COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful red-orange beer with rich malty flavors which were “harvested” from an extra long boil in the kettle and balanced with the addition of both Chinook and East Kent Goldings hops. A well balanced, full bodied, malty seasonal ale.

Dark amber body with minimal head. Aroma is hoppy with some caramel malts. Very malty flavour with a sweetness from the caramel malts. The hops kik in mid way to balance it out. Well made and enjoyable amber.

on tap at Satelite in Seattle’s capitol hill
dark brown color with a heavy malt aroma and taste. Solid but slightly unspectacular.

Cloudy red/brown. Lots of bitter hops, but not so aromatic. Quite refreshing and light. Not much sweetness. Bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2003 The Harvest is particularily good this year ('03). Very fresh hoppy character (they grow them right there in the beer garden) and some very nicely incorporated grains to round out the beer perfectly. The bitterness is a bit through the roof sacrificing the flavor some. But still wheaty, hoppy goodness.

On tap at Anthony’s Woodfire Grill in Everett. Pours a dark amber color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is full of malts, caramel mostly with hoppy undertones. Flavor is pretty mild and mostly sweet rather than hoppy. I was expecting this to be more of a hoppy beer being a harvest ale but it wasn’t the guess. However it is a pretty good beer nonetheless.

Very dark in color, strong hoppy aroma, very fierce taste. This is a zinger of an amber. Very full tasting and hoppilicious.

Released....again! On tap at the brewery. Pours a very murky reddish rye color. Sweet malt aroma with hints of earth and citrus hops. A slightly "dirty" taste, some caramel and toffee as well. Pretty full body and no real after taste. Drinkable......

On tap at the Parkway Tavern in Tacoma. Dark bronze pint with a tight foam head. Nose and first sip made me think... mmm, Deschutes Jubel. But, getting further into the glass, the lighter body and maple sugar overtones became apparent. This makes a fine fall beer.

Dark amber color, with a malty and hoppy aroma and a taste to back it up. The hops however, do overpower the flavor (woohoo). Will re-rate later though due to being sick when I drank it.
