Jack McAuliffe’s pioneering spirit paved the way for the American craft beer revolution. We’re rereleasing his original Pale Ale, with its distinct American hop character for the first time in 30 years in honor of Jack and his contributions to craft brewing. Cheers!

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle. Deeply golden, average white head. Sweet and biscuity, with a peachy fruit character and a medium bitter finish that dries things out. Not bad, not great either. I’m not sure how I feel about this beer. I think I was let down a little. I don’t know. It’s late.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Solid beer. Poured a clear effervescent dark yellow. Aroma is light citrus, crackers. Super mellow, super low key. I imagine drinking this in the days when America was more of a beer desert would have been like sipping ambrosia from the gods, but as it stands now, the beer is a nice reminder of how far the beer scene has come.

musinj6 (391) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Pours an almost clear golden straw color with one finger head that leaves small to moderate lacing. Aroma initially of toasted malt, followed by a very surprising mild hoppy grapefruit presence. This is fantastic. Medium body with mild/moderate carbonation that is not to strong with creamy mouthfeel. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a fine ale.

thetmaxx (745) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty like a draft Sierra. Flavor is similar very malty, some hop character. Maybe citrus hops. Not bad, comparable to most pale ales. Doesn’t finish to dry. Cloudy pour, decent lacing.

Pours a light-to-medium gold with a thin creamy head. Nice floral nose at first that mellows into a yeasty, thicker aroma. Creamyish, sticky mouthfeel. Not much depth overall. Yeasty, mild flavors. Moderately carbonated.

drjay44 (2617) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thinnish off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear, golden body.....nose is cereal malts, light hop spice.....tasste is light malts, light fruit (pear, apple), slight sweetness, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a minimal tingle. This is an under hopped, lightly malted American Pale Ale. This is an old recipe and as such shows the tremendous evolution of American brewing. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7
