Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: NeroFiddled on 08-01-2002

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.

I've had this both on tap and in bottle. The latter is more subdued and hop-forward, while the tap version has a sweetness on the front end which was pleasantly surprising. Either way, this is a well-balanced ale which is imminently drinkable and (for better or worse) never belies its high octane nature.
