COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2013
0.355l can from my secret Santa 2012. This is a light cloudy deep dark chestnut-red one with a nice almost creamy looking medium sized top. On the nose it’s both spicy with caramelized pickled ginger, sweet caramel, and hoppy with a nice dark fruitiness. It smells almost a bit Christmassy, and definitely interesting. It’s somewhat average on the carbonation and it has a soft oily mouthfeel. More bitter than I would have imagined. Dusty straw, traces of licorice, dark slightly burned bread and a bit medicinal in the finish. Loads of things going on in this little puppy. Bitter, zesty and lingering slightly burned spicy aftertaste. I’m not quite sure, but I think I’m starting to enjoying this. 23.12.2012

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 25, 2012
From 12 oz. can into a lager glass. Nice presentation. Deep amber color with persistent carbonation that produced a cap of thick ¼ inch white head. Nose has fresh, vibrant hops with some fall-type spices. Flavor has a bit of graininess with decent amount of malt, followed by the spice mixture and rounded out with mild pine bitterness. The bitterness is almost IPA in nature. Malt and spice make it balanced well enough. Overall it has nice drinkability.

JStax (3244) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce can thanks to lukaduke. Love the can. Pours a semi-hazy amber color with a a large, velvety head of beige foam. Very good retention. The aroma has a good bit of rye influence with a nice citrusy hop profile. Taste has a fruity sweetness with a nice orange peel bitterness riding atop a mellow oaky note. Bitter on the back of the tongue.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Really surprised by the low ratings of this. Crimson colored hue with a rocky eggshell head. Pretty damn complex with citrus, caramel, oak, honey, spice, tangerine zest, mango, papaya, and a touch of ginger. Whew! That was a lot. Somehow, it comes together. Enjoyed it.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours a nice deep amber color with a big frothy eggshell head that hangs out like a good buddy ! Aromas are zesty spice, slightly funky yeasty notes and a good rustic graininess. On the palate its got a big malt backbone almost nutty with glimpses of rye spice, pepper and citrus to brighten the whole thing up a lil bit. Bit of bitterness cleans up the medium to full mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid beer and one of my favorite local autumn selections.

Bulk_Carrier (2271) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a dark red/brown colored body and leaves a three finger white foamy head that must last at least two and a half minutes. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. There is some nice minimal spider web lacing here and there. The smell has some rye up front with a fair amount of malts combined evenly with the hops. The taste is basically the same leaving a slight dry aftertaste. The palate has a light to medium body and leaves a great feel on my tongue (nothing harsh, just right). Overall, this is another great beer by Baxter that I would definitely have again.

puboflyons (2228) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. can. It pours medium amber with a long lasting cream colored, foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and earthy or floral hops bit neither takes over the other. Medium body. Same type of taste with maybe the slightest herbal bite. Very much like a standard pale ale.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2013
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!

TheHOFF43 (1759) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep red with a 1/2 inch of fluffy head. Aroma is spices and hops. Flavor is Christmasy spices, some bitter hops and some fruit and bread in there as well. Not my kind of beer, but its well done.
