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

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.

HonkeyBra (3382) - 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.

Pours clear and a golden-yellow color, lighter than most American pale ales. Has a distinct hoppy-lemony aroma that’s begging to be tasted. This is a delicious beer! It’s not an American pale ale by any means. There’s never a hop punch, and it’s got a much more muted flavor, almost like a sharp pilsner. There’s no caramelly sweetness that’s common in many pale ales, so you may not like it as much if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s got a robust flavor with a clean mouthfeel. This may perhaps

Light malt and grain aroma. Clear light golden color with a small white head. Mild sweet and a little bitter in the beginning with a slightly stronger bitter finish.

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle: pours a nice clear yellow with just a tiny coppery hint to the color. It has a nice foamy off white head on it. Aroma... cereal. Some faint hop floweriness if I start to look for it. The flavor is where this one shines. I wouldn’t call it exciting, but it’s nice, clean and crisp. It drinks very easily and I could see how in its time this was a revolutionary beer, and for that it gets bonus points. It’s got a nice hop bitterness, without being offensive or shocking. Nice.

Bottle. Taste is lemon peel, grass, hay and grain. Decent, but nothing to write home about.
