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!

Bottle to tulip glass. Color is light, clear amber with a medium foamy white head and lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt with tropical fruit and a distinct spiciness. Reminds me somewhat of bubble gum. Taste is a balance between malt and hops with a sweetness that gives way to a light bitterness. The fruit and spice comes through but all the tastes are light and and blend well. I am surprised by how predominate the sweetness is. A medium body with a light astringency and good carbonation. An understated, pleasant ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (836) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a clear, slightly carbonated, pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma consists of floral hops on top, grass, some lemon, and bread. The taste is somewhat muted. Instead of the tasting something out of what I gathered from the aroma, instead it is rather grainy. Actually, it is still bready, and I get a bit of a metallic taste in there, especially at the end. Short metallic and bready aftertaste. It is crisp when drinking. Light in body with some decent carbonation in here. Not among my favorites.

BroSpud (2061) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with very little white head. Easy drinking pale with a clean crispness to it. The simplicity in this one is it’s strength. No over the top hops or distinctive flavors just a good clean pale ale.

Capa (2758) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Golden copper with a white head. Aroma is fruity, apple, malty, light yeast, and sweet. Medium thin body. Flavor is sweet fruity, light malts, light floral notes. Lightly bitter finish. Easy going pale. A bit surprised it is 6% abv, doesn’t taste like it. Enjoyable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours an effervescent gold with a frothy white head. The nose has a touch of skunkiness with a light fruitiness. Overall rather "beery". The flavor has light florals, with some cracker and light malt sweetness. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Crisp and clean. Simple but enjoyable in an age of overhopped, high test, barrel aged madness.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2013
A hazy golden ale with a decent white head that revives with a swirl. Light malt and straw nose. Medium light body, moderately sweet, with lively carbonation. Good hoppiness to cut through the sweet malt.

jeremyh70 (1068) - Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a light gold with a finger and a half of sudsy white head that doesn't stay around to long and leaves little lacing. Has a light aroma of toffee and a hint of spice and citrus from hops. Taste follows nose with malt sweetness present first then earthy and spicy/peppery hop flavor. Mild bitterness in finish. Medium and crisp mouthfeel from high carbonation and drinkable. Nice to be able to try this groundbreaking beer, even if the flavor is unremarkable compared to beers today. Kudos to Jack McAuliffe and Boston Brewing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (9662) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Mostly clear light golden pour with a small white head. Would be a solid pils but as an APA it’s a bit weak.

travita (4860) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, golden in color, lacing white head. The smell is bread crumbs, malt, fruit, floral, pine, and grapefruit. The taste is hops, floral, pine, and malts.

Pours a light golden color, very mild pale ale and very drinkable, could use some more hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
