I was lucky enough to receive this in a recent trade with Goliath, thanks Brad! I believe this will be my first beer from the great state of Kansas. Tallgrass is a brown ale that with a perfectly clear body and chestnut highlights. A touch of ruby flashes through here and there with the light directly behind the glass. I had to pour hard to conjure up a one finger head that fell the a creamy cap and left some impressive lacing down the glass on its way.

The nose has a toasty graininess and a solid nuttiness that, unfortunately, becomes artificial the longer I keep my nose in the glass. There's a slight bit of coppery twanginess that I'm not too fond of along with a soft herbal hoppiness throughout that's adds a nice touch. The copper isn't so bad and actually comes and goes but it isn't very complimentary.

The toasted malts get things moving and push all the way through. Day old coffee grounds that are a bit acidic lean in hard along with the coppery twang. The nuttiness comes back in the form of hazelnut and the longer it sits on the tongue the more artificial it becomes. Herbal hoppiness brings up the rear. This isn't a bad beer but it's just a little on the bland and boring side.

The body is light and the carbonation is fairly fast moving. Each drink slides quickly over my tongue and shows some prickliness on the swallow.

This brown ale goes down fairly easy but just doesn't keep my attention well enough to keep me wanting more.

Not a bad brown but a little rough and boring. I'm glad I got to give it a whirl and would like to try more from Tallgrass if I ever get the chance. Thanks again Brad!
