As days get shorter and sleeves get longer, Baxter Brewing releases its fall seasonal, Hayride Autumn Ale. A generous portion of two rye malts give the beer a full body, bready flavor, and subtle spiciness; while toasted malts provide a touch of sweetness and a rich, almost reddish hue. New Zealand Pacifica and Pacific Jade hops balance Hayride’s maltiness and suggest notes of oranges and tropical fruit. Finally, we cold-condition the beer on oak, with light additions of ginger, black pepper, and orange peel, bringing out the spiciness of the rye and rounding out the soft sweetness of the beer. Hayride will give a touch of warmth for those cool fall nights, while remaining deliciously drinkable.

12oz can @ Duckfat: This one pours a cloudy, amber color. There was a large frothy tan head on it. Almost no lacing. It has a nice nose. Spice, pine and rye notes. The taste is very good. Rye, spice, hint of pine. Perhaps a touch of orange and ginger. A touch bitter. Very Nice!

Smell of malt, hop, cinnamon, delightful. A very clean and attractive cloudy amber color. Cool plaid can. Sharp and bitter taste. Very hoppy, could probably be labeled as a pale ale. THIS is a September/October seasonal.
