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.

Some spiceyness and layers to this beer. No better way to commemorate Paul Revere’s ride...especially for a San Franciscan beer The beer of freedom and liberty and America. Some hoppiness and a little bit of smoke.

Golden, amber and transparent with a gorgeous meringue sitting proudly on top. I wasn’t expecting that much head on it and was pleasantly surprised. Some Cascade citrus and floral features up my nostrils, but with an extra spicy twist. Good cookie malt presence, bitterness has more bite than your average pale ales, but smoother than an IPA. I really, really enjoyed this one. Proof once more that, for me at least, balance and nuance beats exaggeration and obstreperousness (my secret word for today).

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Amber coloured ale, slightly hazy wirth a pretty thin head. Has all the typical ale-charachteristics with caramel and a scent of flowers. Pronounced, dry hoppiness.

Nice creamy head. Aroma is sort of tropical and citrucy. A very hoppy kick that reminds me of st arnolds elissa, but not as strong. Tastes a bit toasty and finishes bitter. Quite enjoyable however.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 This was when it was introduced the hoppiest beer in America. We have sure come a long way thankfully. Some nice malt notes semi sweet and bready. Nice cascade dry hopping with good bitterness. Very clean and consistent with nice carbonation good conditioning {tiny bubbles} and balanced finish.

Probably one of the better pale ales I’ve had... a bit more hops than I expected. Not much to it, but it’s very clean and crisp. Easy.

This bottle poured a slightly cloudy, pale amber liquid. There was a generous creamy white head that dissipated to a small but persistant head that lasted throughout leaving nice lacing on the glass. The aroma of sweet malt is predominant there are also notes of sweet fruit including banana and bing cherry. The initial bitter hop flavor is well balanced with malt sweetness. The middle has a nice mild hop bitterness while the finish has a hint of bubble gum.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Slightly hazy straw color with a very thin white head. Very well balanced aroma of hops, malt and citrus with a touch of candy sweetness at the end. The taste begins with a very nice hoppy and malt mix with a well balanced malt middle and a slight hint of citrus and hoppy bitterness at the end. Very tasty pale ale.

Bottle. Cloudy dark copper color. Light, white head. Quite hoppy and flavorful. Nice malty taste. Chocolate and citrus hints add to a complex, yet drinkable ale.
