Beer Stories
Erie, Pennsylvania, the site where three sets of railroad track gauges met, was an important transportation hub in the mid-nineteenth century. Railbender Ale is named after the laborers who laid the railroad tracks. It is brewed with pride, strength and purity; symbolic of Erie’s historic railroads and their workers. Railbender is a strong Scottish Style Ale with astonishing drinkability. One try and you’ll want to “Bend the rules and ride the rails!”

Nice light brown color but didn’t retain its head very long. Not a strong aftertaste but has a hint of something citrius. Not a bad ale

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Sampled on draft at Rivertowne Pub in North Huntingdon PA this beer poured a dark copper color with a huge orange-white head. The aroma is light and sweet fruity hops. The flavor is sweet, malty, nutty, yeasty and has a moderate floral and fruity hop presence. The finish is dry and bitter. Pleasant and fairly easy drinking.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Sliffy. Clear light amber with a yellowish tan head. Medium sweet caramel nose, toffee and biscuit notes. Sweet malty flavor, caramel, an almost malt liquor graininess. Touches of breadiness. Light, muted, sweet finish.

Bottle thanks to sliffy: Pours a clear copper orange with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Sweet caramely malty aroma has a noble hoppy character and lager yeasty profile. Body starts with a sweet grainy malty flavor and lots of malt liquor character. Not much resemblance of an old ale here, although it hides its alcohol fairly well.

Hummmm, not a very good beer. light brown with kind of acrid caramel flavor. A drain pour for me.

Pours gold with absolutely no head. The aroma is mostly malt, with not much else. The flavor is a bit sour, with a grainy taste.
