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!

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours dark orange witgh a small white head. Aroma is balanced between sweet caramel and some soft citric hoppiness. Definitely a bit of a bready cracker note. Flavor starts sweet and mildly citric again. Some floral hops and a graininess towards the finish which has a light bitterness. Medium body and crisp carbonation.

MaltOne (310) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On Tap - nice looking beer - light amber, creamy head. Resin and light citrus aroma. (Based on little experience in this area), it is an American style, a little more roasted malt and a lttle less of the floral notes then an English style. Pleasantly refreshing on the palate. Overall a solid beer.

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, 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)

jsquire (4106) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2004
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.

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.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
On tap @ the brewpub: Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Aroma, citrus and pale malts, some floral notes as well. Flavor was very similar to the aroma, decent beer.

esjaygee (3904) - 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.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2009
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.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a rich amber color with a lot of particulate and medium off white head. Aroma is of light floral hops, some light citrus, spiciness and some caramel malt. Taste is citrus and resinous hops with light caramel backbone and some odd twang like character in the finish. Not bad, but something I’d pass up on amongst other choices.

Nice hop smell and light golden amber color. The taste is similar to most Ipas, more bitter than normal.
