COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We the Brewers of Avery Brewing Company, in order to form a more perfect ale, require a new leadership that can liberate us from our quagmires in foreign lands; embrace environmentally sound energy alternatives to imported oil; heal our ailing health care system; free us from tyrannical debt and resurrect the collapsing dollar. We hereby pledge to provide him or her with an ample amount of our Presidential Pale Ale to support in the struggle for the aforementioned goals! Hail to the New Chief!

Not an "Imperial" pale ale, this is a democracy. Its Presidential! Take the all-American pale ale, a bipartisan blend of malt and hops, increase to both Avery Brewing standards, and then, of course, dry hop the result with that most quintessential of American hops, Cascades, and you get this... Ale to the Chief. A brew worthy of the Oval Office! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops and yeast.

22oz bottle poured at home. Very caramel forward. Glad I am having this fresh, otherwise it would be an orange bomb that I hate. Good, but not sure I need pickup another bottle anytime soon.

So, Im looking at the comments from everyone else and wondering if this was a bad bottle... because Ive never said this about any Avery beer: this is subpar piss. Tastes like an old, stale and oxidized IPA. Maybe I got the bottle intended for Donald Trump?
