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 (1696) - Cleveland, 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.

Pours a gold from a bottle, white head with some lacing. Fruity aroma, kind of a nondescript melon apple maybe? Similar flavor, some bitterness, rather big mouthfeel. Okay beer.

CousinBrenden (131) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Amber color, clove malt aroma real lean. Not too plalatable for drinking more than one. A lighter berr ok but too cloying for a middle road brew

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2014
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.
