16 oz. can. Hazy amber with a cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, bread and nuts. Taste follows nose. Fairly light-bodied. Quite drinkable and honestly much better than expected though I wouldnt really categorize as a brown ale.

Aroma: odd mix of maltiness and doughiness; Appearance: rich amber with fluffy white head that lingers; Taste: smooth and light; refreshing; Palate: medium-light body with short finish; Overall: not bad. Would drink again if available.

I like browns; this, not so much. thin I guess you could say there is some verrrry faint tones of toffee but this is watered down average stuff here.

Not really a brown, pours and drinks lighter than that. Not a bitter but has some aspects of that style. "Pub Ale" is a great description, actually. I could definitely down several of these in an evening at a pub.

ajnepple (6139) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2016
On tap at the University Library Cafe. Clear amber appearance with a beige head. Mild aroma of toasted malts and husky grains. Similar flavor, mild and fairly clean, but a bit bland. Light hop bitterness and light sweetness with a light body, a crisp feel and a grainy finish.

Shag (2941) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2016
A murky brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains toffee, vanilla, and some herbal notes. The flavor is smooth and malty with some caramel and toffee flavors. Overall good session ale

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Cranberry and malty aroma. Tastes like a lighter ESB. Surprised at the brown ale categorization here at RB. Not surprised Tallgrass used some English malts and hops here as this is the most English tasting ale Ive had from America. Nice, decent flavor, easy to drink.
