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!

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, 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)

Dark slightly hazed amber color with a small dense head. Aromas of pine and mild grapefruit. Mild malt lingers in the back. Some fresh hops flavors with a mild light fruitiness mid quaff. Finsih has a mild pine and grapefruit bite. Medium body. A decent Pale.

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2007
This is a classic pale ale. It is full of tart hops that bring out grapefruit flavors and some bitterness. A touch of malt.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Damn I’m not getting what y’all are getting with this place. Light clear amber; sprucy nose, little malt...in the body, thickness, caramel, a light lingering bite, but fairly nondescript.

Amber color. Well balanced with hops and malt. Some sweetness from the malt. The hops that are there do taste good, but there are not enough of them. This is however, a well balanced beer, good for a session.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Amberish color with a good sized head. Aroma of strong hops and spice. The taste is quite hoppy, but a large blast of malt that balances it out. Very solid pale ale and quite tasty.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2009
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.

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Aroma is citrus, fruit and a mild hint of pine/resin. The flavor is citrus, fruit, malts and a sour/tart twang in the finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Slightly hazy. Orange color with thin white head. There was some lace on the glass after I drained it. Pleasant flowery hop aroma. Tastes mostly of flowery/citrusy hops without a strong malt backbone. Moderate bitterness that lingers. Pretty tasty.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft at Milwaukee Brewing. Pours an attractive reddish-orange with a fluffy and persistent white head. Nose is citrusy and pretty fresh, light toasted malts in the background. Clean. On tasting, moderate bitterness, good citrus hop flavor with balancing malt. Quite nice overall and worth drinking.
