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.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Has a pretty copper color. Smell is mild, slightly sweet. Taste is a bit unusual, bready, hops, alcohol, lots of flavors pulling in different directions. Overall a mediocre beer.

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.

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
