COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zymaster Series No. 5 (7.2% ABV) is made with a special blend of pale, caramel, and Munich malts, which contribute a distinctively complex maltiness and deep golden color. Nugget hops give it a tangy bitterness. But the hallmark of Zymaster 5: Harvest One American Pale Ale is the intriguingly novel aroma of an experimental new hop, which was used liberally in both the brewhouse and the cellar. A late addition to the boil plus dry hopping provides Harvest One with an incredibly lively hop aroma reminiscent of tree-ripened peaches, with just a hint of fresh melon. The result is a uniquely exciting new beer unlike anything brewed or tasted before.

I wasnít expecting this flavor profile, but I guess itís somewhat in tune with other Anchor beers. Itís a definitely unique flavor for a pale ale. Bitter. My first sip was not happy, but itís getting better as I work through the bottle. Looks nice in the cup and smells malty. Not the best beer in their arsenal. I havenít tried the other 4 in this series, so I canít compare. But, I tried it and, most likely, wonít again. Donít mistake this as me saying itís bad. Just not my style. Itís all good. I still love you, Anchor Brewing Company.

(Bottle). Clear copper complexion with thick head and glass lacing. Malty aroma. Flavor is balanced but with some biting alcohol. Not as smooth as anticipated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1150) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Deep amber / orange brew with tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, tart fruit, green hops, earth. Taste is an upfront mix of sweet caramel malts and bitter / tart fruity hops. Swallow ends iwht more earth and citrus hops emerging on top of it all. A bit ponderous but tasty.

trapped (748) - New York City, TURKEY - APR 11, 2014
Drought. Amber-orange with creamy tan head, doughy aroma, flat sweetish hoppy taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish with bitter aftertaste. A bit thin and flat for my liking.

Tap East. Keg. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Light crisp palate. Minerals. Smooth malt with a fair bit of toffee - caramel sweetness. Light cream. Bitterish pine on the backend. Light crisp finish. A sweetish and messy pale ale, was intrigued by the new hops but they put so much malt in the way I couldnít taste íem. A disappointment!

freeofthoughts (648) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Tap pours a dark goldish copper with some eggshell suds. The aroma is rich with some caramel malts and earthy grassy hops. The flavor starts strange with some grassy floral hops, a light pine, and rich malts but in an awkward way with some sweet lemony thing popping in. The finish is a little better with a decent unique pale ale flavor. Overall ok but not what Iíd hope for from anchor.

Draft. Nose of citrus zest with woody tones. Cloudy reddish color. Tart and citrus flavor with some nauseating puke kinda thing in the finish. Not a fan.

Keg at gaslight brewery. Aroma of citrus, I didnít get the peach and wasnít very intense. Amber color, brilliant clarity. Taste was of citrus and grapefruit hops with a one dimensional grainy malt flavor. Body was medium low. Overall, had a nice potential but finish lacked depth in malt character and hop bitterness overwhelmed hop flavor and aroma.

Ratman197 (9664) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2014
On tap at Backcountry Pizza poured a clear amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, grapefruit zest and pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish.
