Sackets Harbor War of 1812 Ale (NY)

Sackets Harbor Brewing's War of 1812 Ale plays up the history of its region (eastern edge of Lake Ontario). I liked their Thousands Island Pale Ale, but War of 1812 turns out to be "safer," which I suppose isn't surprising given that it's their flagship beer.

It pours clear golden, not rich amber, without much of a head. Not a whole lot of aroma either. It has considerably less citrus hoppiness than the pale ale, which isn't unexpected, but unfortunately there isn't enough malt to pick up the slack. Slightly bready/biscuity, and only very faintly of caramel sweetness, War of 1812 really goes down easy -- too easy, I think. The body is nicely crisp, if a tad thin. I wouldn't mind knocking down several of these on a warmer evening, but in a world of interesting craft beer, this one isn't worth seeking. Not disagreeable, but not memorable either.

We recently sampled the 1812 Amber Ale. We agree with your post, as we found the historical piece of its name to be more interesting than the flavor.

It's a good beer, with sweet flavor and also the best caramel. I think we can't ignore the history about it, specially if we're a professionals in this issue (drinking beers, of course) and the color of this beer is great and have a nice presentation too.
