COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Jersey has always had a rich brewing heritage dating back to it’s founding by the English in 1664. To celebrate this anniversary we’ve brewed a historic-style: an English Stock Ale. Rich imported malts along with both historic and modern hops and a generous helping of blackstrap molasses makes for a hearty and complex flavor. The Cluster hops, the first variety cultivated in the US, add a piney aroma, a nod to the Pine Barrens, one of our state’s treasures.

keepersj12 (2760) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Nice beer. It has a reddish tint to it. Aroma of malt and candy. The flavor is rich with malts and just enough hops to balance. Goes down smooth and easy.

tricyclist (847) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Split bottle pour of golden liquid, white head. Nose is straw and hops, not too bitter but citrusy. Malted flavor with medium hop chasacter, clean citrus with being overly bitter. Fairly drinkable overall for sure

Dorwart (2391) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2014
About a 1 inch thick head of bright white, fine bubbles. Sharp and biting aroma with some ashes, dried leaves, burnt toast and dried pine boughs. Color is a hazy dark copper. Rather dry and chalky mouthfeel. More dried grains, tea leaves, spicy hops. Light alchol presence. Lacking a bit of malt and sweetness for balance. Finishes dry and stings the tongue a bit. An ok brew.

Hazy copper pour with light tan head. Aroma of molasses and caramel malt. Rich malty flavors, some booze in the middle and a piney earthy hop finish. Very nice balanced beverage.

The piney aroma is pleasant, but unfortunately might be the standout feature of this beer. Dull orange, thin to the point of watery. The flavor is more balanced once you allow the beer to warm enough for the caramel malt notes to emerge. Finish is long and bitter. Something to have with a pizza perhaps, but nothing very special.
