Drink This Beer: O’Fallon Kite Tail

It’s been a while since I demanded that you Drink This Beer… how about O’Fallon Kite Tail?

O’Fallon Kite Tail

Esquire magazine thought enough of this beer to name it one of the top “mellow beers” for summer 2012. Unfortunately, the Rate Beer people didn’t think as highly of it, and Beer Advocate only has rather middling reviews. Still, it’s worth a shot for me.

O’Fallon Brewery calls it a Cream Ale, something suitable for summer. Though summer passed into fall last week, this is still readily available on the grocery store shelves.

Kite Tail… still in a bottle?

Time to crack this beer and get it in a glass for sampling.

Less than 5% ABV?! Better be tasty…

Kind of light for a Simpson BBQ beer

I see where they get “cream ale” as I sip the beer. You get a very faint hint of cream soda. Perhaps it’s suggestive, but I think that I pick it up. Very smooth… far smoother than most ales or even lagers.

It’s nice and crisp, certainly something that should be in a can after I cut the grass or pull weeds. This is a particularly drinkable beer with a pleasant aroma. You can’t really say that there’s any distinguishing about this beer other than it is a tasty, easy drinkin’ session beer with local ties. At $7.99 per sixer (at both Schnuck’s and Target), it’s not like you are taking a hit in the pocketbook.
