COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Currently Thom’s Olde Ale is Harpoon Ale, our first beer.

The first in the Harpoon family of beers, our ale is a light amber in color, medium bodied, and well balanced. The slightly fruity aroma is from Harpoon’s special yeast.

Orange pour with minimal amber hued head. Very fruitful and flowered aroma. Not too strong of a body but balanced and overall quite refreshing

At the source. Tan body with light head. Aroma of citrus and yeast. Nice light flavor, but a little light for me

ads135 (3581) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Easy on the palate and sessionable. Not a mind-blowing beer, but a solid ale, nonetheless. Caramel sweetness, solid bread body. A bit of grass.

luttonm (3308) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Draft at Harpoon Tasting Room. Great to try the original, and it stands up to time. Pale Crystal, malt alt-amber sour. but much hops to balance that. A small bier, but very tasty in a limited, restrained Ale

AdamChandler (3744) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Light brown gold SRM of 9 Cinnamon. Malts. Sugar. Caramel. It’s very weak on the nose. Very wheaty. Grassy and bland. Whatever really. There’s some nuttiness like almonds on the finish 50/50 carb. Light body. Bitter roasted finish 40/100. Ugh
