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!

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 (2542) - 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.

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 (8912) - 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 (4642) - 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

HonkeyBra (3902) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Bright, golden pour with a big white head. Aroma of mild flowers, caramel malt, some fruit, Flavor is fresh and clean, hoppy, delicious. This is quite believably a 30 year old recipe. And, more importantly, I can imagine buying this beer and having my mind blown. This is an excellent pale ale still. Light bodied, super heavy carbonation. Very carbonated. Finishes fruity and bitter.
