Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with grassy notes of hops, and so is the flavor.

Enjoyed at the Hedge House in Portland, Oregon--Poured a hazy amber-copper with a small thick off-shite dome. Hoppy and sweet simultaneously. Finished astringent, dry and quite bitter. A unique beer for the autumn season.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 Draught pint at Redbones on 11/15/06. Listed as "Harvestman Alt" but I’m betting there’s a good chance that that was just a misinterpretation of "Harvest moon Ale". Regardless, I’m not creating a new entry.
Heavily cloudy amber-copper colored body has an off-white head that is dense, moderately well-retained and laces the glass in rings. Plentiful carbonation rises.
Hoppy, spicy nose is supremely dry, with perfume, light soap and a crunchy/earthy note from the malt. Extremely, extremely attenuated, you can tell from the nose, lending no sweetness, or perhaps, just a pinch of light toffee. Seems like some rye or other spicy/nutty grain was used, though that could very well be the hops. Medium strength of aroma, but the yeast presence in their beers always dulls it.
Hops range from lightly citric, to spicy, to perfume-like and slightly floral. They collect all over the palate, lightly juicy, but with a ton of bitterness that goes overboard (for me anyways). Some soapiness on the finish, with astringent, slick, toasted malt that is all but 100% attenuated. Maybe a bit of toffee and pale malt sugar slips in, but it’s fleeting. Heavily bitter finish, very fatiguing. The highly yeasted texture is somewhat of a comfort, giving that slick, yet substantial feel. But it’s hollow, there just isnt any malt definition and the hops are 95% bitterness.

[Tastival 2006 SNOB Event – Tap] A nice fresh hopped brew. This had a interesting flavor as this was trying to be a harvest beer with over the top Hops added. Crystal hops where used and this had a flavor of an IPA meets a Oktoberfest type beer. A great try and a great cool weather beer. Good Job and nice mixing of styles.
