COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full hop regiment attributes to a fresh citrus aroma and earthy flavor all balanced by lightly toasted malts. Not long ago, workers would be called to their union mandated beer breaks with the pull of the chain activated steam whistle. Beer bucket boys would hustle cold brew out to the workers before they returned to the production line. Our Pull Chain Pail Ale is a tribute to the working men and women who built this great city. Back to work!

On tap at the pub. Orange color with a nice off-white head and a nose full of citrus hops. Caramel sweetness and better body than the Soloman Juneau, but still dominated by the hop. There is a noticable hop burn on the tongue. Better with food.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
On tap @ the brewpub: Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Aroma, citrus and pale malts, some floral notes as well. Flavor was very similar to the aroma, decent beer.

Gusher of a bottle. Extra lively floaty laden amber with a large slowly dissipating rocky white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grain and orange. Taste of caramel and pale malts and citrus. Body is over-carbonated but balanced and has a mild to moderate bitter finish. Ok.

bottle 7/12/10. pale coppery orange with a white head. it smells mostly of orange, grass, sweet grain and spicy hops. caramel malt flavor stands out in front of citrus, earth, grass and a touch of spice on the finish. medium bodied with a little extra oomph from the malt. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2012
This pours cloudy pale orange into the glass and is topped by a small soapy head. Bright citrus up front, this wanes to an earthy, grassy bitterness balanced by a slight sweetness. Soft but vigorous carbonation suits the light texture, making for a drinkable beer that is not at all watery. Some lemon notes come out in the finish as well as perhaps just a slightly overstrong amount of bitterness. This is almost a home run. I could see some slight adjustments making this really excellent.

Pretty good. Easy drinking. Nothing special. Golden pour. Little head. Yeast and wheat for this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
