Notes/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.

A good ale that does not taste anywhere as strong (8%) as it is.

Pours a clear light red with little head. Nice clean caramel malt aroma with little hops. Caramel and a bit of toffee amid a bread crust note. Nice caramel flavor with medium low hop bitterness. Nice bready notes throughout. A nice brown ale.
