COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere's ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.

Had this on tap at the Capital Ale House in Richmond (great place by the way). I really enjoyed this beer. It is very hoppy with a great citrus taste, so the two mix together very well and make a nice grapefruit flavor. Definitly a good brew, especially considering that am a big fan of IPAs.

OK cant believe I havent tried this beer yet. Bought in the 22 oz Anchor bowling pin brown bottle!. To be honest after a furious pour ( not my fault honest!)..its a pretty average looking ale pale amber , large frothy white head. smell however is quite refreshing,,nice fresh hop zestiness and smooth malts. Very balanced taste, smooth and creamy with sweet hints of malts..then a short and plesant lenony hop bitterness..nice aftertaste. Very smooth and nice on the tongue..great mouthfeel. Very drinkable indeed..this is still a nice ale..but in 1975 this must have been a revelation..the first blast of the trumpets for the micro revolution.

Surrounded by the great history of old New York at Fraunces Tavern I found this ale by Anchor Brewing on tap to be sharp, crisp, almost tingly, slightly bitter with the hops fairly prevalent.

Grapefruity, piney, flowery aroma. Orange in color with some suspended particles. Just tiny white head and a tad bit of lacing. Hoppy taste, grapefruit, some sweetness as well. Finishes long and bitter. Tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 Very fruity, almost champagne aroma. The body of the beer is medium, and I think the exceptionally fine carbonation makes it feel even thicker. The flavor is decent, it starts out malty, then becomes fairly hoppy by the finish. A pretty decent APA, and not overhopped like most pales these days. Love the label, too.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 Golden orange coloured beer with cloudy white head. Orange citrus hop aroma along with a bit of slightly sweet pale malt. The malts donít seem entirely fresh, or there is a little bit of some slightly sweet almost honeyed flavour. Moderate bitterness. Itís pretty nice stuff actually. I didnít like this the first time I had it but itís grown on me.

12 oz. bottle: poured a thin golden color. small head. smells of harsh alcohol and hops. OK... tastes floraly, and hopy, but not very balanced, all told, very unimpressed.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Great brew. Everything Anchor does is better out of the pint bottles. True with the porter and the Liberty ale. Get the Pint bottle...exponentially more complex. Pours an interesting amber copper color. Somewhat appetizing...cloudy almost. Smells like someone cut a grapefruit up and forced it into my pilz glass. The cascades have set up a fascist government in my glass. Tatses nice and round. Explodes in your mouth with a refreshing fruity bitterness. This is pleasingly married to a lovely malt thickness that cannot be described only experienmced. I love the thickness of this brew. It is oily in that it is malty. Awesome! A very good drinking beer. Put it in your hole. G-rat

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2005 Bottled. Slightly hazy, orange, white head that quickly dissapaites. Hoppy aroma. Bitter taste, full bodied and hoppy, but well balanced. Tasty.
