COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available exclusively at Philadelphia’s historic City Tavern Restaurant. Dry hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive. Crisp, hoppy, and bursting with citrus.

Really nice pale ale on draft at the City Tavern in Philly. The beer poured a straw color with a subtle but lacing white head. The nose featured plenty of flowery and spicy hops, along with balanced hints of bread, grapefruit and pine. The flavors are very spicy, dry and hoppy. This seems quite hoppy for English-style pale ale. It seems more American-style. Enjoyable nonetheless.

Pale yellow pour with creamy white head. Light flat malt with floral hops. Semi sweet malt with a light floral bitter finish. Just a touch fizzy for me but ok

Bottle shared by decaturstevo. Yellow, hazy, big white head. Smells toasty and soapy (in a good way). Taste is fresh bread and grassy hops. Nice and easy drinking. Good Stuff!

Location: Draft at The City Tavern, 4/7/11

Aroma: The aroma is light earthy, some hoppy notes, floral notes, and yeast
Appearance: The pour is a somewhat hazy light golden in color
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose with a light, yeasty, hoppy, and crisp flavor
Palate: The body is on the light side with a crisp and drinkable mouthfeel to it
Overall Impression: This was probably my favorite of the "Ales of the Revolution" series, but they were all relatively close I guess I would have been a common man as a beer drinker. Does that make this the BMC of late 1700s? Anyway, nothing spectacular, but a solid, crisp, and drinkable beer.

On tap at City Tavern. Pours pale golden with foamy white head. Hay, resin, earthy aromas. Equal parts sour and bitter. Tasted more like a wild golden ale than an IPA. Left a somewhat long sour aftertaste in the mouth. Overall, not bad.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Rating from a bottle of Alexander Hanilton’s Federalist Ale, thanks to Linda: This poured a golden yellow body with a healthy head and very lively carbonation. Both aroma and flavor had a lot of orange zest, lemon zest, pink grapefruit, and a sweet grainy malt. It finished on a dry, mildly bitter note. Refreshing, but ths seemed to be more of an APA than the IPA that it’s currently categorized as.
