Notes/Commercial Description:
An organic ale named after Greg Higgins of Higgins restaurant in downtown Portland. Greg is brewed without hops and makes use of the kambocha (green pumpkin) squash for about one-third of the total sugars, lending it a distinctly squashy, pumpkin taste. This beer is available on draft at Higgins, at the brewery and occasionally elsewhere in the Portland area.

On tap at HotD.

Hazy yellow body with a white trace on the surface but no lace.

Light fruit (squash?) nose.

Kinda bubblegum -squash, sweetish and pleasant. Faint coriander finish. Even better than it looked on paper.

Lightweight feel w. some body.

Pleasant and interesting seasonal, worked really well!

Greg is a no hop beer made with squash. It has a very faint fruit nose but most of the bouquet on the beer is quite closed. It has a nice golden yellow color to it, and keeps a good head.

Taste and mouthfeel is definitely wet, there is even some slight nut taste on it to me, which nut was hard to pin down, and was also consisted of a slight buttery finish.

The beer is also very much in feel to crisp summer white wine. Very pleasurable and unique.

from notes

hazy orange tinted amber color and a nice soft off white head that reached a height of around an inch or so before it settled down with some nice lacing on the side that really just surprised me with how well it hung in there to be honest. Really quite the solid look. Nice aroma of pumpkin spice, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, all the usual characters here with a touch of a west coast hop flair to it, especially as it warms. Crisp and super clean flavor here. Starts with a touch of a light malt note and then swoops in with a big hit of cinnamon and nutmeg which dries out the palate very nicely. Very even consistency I have to admit as it comes together very nice.

Pours muddy brownish with two finger big bubbly chalk white head, quick dissipation. Smell is squash, sweeter veggie, a bit earthy. Taste is bland, squash and veggies, sort of like a light bodied abbey ale, but sweet. Thin mouthfeel. Interesting and drinkable, but I don’t really want to try it again.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A very interesting "hopless" brew. A slightly hazy, pale golden liquid with a small layer of white bubbles for a head; a little bit of spotty lacing dotted the glass. Vegetal aroma (makes sense), with scents of squash and pumpkin flesh, distant notes of bready malts. More of the same in the taste--felt like I just ate a plate of steamed vegetables--with flavors of pumpkin and squash, earthy, bready, with mild notes of brown sugar and herbs. Interesting. Somewhat bitter, but overall pretty smooth and easily drinkable, once you realize what exactly is going on.

On-tap @ Hair of the Dog.
from notes.

Intriguing, very cloudy golden brown with a thin white head and light lacing.

The pilsner malts really shines through nicely, with squash adding a light sweetness.

Medium body, mild fizzy carbonation.

Really enjoyable, I was impressed with the enjoyable flavor profile despite no hops being used. I went into expecting more of a novelty beer and wound up finding something I would gladly drink again.
