Woodychandler, a couple of reviews below this one, has it wrong. I recieved this beer from him in one of his beautiful packages. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a bronze color with a 1 inch head. Smell is a bit malty, biscuity. Taste is nutty, a good bit of malts, a touch of toffee, just a bit unusual. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a different and enjoyable beer.

Picked up a can from the Ale Jail in St. Paul. It's always a pleasant surprise to find another session beer on the shelf, and I'm always a fan of milds. As it should be, it's malty beer. It's a touch heavier than I'd expect, but doesn't feel too filling. It's a sweet mild, with a sugar cookie, English biscuit and a bit of toffee. There's a smooth fruity undertone and really no hops to speak of.

I am actually not certain from where this CAN came. I think that tone77 dropped it off in his latest batch for me, but it seems odd that he did not review it himself. I would be highly flattered to think that he only got one CAN and passed it on to me. The CANQuest (TM) forges ahead!

From the CAN: "The original Pub Ale from Tallgrass"; "Original 2007 Formula"; "Just ask for a Tallgrass!"; "A fine Brown Ale with mild and rich flavors to win friends and influence enemies."

The Crack and inverted Glug went smoothly, right up until it started creating a massive head above a pseudo-cascading action and I was forced to back off. Color was a deep-copper with NE-quality clarity (SRM = ~ 34). Settling, I had two fingers of dense, foamy, light-tan head, like the top of a mocha shake. Nose was syrupy sweet and slightly buttery. I felt as though I were sitting down to pancakes. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was, well, mild. Not too sweet, not at all bitter, and with just enough diacetyl that even I could discern it (and usually, I CANnot). Given the style's descriptor(s) on this site, I would say that they nailed it. Finish was semi-sweet, not over the top in terms of its sweetness in any way. This, combined with its relatively low ABV, made for a nice nightcap. I am going to retire for the day after I finish. I guess that if you are looking for a sessionable beer, you could do way worse than some of these.

Pub Ale poured a darkish amber color with a nice large lacing head. There is a very mellow aroma with subtle roasted malt notes, and toffee notes. The taste is also very mellow and light. With some roasted malt notes, and toffee flavors. Light flavors, but nice either wise. Overall its a nice flavored lighter beer.
