COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hudson is an American-style Pale Ale, with a bright, hoppy nose, smooth mouthfeel and quick, light finish. This represents a great introduction to the world of hoppy beers and should whet the appetite of true Hop Heads for what is yet to come.

Aroma is sugary English ale malts. Pale, chlorine. Strictly average. The appearance is cloudy, hazy golden yellow. Cool jetsam of carbonation. Decent slushy white head. The flavor is flowery, herbal malts. Touch of patchouli. English crystal malts, toffee and mildly roasted rye flavors. Actually kinda complex. These spicy almost wood-like malts set the tone. The palate is creamy English ale. The aroma doesn’t foretell this pleasantly sweet English pale.

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Location: Draft at the Hoboken Turtle Club, 12/18/10

Aroma: The nose is mostly grainy with a little caramel malt as well
Appearance: Pours a fairly clear copper color with a small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is mostly malty, some grainy sweetness, light citrus hop presence
Palate: The body of this one is fairly light, a touch on the metallic side, average carbonation
Overall Impression: This was my first taste of something from the New Jersey Beer Company even though its just a few miles down the road from me. Anyway, I wasn’t particularly impressed, this was basically just a boring pale ale. I’ll give them another shot, but I hope their other offerings are a little more inspired.

Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aromas and flavors of grassy hops, citrus, and caramel malts. Standard pale ale but lacks any real hop flavor.

Bottle. Clear copper with salt crystal type-sediment and white head. Aromas of caramel, grass, citrus. Flavors of caramel, toast, earth, citrus, cardboard. Drier finish. Oxidized taste. Very little hoppage. Medium body with slick mouthfeel and moderate, soft carbonation. More English than American pale ale. Just because you throw in some Cascade, doesn’t make it American.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Draft at Wine & Food Fest (A.C.): Poured a dark amber with a white head. The aroma was pale malts, honey, and hops. The flavor was honey, hops, caramel, and sweet malts. Overall, a decent beer. A little too sweet and not enough hops for me.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2010
12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Okay this brewery just started bottling so this is fresh but this can’t be the product that they wanted to put out. Poured ALL bright white head and I had to wait ten minutes for it to settle down enough before there was any actual liquid beer in my tulip. Aroma of old stale rotting bread in a pile of used band aids and rusting metal. Flavor was just about as good. DRAINPOUR!!!

honey sweet and malty with a crisp mouthfeel and vibrantly foamy head. short on hops but wih a mild fruity taste that is only remotely citrus in character. kinda like a sharp and tangy octoberfest since it has a bit of smoothness and is refined. low aroma yet, i wish my hometown brewery the best of a future!
