Prairie Tulsa Rugby Ale

Posted: June 20, 2016 in American Pale Ale, Prairie Artisan Ales, Reviews

So, since I went to California for work, I had to rent a car. I ended up getting a Nissan Versa, which is a small car. This one, does not like driving over 60 mph. The wheel decides to randomly shake anytime it goes over that speed. Also, the traffic in California is the worst I have ever seen and the people drive like maniacs. Even Val agreed with me on that one. I am excited to be going home soon. I miss Jersey a lot.


ABV: 5.4%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Tulsa Rugby Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed with Summit and Chinook hops. It’s a medium-bodied ale with notes of biscuit that nicely compliment the piney resin notes the hops add.”

Random: I’ve never played rugby, although it seems like something I would have done.

The beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, warm orange with light carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of fresh-cut grass with slightly sweet caramel malt. The taste was a touch sweeter than the nose. It had the same grass, but quickly went into toffee and caramel malt notes. It had some floral notes at the end of the sip. The body was medium thickness with more than enough carbonation. The finish was swift and sweet. Normally, I’m not a fan of pale ales that are towards the sweeter side, but this one worked for me, despite the high pricetag of $3.63 per bottle ($.30 per ounce). I would have this one again.
