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.

Pours hazy amber into a shaker. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and spice aromas. Full with sweet caramel and resin upfront turning dry in the vegetal spice finish. Becomes a little harsh as it warms.

2013-08-16. Dark amber body with a small beige head. 3+ Sort of floral aroma, modest malt. Whispers of rye? Maybe? 7+ Flavour is moderately bitter throughout with mild grainy rye like notes. Light fruity accents. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Okay. Can At Campground Brewdown.

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.

Mild, fruity/spicy aroma. Flavor starts bready, with a little minty rye and ginger. Spicy hop finish. Different and pretty good.

TATE (357) - Lubec, Maine, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Can. Pours a murky brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma is full of hops which translates to the taste which has a lot of grapefruit hops flavor at the beginning finishing a bit peppery with the hop bitterness lingering. At 6.6% the alcohol sneaks up on you after a few. Overall, a good ale.

AirForceHops (4345) - 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.

Leighton (13789) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Can at the cabin in NH. Pours murky, red-brown with suspended yeast floaties and a frothy, white head. The nose has rich brown bread, light nutmeg, some ripe orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with grainy brown bread, nutmeg, other spices, cinnamon, mild earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with candied fruits, orange, dirt, grains, light alcohol. OK.

John25 (1030) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Can. Dark amber. Spiced citrus aroma. The taste adds toast, sweet malts, orange, black pepper notes, and a citrus resin on the finish. Pretty complex overall with a medium rich mouthfeel. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
