COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tavern Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale. It is a medium to full-bodied beer with a hoppy aroma. Tavern Ale is served unfiltered resulting in a hazy or cloudy appearance. It has a full malt finish with a well rounded bitterness. Tavern Ale is an American Pale Ale because of the large amounts of American hops which lends a distinct, almost citrusy flavor to the beer. Therefore, our Tavern Ales is quite different from the "spicy" or "herby" flavor of European hops.

This American Pale Ale pours an orange copper color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt and citrus and piney hops. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are piney and grapefruity. Nicely balanced, slightly hop forward APA. It is almost IPA like in its hopiness. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter.

Amber colored, small beige head that only lasts a little while. Malty nose that’s a little bready, and has citrus notes. Flavor is bitter, a little metallic, and citrus. Good bie and lacing. Mouthfeel borders on heavy, as does the finish.

Standard pale ale here...coppery color, moderate malt, hops, leaving it with a suggestion of citrus. Not bad, but nothing too exciting really.

Braudog (5865) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft pint at the Annapolis brewpub. Finally, after four pints, a flavorful brew at Fordham. reddish bronze with a thin wisp. Fully malty but also with a bit of nice northwestern hoppy bite. Can’t believe the waitress recommended this to my friend who asked for a pilsner. Read my place review ... what a joke. (#3197, 11/10/2007)

Very true, not spicy, but still pleasant enought to try again. Tavern ale not as good as most of the other Fordham beers I have tried.

Nice golden copper color with a fluffy head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Quite a bit of bitterness balanced with some caramel maltiness that finishes dry.
