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.

Very good copper pour w/ a big white head that slowly fades & leaves good lacing. The aroma is of sweet malt which is similar to the taste. Crisp yet very smooth at 8%. This is a very solid beer and exceeded my expectations.

on draft west of philly. Its another long trail/magic hat type beer. Slightly worse than a sam adams. Plain, grainy, just enough bitterness for balance.

WillRunForBeer (641) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2013
From eelbasher in locals 5.5, thanks Andrew! Pours golden amber with a tan head that falls quick. Aroma is like an oatmeal cookie with a little bit of citrus. Sweet malt is dominant, flavors of caramel, molasses, and just enough pine hop to counter the sweetness between sips. Carbonation is a touch more prickly than I would like.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep, clear, copper color, with a small creamy tan head that settles slowly. Aroma of dark fruits with, black cherries, and a tiny whiff of alcohol. Flavor has a nice sweetness, dark fruits, black cherries, plums, very light hints of caramel. Finishes with a slightly spicy dryness and a hop bitterness. Medium body, very smooth, moderate carbonation.
