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.

Bottle from sampler pack. Pours clear golden amber with fizzy off-white head. Aroma is bready malts, pear, floral notes, faint booze, and light caramel. Flavor is dry malts, medium hops, light booze, and some light tropical fruit notes; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (3497) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2014
From a bottle. Pours almost clear light copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes strong like booze with a hint of dryness, but also very smooth. Earthy, light ash, tobacco, raisin. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light booze, dry raisins, dough, and earth.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Very antique offering from Yards. The opening brought me back to the 1700s with hints of hibiscus and overtones of wheat grass. Complete through the finish with a hefty kiss of hops. --you've been Dubbed.

This is a great beer. Light aroma and color, not hoppy at all, with great body and a great balance of sweet and bitter. I loved it.

Literally my favorite Yards Brew. Often had this one at the Tasting Room on Delaware Avenue. Malt forward, with a slight rye bite, which the honey from the bright tanks mellows so nicely. At 8%, the booze is VERY well hidden. Great beer for just about anytime.

Emeister84 (1640) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Aromas of nutty malts, earthy hops, corn cereal, and hints of spice. Clear, deep gold-amber with a mostly fading off-white head. Dry, malt-forward. Medium bodied, smooth.

Hoppy aroma with nice golden color. Malty front end with a strong hop finish. Hops lingers long after.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a bright red and orange with lots of bubbles pulling upward. Aroma is wort-ish and bready. Tastes a bit green and undercooked. Because it’s a historical beer. I can’t claim with certainty that it is under done. Some baking bread notes but otherwise not tasting good to me.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours pale gold color with a small head of foam. Aroma of honey and wheat. Taste of bitter citrus hops, honey, and wheat.
