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!

Pours an expected slightly amber pale clear orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma of floral, slightly citrus hops, herbs, slight caramel, and tart almost ripe fruit. Flavor matches well, but fruity esters stick around a bit more than expected. Carbonation is lively and makes for decent mouthfeel, but this just doesn’t come together very well. Very different.

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

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 (5678) - 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 (904) - 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 (1706) - 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.

Pale malt truly overpowers this brew. Drank from a glass and didnt really enjoy this one from Erie.
