A - Ornge pour with fizzy carbonation and a white foam that settles quickly. Very clear and slight lacing.
S - Scents of orange, lemon, and pale malt. A faint amount of hop clover hits the nose.
T - Very light drinking pale with some tartness from citrus. Very clean and refreshing taste. Finish has a light bitterness. Some spicy notes are present; more as the I finished half the glass
M- Light feel, crisp, and leaves a slight herbal bite in the finish.
O - This is a nice pale ale that while fairly generic has enough flavor to appeal to citrus lovers on a hot day. Good BBQ beer.

Poured a hazy dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured some light malts and a vibrant herbal hop.
The taste consisted of an upfront astringency to the malt that relented to a soft malt and herbal hop.
The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.
Overall a pleasant and easy to drink ale.

I had a sixteen ounce pour of this at George Keeley's on Manhattan's upper west side. I had hoped to like it better but it was just too malty for the low abv and low hops. I guess that's just the character of the style but I would have prefered something a little more refreshing. It was very a very cloudy straw color with a decent aroma but, again, the flavor was a bit intense for what it was. I would not recommend but I do like this brewery in general.

I have been a fan of Speakeasy Ales & Lagers for a while and when I was headed to visit The Old Lady in Denver, she wanted to go to a release party dressed as Prohibition-era people. It got delayed when licensing got held up, but I found it amusing that we have had Speakeasy in PA for a while and it was new to CO. I also find it ironic that both Speakeasy and 21st Amendment are in S.F.
From the bottle: "Legit since 1997"; "Limited Release"; "Hand Crafted"; "A Show-Stopper"; "Tallulah mesmerizes with tropical fruit aroma and a radiant golden glow. This show-stopper is dry-hopped with Calypso and El Dorado hops and will leave you begging for and encore."; "Independently owned and operated".
I have no idea why they named this beer as such. Tallulah Bankhead was not really a star during the Roaring '20's, I also do not think that this is the second runnings of a barleywine, as the notes seem to indicate. I do think that it poured nicely, creating a dense finger of thick, tawny head with good retention. Color was, as advertised, a deep golden yellow (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity and once again, King Midas, Croesus and Mammon were fighting for a sip. Nose was also as advertised, a soft fruity smell, like mango, banana and tangerine along with a bready maltiness. Mouthfeel was likewise soft, almost viscous, with a flavor of mango, tangerine and pineapple on the tongue. I swear I have been tasting pineapple a lot lately and either I am crazy or these hops are being used regularly. Finish was semi-dry and very fruity with a lingering mild bitterness. This also created an unexpected amount of lacing.in the glass. Definitely worth a try!
