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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Had with Mark and Sarah while cooking Christmas dinner. Pours a light orange/brown without too much head. I adore he label and the concept. Nose is wheat and bread malt. Fairly dark and complex. Flavor is a huge honey burst. Pretty sweet with a lot of medium/dark malts. Not getting the oranginess I usually associate with wheat beer. Really good. Palate is medium. Enough to chew and not something to chug. Overall, I️ love the honey malty sweetness and the concept is absolutely amazing. This is a fantastic beer.

12 oz. bottle shared by my buddy Tim. Thanks again! Pours a clear, deep, slightly orange-hued gold with a small eggshell white head that settles into a ring. Sweet malts lead the way in this one, with notes of cereal, honey, straw, earth, wheat, grass, and mellow, subtle spice. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Wonder how close it really is to the original article.

This is indeed strong Ale. Pours a nice orange. 8% ABV is evident, with alcohol taste. Found myself chasing with water by the time I finished it. Other beers hide an ABV like this better (I.e. Troegenator). The Yards Presidential/Revolution Series is an interesting idea, just this one a bit strong tasting for me.

nice little kick to it this brew has some golden malt to it and a bit of hop. pleasant sweetness the brew is beery and amped up a bit. a little oil to the palate it is substantial while not heavy. nicely refreshing and satisfying.

12oz bottle @ Renaissance PHL. Aroma is sweet malt. Orangish amber color, little head, little lacing. Flavor is a little caramel, light malt, med bitterness. Med body. Overall not a bad beer. Kind of mainstream.

Pours rich golden color with white head. Aroma is grainy malt with herbal hops. Flavor is sweet malt and some grain, a hint of sweet hone and a slight bitter hop finish.
