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!

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.

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)

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.

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.

Pretty good. Easy drinking. Nothing special. Golden pour. Little head. Yeast and wheat for this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2005
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.

badgerben (4889) - 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.

muzzlehatch (4840) - Beloit, Wisconsin, 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.

On tap at the pub. Orange color with a nice off-white head and a nose full of citrus hops. Caramel sweetness and better body than the Soloman Juneau, but still dominated by the hop. There is a noticable hop burn on the tongue. Better with food.

This pours cloudy pale orange into the glass and is topped by a small soapy head. Bright citrus up front, this wanes to an earthy, grassy bitterness balanced by a slight sweetness. Soft but vigorous carbonation suits the light texture, making for a drinkable beer that is not at all watery. Some lemon notes come out in the finish as well as perhaps just a slightly overstrong amount of bitterness. This is almost a home run. I could see some slight adjustments making this really excellent.
