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.

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.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Poured hazy orange-amber with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma is of caramel-sweet malt and molasses, with a light piney hops note beneath. Body is medium and just a touch watery. Mildly dry finish. Flavor is of caramel mixed with piney hops. The sweetness of molasses appears at the back. Hoppier than I expected.

Poured into snifter a hazy deep gold. Aroma is Carmel malts, grassy hops, slightly piney like a walk in the Pines on a hot day , slightly toasted grass and pine resins. Taste is cereal, bready, toasted malts. An English profile. Pine bitterness in the finish but it is nicely soft. Body is light and smooth. Small white head and lace with mild carbonation. Very drinkable, well done, I enjoyed this one.

Pours a heady hazy dark golden, lots of sediment. Nose is piney hops, burnt sugars, some citrus, molasses. Taste is lots of piney hop, dry, spicy hop, bitter hop finish lingers. Reads more like an ESB than an old ale, malts hidden behind the hops. Not terrible, not what I want. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a clear golden color with an amber tint and a white head. The aroma was a little bready with cereal malts, floral notes and yeast notes. The taste was of malts with grassy hops, grapefruit and some toast. Thanks jtclockwork.

750ml bottle from the brewery thanks to Pizz5116. Pours a murky burnt orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast, rotted oranges, and honey. Taste of old oranges, lemon zest, caramel malt, and toasted grain. Pretty decent.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours out a decent amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of some metallic notes, mild sugary sweetness, some odd sweet but tangy toffee. Taste is strange, sweet caramel/toffee, molasses, metal, spice, grassy hops, root beer. Hummmm....
