COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full hop regiment attributes to a fresh citrus aroma and earthy flavor all balanced by lightly toasted malts. Not long ago, workers would be called to their union mandated beer breaks with the pull of the chain activated steam whistle. Beer bucket boys would hustle cold brew out to the workers before they returned to the production line. Our Pull Chain Pail Ale is a tribute to the working men and women who built this great city. Back to work!

Gusher of a bottle. Extra lively floaty laden amber with a large slowly dissipating rocky white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grain and orange. Taste of caramel and pale malts and citrus. Body is over-carbonated but balanced and has a mild to moderate bitter finish. Ok.

My favorite beer at the Alehouse. Rich malts, chewy texture, chololate overtones. A great hearty brew.

One of favorite beers from the Milwaukee Brewing Company. On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House ($2.50 imperial pints at happy hour - 4-7pm weeknights!) Brewed at the facility just a few blocks away on South Second Street, so you know its always fresh in Milwaukee. Has a citrus (possibly lemon) aroma, with real strong flavors - it has a real bite to it.

Pours a hazey orange copper body with a nice moderately sized white head. Plenty of lacing on the glass and citrus fruit that bubbles up through this highly carbonated brew. Tight, crisp hop flavor followed by a sweet and bitter battle to the finish.

Fair warning, pales are not my cup of tea. This example of the genre seems to me to have no flavor other than the aggressive floral hops that muscle their way right up to the front. My first, and last.

On tap at Thirsty Troll Brewfest

Iíve seen this place a few times at the Great Taste of the Midwest and when driving through Milwaukee. Iíve never had their beers until now. It turns out they make a decent product. It wasnít earth shaking but I would certainly be glad to have a place like this locally.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy copper body had a slight off white head and minimal carbonation. The scent of wheaties, malts and hops formed a pleasing collection of aromas.

Flavor / Palate - The first sip reminded me of hopped up sour mash. Caramel, bitterness and peat followed. The spruce finish was a nice touch. The body was a little thin. I found this an ideal summer beer.

Very hoppy for an APA. Bitter hop oils just coat your tongue upon first sip. Nice citrus flavor, piney aroma. Perfectly sessionable at 5%. I would recommend this one with their homemade gumbo.

A very good PA, especially when itís a session beer served with the handpulled tap. Strong hops, nice appearance, and floral aroma. A nice all-around beer.

This is a classic pale ale. It is full of tart hops that bring out grapefruit flavors and some bitterness. A touch of malt.

This beer pours deep orange and has a very strong head. The hops shows firm in the aromas giving the classic grapefruit notes. The palate enahces the same citrus notes and give a nice balanced bitter finish.
