COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This powerful and complex golden ale pays homage to Founding Father and fellow brewer, Thomas Jefferson. Yards Brewmaster, Tom Kehoe, worked closely with Philadelphia’s historic City Tavern to recreate this recipe, employing honey, rye, and wheat, just like the beer Jefferson made at Monticello.

Pours amber-orange with a one finger off white head which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of eye, citrus, pine, spicy hops, bready malts, sweet malts, and some toffee. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly warming, medium-lonf finish. Overall, a pretty tasty American strong ale, especially considering the age of the recipe Yard’s used.

On tap at Castlebay Irish Pub. Amber body with nice head. Nose of malts, rye and some hops. Taste is rye, wheat and some hop. Not very good in my opinon. Too strong and full forced.

Pours attractive orange-amber with small off-white head that leaves small lacing. Aroma is straightforward: malt, rye, pine. A bit more complexity in the glass especially as it warms, with caramel, dough, floral hops, medium but not lingering bitterness. Higher ABV than expected from the light body. Interesting from an historical perspective, but closer to unobjectionable than exceptional.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Average appearance. Aroma is neutral.. a bit of malt. Taste is distinctive.. quite a bit of rye and alcohol is apparent. It is unique, different. Not bad.

So glad to be home with an ale that has great flavor. Rich amber color. Deep malt and bitters with a slight fruit taste. Go for this when you want an ale. Bottle.

Pours a hazy amber gold. Has a faint malt, rye, and pine aroma. Has a malty taste with caramel, grains, and earthy flavors. A dry and bitter malt aftertaste.
