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!

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Hazy bright golden color, large fluffy white head, good lacing. Aroma of hay and white pepper. Taste is straightforward bitter, but not too bitter, with a dry finish. Decent stuff.

Tmoney99 (10985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Another good drinkable brew.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House Brew Pub. Poured a medium amberish-copper color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of grapefruit, citrus and pine. Had a lightly sweet balance to the nice hoppy finish.

crossovert (7738) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. Brewed and bottled by the Milwaukee Brewing Co. Pours into my Milwaukee Brewing Co. pint glass with a murky copper color, rotten peach I’d say. The head is foamy and eggshell white and leaves some decent lacing. There is not much smell to this one, then again the only APA that has ever had a smell to me was FFF Pride and Joy. They definitely need to dry ho this one. There is a little bit of hops and grain but it is pretty thin. It has a mild resinous pine flavor, pretty much the same as the IPA but watered down. Some generic malt in there too. Unfortunately after having FFF Pride and Joy all APAs seem average, all brewers looking to brew it need to up their games.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2007
On tap at the Ale House. Poured a clear medium amber with a dusting of white head and some nice lacing. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and toffee maltage, oranges, and grapefruits.. nice components that were decently blended... sweeter as it warmed. Sweet caramel and grapefruit in the flavor with pine and floral bitterness... rather simple... back-end found sharper diacetyl and bitter notes that were not as pleasant. Medium-bodied. Smooth front of the drink transitioned rather poorly to the sharper, bitter back-end. Just OK.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Pours a light copper with a puffy white head. Sweet fresh hoppy and sweet pale malt aroma. Body has a nice thickness to it with good complexity and hop flavor. Fresh crisp clean finish with a light fruitiness. A very nice APA.

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2012
On tap at the Milwaukee Brewing Co with ground hops on top. Poured a hazy gold with a tan head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice pine note with backing grass and grain. Flavor has a good amount of grass notes with a hint of pine and a grain backbone.

drowland (6134) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2010
8/11/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Light, clear amber pour that reminds me of pumpkin liqueur. A fluffy white head sticks around on top as a ring and a skin quite well. The aroma is mostly sweet malts, earth, and soap - not anything super awesome going on. The flavor is again very prominent in sweet malts with a bitter kick, but not a lot of distinct hop flavor. Eh.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2003
Cask conditioned on tap - Orange tint, okay head but fine lacing. medium-bodied. Fruity (berry and pear) and hoppy aroma. Tangy palate with buttery smoothness. Taste, wheat bread hint besides the hops. Lingering bitterness but not overpowering. Fine ale.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft at the Ale House. This is a golden-amber beer with a thin body, but a big sticky head. It drinks with a super heavy body, definitely malt-centric. The finish has just a little earthy hop to it. (#5146, 7/5/2013)
