Beer Stories
Mad Anthony’s APA is named for General Anthony Wayne, Brigadier General of the American Revolutionary War. It is rumored that during the war, General Wayne was shot numerous times and that his “madness” can be attributed to lead poisoning caused by the lead filled bullets which entered his body. He died in 1796, and was buried in Erie only to be dug up years later by his angry son, upset that his father had not been buried in the family plot. Driving Mad Anthony’s remains back to St. David’s Churchyard, his son drove so fast, causing many of the General’s bones to fall out of the wagon and be strewn across various parts of Pennsylvania!

12 ounce bottle pour. Yellow color with a light white head. Very light pale. Grainy and light hops. Light watery but refreshing.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours copper with a white head and lacing. The aroma was tea, fruit, bread, and earthy hops. The taste was the same with the hops coming in subtle. This was a decent pale ale.

Dacrza (862) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2016
DATE: May 20, 2016... OCCASION: just returned from the Relay For Life event tonight... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern.. APPEARANCE: strong, effervescent, light golden body... thick, white, crunchy crags of head solidify with resilience... equally thick, equally resilient lacing... beautiful, full rings create a rib cage around the glass... AROMA: punchy watermelon, grapefruit, and some sour elements.... slight bread malts bring some balance to the aroma... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly acidic impact... long, metallic draw as an aftertaste... TASTE: the pineapple and watermelon are pleasant enough, while the lightly toasted bread balances... some off-color flavors that detract from the experience, and few other dimensions to entice seeking it out... serviceable... OVERALL: the quintessential "average" American pale ale... more malt than the average, perhaps, but enough citric hops to make clear its pale ale appellation.... useful, sessionable, and flavorful enough to engage the palate, but blends in among the many other pales offered...

I'm not a big pale ale fan, there is nothing special about this. Not terrible just weak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnokk (473) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2016
APPEARANCE- Light golden color, white head. Looks like it’d be very refreshing on a hot summer day. NOSE- light bitter hop scent a bit grassy. FLAVOR- what you’d expect for a light ale. Slightly bitter at the end of the sip. Very light flavors at the beginning - nearly no flavor. NOTES- I’d happily drink this on a hot summer day on the lake.

Patrickctenchi (6086) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle: Clear orange-gold, with a small white head. Lemon, barley, grass scent. Taste is a bit on the sour side.... Grain malt, lemon-peel, citrus. Decent, but a little too sharp tasting after about a third of the way through.

fiveacestx (930) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle - Average medium yellow. Has an aroma of butter and a taste of sour milk. One is enough. Looks like "Mad" Anthony Wayne has something else to be pissed about.

Malt bomb. What an awful attempt at an IPA. Erie is terrible. Not a redeeming quality of this beer. Had a bottle pour at home from some shitty beer of the month. I am sure they got a deal on this crap beer

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2016
12 oz bottle from the AOPD monthly beers the ale poured a clear light amber with small head that dissipated quickly. The aroma of some floral hops and bread greets you. the taste has some light citrus, bread yeast and pale malts. The ale has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish was smooth with some a light citrus finish.

A a AA ball game in Erie. Translucent amber-orange with a thin white head. The aroma is malty up front, with some tropical hops hiding behind. Caramel and toasty malt in the flavour, with some citrussy hops. Decent beer.
