Combined Harvest is a unique combination of brewing worts, or extracts from a variety of cereals. Most premium ales are brewed only using malted barley, but this multigrained beer has a unique multigrain blend of malted barley, oats, rye and wheat. Grainy tasting with a delightful floral start and finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy golden with no head. Very oxidized and stale aroma of cardboard, honey and some rotten fruits. Sweet flavor of cardboard and honey. Medium-bodied. Really oxidized and unpleasant.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2014
Golden colour with a marshmallowy white head and definite sparkle. There are aromas of citrussy mandarin and spicy grains. The flavour brings out the spicy rye and gentle graininess. An interesting beer, but light and approachable. Good for ruminative autumnal afternoons.

chinchill (3881) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Undated 500ml(?) bottle served in a snifter. Body is a nice medium orange-brown, but the head is small and rather weak. Aroma: good aroma similar to a regular brown ale, Flavor: to my surprise, I believe the multi-grain origin is quite apparent; suggests multigrain bread, particularly in the aftertaste. Certainly has way more complexity than a typical ESB or brown ale. Feel; Medium carbonation; near medium body seems slightly thin; semi-dry finish. O: a fine ESB worth seeking out.

Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 500 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy light copper pour, light off-white filmy head. Aroma has some light molasses notes, a hint of orange marmalade. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus notes, a touch of dates and molasses, a touch of yeast and honey. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it., Session worthy.

gunnar (7509) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe.County # 40. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of grainy malts. Taste is moderate sweet grains, hay, bread and with a light dry citrussy end. Not bad.

rondphoto (3620) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 23, 2013
@Weilands Market/Columbus Clear golden copper with a long 1/2" head, light, isolated swirls of lace. Taste is caramel malt with other grains added, which creates trouble rather than interest. The"adjuncts" mostly add sour vegetable extract, with no growth or change through the palate. The finish is very lightly bittered. Not a keeper.

Flowery aroma with a little funkiness. Flavor is smooth and very sweet, with some caramel and dark fruit. A little bitterness provides some balance in a somewhat watery finish. Decent, but not worth seeking out, even if you like ESBs as much as I do.
