Barley Days Brewery’s lush Harvest Gold Pale Ale lives up to its name. It has a bright golden body, with a creamy white head, and a surprisingly rich flavour. The mellow blend of light apple, peach, and spice aromas on a pale malt base, is complemented by a hoppy finish that is reminiscent of fresh-cut hay and autumn fields. Harvest Gold Pale Ale is a refined old world recipe with a modern day taste that will brighten your day with its sumptuous flavour.

Bottle from Brewpub Pours golden with light head which disappeared after a few seconds. For some reason, felt stronger than the 4.8% alcool. Somewhat of a citrusy finish that I can’t understand. Not a great beer. Not a Pale Ale as suggested on the label!

Picked up a couple 341ml bottles from the brewery. Pours an average size frothy off-white head but dissipates fairly quickly and has a clear golden appearance. Lacing is ok. Aromas of light roasted malts, a bit of yeast and notes of herbal hops. Flavours are mainly on the malty side, a little bit of bitterness and also some notes of wheats and bready malts. Good retention. Average carbonation. Not bad.

Bendrixian (1471) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
pour a clear amber colour. Sort of muted aroma but there is some floral hops and big malty backbone. medium bodied, flat brew some bitter finish. It is sort of made in an english style of beer. I’ve had better.

Strangebrewer (1133) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
bottle. Poured clear amber with a creamy off white head. Inviting aroma, an earthy straw note. Light body, average carbonation, tart finish. Flavour is sweet and sour, wheat malty base with some citrusy hops.

Pour at the Hole in the Wall -- awesome hallway size bar in the Junction -- is a bloody mess. Taste is sour malts, bruised hops & pennies steeped on water. Very disappointing. I’d advise a pass on this one.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Bouteille 650ml sous le nom de "Glenora Springs Roger’s Red Coat Pale Ale". De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, léger d’épices avec des notes de houblon herbeux et quelques traces fruitées (pommes vertes). Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement huileuse. Léger goût fruité (notes d’agrumes et de pommesvertes ) avec des notes d’épices lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des traces de caramel doux puis en finale, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. Post-goût moyen aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes épicées. (2006)

From bottle. Fresh aroma, light grass some floral notes. Easy drinker, good season ale. Not particularly complex but smooth bitterness post light malt flavor.

BreWedge (471) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
341 ml bottle @ The Bull and Boar Belleville. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma hard to discern. Taste is a sharp grainy malt and some yeasty notes. Mildly tinny. Creamy mouthfeel with a mildly bitter finish. Much prefer their Yuletide Cherry Porter.
