Notes / Commercial Description:
Tallgrass Ale is the flagship beer of Tallgrass Brewing Company, and we think it will be your new favorite beer! Truly a craft beer, the recipe was first brewed by Jeff as a 10-gallon batch of homebrew. Of all his homebrew recipes, Jeff chose Tallgrass Ale as the flagship beer because of the beer’s surprising light body, extraordinarily smooth and balanced profile, great taste, and clean finish. The first time Jeff brewed Tallgrass Ale he thought it looked a little too dark, but after he kegged that first batch, the finished beer was really, really tasty! That first little 10-gallon batch of Tallgrass was gone way too fast!

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.

Aroma: caramelly sweet, graham cracker, Appearance: Brilliant brown under a fairly persistent 1” off-white foam collar. Flavor: Soft malt, nuts and biscuit, hints of chocolate, medium high bitterness, and while it starts malty, and the overall impression is not hoppy, it finishes dry, and there is no lasting bitterness. This taste clean. Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation, Overall Impression: Not great but a respectable very drinkable brown ale.

A tasty, thin-bodied brown, redolent of vanilla, with molasses undertones and mild malt bite. Super noteworthy? Maybe not. But it's sturdy, dependable, and decidedly sessionable despite its darkness.
