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.

Nephilium (1311) - Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2007
The aroma is a standard lager aroma, slight hints of fruit in it. Pours a clear amber with a quickly fading white head. Nothing really special about this beer, just a decent drinkable ale.

Nice caramel malt aroma. Lighter amber color. Sweet malty flavor with enough hops to more than balance,

True amber color, clear. Pleasant one finger initial head that leaves some lace. Fairly typical American Pale Ale aroma: pale malt smells with a touch of floral hop, fairly indistinctive. In terms of flavor, this beer has more bite than some pale ales--more crisp than expected. The malt and hop are well-balanced but not very complicated. The aftertaste is mostly hop bitterness. Body is thin to moderate, while the carbonation is moderate to high. Bottom line, this is a drinkable beer that isn’t going to knock your socks off.

Not a bad beer. Similar to most others in its class. Big out in bean town. Happy new years

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Nice caramel malt aroma. Lighter amber color. Sweet malty flavor with enough hops to more than balance, more like a straight pale in that regard. Mid-weight body, a great starter beer for the Beer Hall.

annunz123 (846) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Orange, caramel, and lots of grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor starts bready and slightly sweet, then finishes with some lightly bitter, grassy hops. This is a seriously underrated beer, plenty tasty but also crowd-pleasing--a fine choice for a cookout or tailgate.

jmcgavin12 (465) - Madison, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Orange pour with minimal amber hued head. Very fruitful and flowered aroma. Not too strong of a body but balanced and overall quite refreshing

snoworsummer (1864) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft during brewery tour. Pours clear gold amber with thin, white head. Aroma and flavor are caramel and cereal malts, floral hops, light toast, and some light fruit.

edgallow (1863) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2013
12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, grains and citrus. Taste is sweet malts, grass and a hint of bitterness.

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