I love this beer! I'm so glad Tallgrass brought it back. I guess it was only gone for a year, and the places I shopped only went without it for a very short time.

It pours a medium-dark brown, with a very small white head that disappears fast. Looks lightly carbonated.

Smells like a dark piece of bread, with some caramel notes.

The taste is great - it's quite similar to a brown ale, but less "dark." It's like a piece of toasted wheat bread with some malt sugar. Very creamy mouthfeel, despite low carbonation. It's awesome.

A very easy drinking beer!

Poured into a pint glass. Hazy dark-caramel color with a medium-sized off-white head that retreated into a thin disc. Aromas of toast and biscuit, some diacetyl. Taste was nice: dry malty flavor, no bitterness and a whiff of diacetyl that played well with the malt. Clean finish. Lightly carbonated and medium-bodied.

A smidgen carbonated for my taste in a beer in this vein, but, damn, I like it. Aroma does not preface flavor. Flavor is excellent. Color is excellent. I would gush if this thing behaved (headed) like a English stout. I guess I'm an outlier on this one.

Tallgrass Original 2007 Recipe Pub Ale, 1.046 Original Gravity, 12 IBU, Alc. 4.4% by Vol., Contains 1 pint. Brewed and canned by Tallgrass Brewing Company, Manhattan, Kansas, Established 2007.

Clear, copper/bronze coloring, beautiful, fresh off-white head, long-lasting, lace-leaving.

Aroma: clean, crisp malt, a little earthy, a little grainy.

taste: More clean and more crisp. Light bodied, soft, and easy-drinking. It's all about balance and malty smoothness. Tidy hop profile, matches and tempers the star of the show, the malts. Just right for a pub ale. Tasty stuff, downable, with no threat to one's attention. The very mark of a session ale.

16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Clear reddish brown, minimal lacing but it stays. Malty, grassy, bready nose. Crisp, smooth moderate sized body. For a smaller brew this has many layers of malt character, exactly what a Mild should have ... depth. Just a kiss of hops for balance though there is some highly toasted and perhaps a pinch of roasted malt in here to even things out. Semi-dry finish and very easy to knock back. Cheers to Tallgrass for this brew.

Appearance: Poured a dark brown with about a finger of creamy white head. Decent retention on the head, with slight lacing.

Smell: A bit weaker, but very malt forward. Notes of biscuity-sweetness seemed to dominate.

Taste: Also malt forward, but not so much the biscuity element. Instead notes of chocolate and earthiness came to the fore. Both fade pleasantly into a bit of hop bitterness on the back end, making quite a nice combination.

Feel: A bit thinner than I'd like for something so malt forward, though delightfully carbonated. Fairly easy drinking too, someone could certainly down quite a few of those if they wanted to.

Overall: The bar I was at actually had this advertised as a mild, english-style brown ale. Which certainly seemed a fitting description to me. The malts dominated this beer for the most part. Though it's a fair bit lighter and easy-drinking than many malt-forward beers I've had. Definitely a good session beer for those fond of their malts.
