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!

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.

Clear golden with a small whitish head. Aroma of grass, bread, and light citrus. Taste is light and malty with a mild bitterness. Light-medium bodied and slightly dry.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Read the interesting story behind this one so felt compelled to try it. 12oz bottle into pint glass, light gold color with white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt and earthy/citrus hops. Taste is much the same, maybe some fruity notes. Light body, medium carbonation, crisp, clean with some lingering hop bitterness. Is it the most amazing APA I’ve ever had? Nope. But from a historical perspective I see why this amazed people compared to the then boring pale lager, and how far APA’s have come. Overall a good experience, a nice easy drinking APA for warm days to come.

Somewhat cloudy yellow-orange pour, nice and bright. Musty, yeasty aroma. Flavor is odd. Bitter, citrusy with some bread/malt notes. Crisp finish, lingering earthiness. To be honest, I like it. A bit different, pale ale is a broad category and this one fits the bill.

Aroma is citrus, yeast and mildly gritty malts. The flavor is citrus, mildly gritty malts and a mix of bitter and mild tartness in the finish.

Bottle.This is not your normal pale ale. Had a distinct earthy oaky flavor to it. Not bitter, but hoppy. Light brown beer. Nice aroma, if a little flat. Small amount of citrus in taste. Has a good small hoppy flavor. Definitely to try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really interesting ale; if it wasn't a one-off, this would be a great warm weather Sam Adams(along with Summer, and Noble Pils). I haven't had anything like this: there's hoppiness and a lemony flavor(similar to Stone 16th anniversary, albeit a muted version). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
