Procured a bottle of 1812 from a nice chap in a pub in Lake Placid back in 2004 and brought it home to NJ and it sat in the beer fridge until now. Well it poured amber clear and frothy leaving a creamy head of off-white color with a nice show of various size bubbles, mostly lasting, that left a fair amount of lacing. A layer of sediment remained in the bottle giving me a clue that this is going to be a "real" beer. A light bread malty aroma followed with a slight flower hoppiness and to me no residual yeast nose. Initial moderate malt flavor and light bitterness gave way to a nice semi-sweet malt and hint of bitterness in the finish. I did detect sulfur and at the same time a maple fragrance that quickly faded. I enjoyed this brew and will slow down and exit the Northway to see if I can pick up a supply to carry out a session.

a not quite amber pale ale. pours as average as can be, clear golden with only a hint of red color to it, small head. smells malty and boring, and the taste is similar, but with some sort of sour finish, almost like a weaker version of a flemish sour at the end. not unpleasant at all, but it doesnt belong in this beer. its got decent drinkability but it isnt exciting enough for me to want to drink all night.
