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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very faint piney aroma
Head Large (4.5 cm), off white, frothy,
Lacing good – mostly complete lacy rings of very small bubbles; slowly diminishing to a thick irregular frothy layer
Body medium yellow, slight haze
Flavor very mild, slight hop bitterness rapidly yielding to a faint malt sweetness, fading to a bitter aftertaste. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

A pleasantly refreshing ale which neatly hides the 8% ABV. This seems like a lawnmower beer until it runs over you.
