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!

I was so intruiged by the story on the side of the 6 pack carrier, that I had to purchase this. Hazy amber pour into a S. A. Perfect Pint glass. Aroma of malt, hay & light hops. Slightly sweet upfront, decent malt backbone, subtle hop on the finish. More fizz on the tongue than expected. Left with a funk in my mouth.

Light golden pour, white head. Minimal hop bitterness. Cracker, light bready malts. OK.

Interesting concept beer. It’s a good way to show how far brewing has come over the years. Pours yellow with orange tint. Aroma is earthy/hay. Taste is slightly sweet fruit with a dry finish.

Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, light herbs, with faint apple in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with spotty and slippery lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, a bit slick and has a lively carbonation. A nice tasting American Pale Ale. Simple but it does have a nice bite at the end.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of soft, pale malts with hints of toast and light floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. Was hoping for better.

Bottle from GE express. Pours golden yellow with thin white head. Grassy hop and sweet corn nose. Corn. Lots of corn. Some bread and mild hop flavor, lingering and sticky. Meh.

Beer reminded me of Budweiser at the first smell. I don’t get much hops for taste all to some bitterness. it has good body and decent mouth feel. the be reminded me of a Budweiser with the more body and warm out field by much hops and um know if this is for craft beer was I probably never would have gone into the craft beer because it’s

From a 12 ounce bottle. Yellow-honey color and a bit of head because i poured it haphazardly. A bit of the hops on the nose, but may potentially contain other grains than barley. A bit bitter, but nothing special. Tastes like a spruced up PBR.

Moderate citrus aroma. Pale gold appearance with a white head that dissipated quickly. Nice citrus hop flavor. Not overpowering. Balanced with a bready grain flavor. Medium-light body with a moderately-high carbonation. Overall, its a nice, smooth moderately hopped pale ale. I enjoyed tasting this piece of history.
