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!

guzzler67 (1639) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Slightly hazed, bright amber appearance with a small off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Muted aroma of sweet malts and floral hops. Traditional hop flavors, including citrus and spice, but all low-keyed, moderately bitter and balanced by sweet grains. Light to medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.

dresden (1293) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours a golden orange with a short white head. Aroma is skunky noble hops, some herbal perfume aroma. Taste is not too bad, light in flavour, slight stickiness. Ok.

Emeister84 (1891) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Aromas are very subtle honey, bread, and golden raisins. Gold with a mostly fading, white head. Off-dry with some mild fruity flavors. Light bodied with refreshing carbonation, and finishes slightly fruity and a little sticky. Not unlike a Kolsch.

It is a very golden color and smells like an American lager versus what we know as an American Pale Ale. It is underwhelming and I really expected more. Lager flavor, with slight hops dryness. Out of all the beers I could have picked this was not a great choice for an American Pale Ale. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle from Kroger. Light orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is carboard, grass, and light citrus. Taste is bready, maybe some orange, and more cardboard grain. Weird finish.

asedzie (783) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden with pillowy white head. Nose is very mild, even lagerish, but good - grassy and slightly fruity hops, graininess and a slight hint of fresh yeast. First sip has a bevy of flavors that far exceed the expectations set up by the aroma. Good rich malt backbone for an ale on the paler side, bread dough, mild toastiness, balanced throughout by assertive notes of alpha acid, all followed up by a palate cleansing burst of slightly piney bitterness. I’m rating this on its own merit, with its history in mind - as opposed to considering in comparison with current exemplars of the style - and I’m see how this must have really woken up the palate of a whole generation of young people disillusioned bland corporate lagers.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of frains and light floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Grains with floral and light earthy herbal hops. A little citrus in there too. Full bodied with a creamy and slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($2): Pours orange with a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is light citrus and some malts. Taste is light hops. Tiny amount of bitterness. Pretty bland and forgettable, but pleasantly drinkable.

BeerandBlues2 (11659) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle @ home. Pours clear pale orange with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, peach and pear fruity esters, and light honey and biscuit malt. Flavor is fruity esters, medium hops and bitterness with balanced malt and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
