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.

Nice scent, good light brown appearance, taste was favorable, good on the palate, a good overall beer, I just had a first taste, will buy again in a six pack. This one I got at a package store, that let you fill your own six pack, with a choice of about 12 different brews.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2014
On tap. Aroma of rye, malt, and slight resin hop. Pours deep red/brown with a nice white malty head. Taste is malt forward with some nice rye and earthy hop. Overall, tastes like a really good homebrew. The weakest of Yards’ presidents methinks.

joejames (307) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours amber golden, two finger head with some lacing. Aroma of is peppery with honey and caramel notes. Taste is complex yeasty sweet, only a slight spruce bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finishes sweet with notes of caramel, yeast, apple, sour cherry, honey and slight alcohol. Good beer but I would prefer more hops but I’m not T J.

12 ounce bottle. Deep orange gold color. Foamy beige head of two fingers high. Nice clinging lace. Aroma is slightly fruity malt with a slight rye grain and baked bread touch. Complex, fruity toasted malt flavor has notes of honey, rye, nuts and citrus hops. A mouthful of complexity. Some alcohol taste in finish.
