Yards "Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale"
Yards Brewing Company - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA
American Strong Ale (ABV 8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear medium brown with a slight orange hue and an average (1-2 finger) off-white creamy head that lasted a decent time, finally reducing to a large puddle with a medium collar and had good streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, citrus hops and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark fruit (grapes and plums) and possessed a slight alcohol tinge.

The taste very lightly sweet and a bit malty with a hint of toffee from the start, then slowly became exceptionally bitter with a note of dark fruit and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a decently long time after the swallow, with a strong bitterness left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body and slightly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a good powerful tasting brew with a nice bitter malty fruitiness...
