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.

KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with a slight orange hue and an average (1-2 finger) off-white creamy head that lasted a decent time, finally reducing to a large puddle with a medium collar and had good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, citrus hops and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark fruit (grapes and plums) and possessed a slight alcohol tinge. The taste very lightly sweet and a bit malty with a hint of toffee from the start, then slowly became exceptionally bitter with a note of dark fruit and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a decently long time after the swallow, with a strong bitterness left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body and slightly dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a good powerful tasting brew with a nice bitter malty fruitiness...

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.

Bottle at home, while I pondered my faint memories of high school history classes. I like ambitious, slightly out-of-the-ordinary beers like this. It reminded me of a gruit, with a malty and slightly vegetal taste. Unusual, but I liked it.

Nice aroma, goes down smooth however little bit of a bitter aftertaste but does not drown out the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
