2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 The aroma is very inviting with caramel, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of maple syrup. The appearance is dark amber with a medium head. The taste is bad with water, funk, and burnt coffee. The palate is thin. This beer is one that sucks you in thinking it’s going to taste great instead the taste is nothing like the aroma. Yikes!

Bottle on 12/12/2010. Clear dark amber body with a frothy tan head. Sweet toasty and caramel aroma. Sweet toasty and bready flavor with some caramel. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Disappointing offering from Long Trail. Just too thin on the palate and middling flavors.

half a good beer, the better half is a rich malty spicy with some hops, rather enjoyable unfortunately the other half is bud light.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pleasant enough as a low alcohol session beer. Low OG for low alcohol also leads to pretty average mouth feel. Nutty notes as befits a brown, some malt, some hops, but really not especially interesting. There is a new stone ballast point collaboration that works much better as a session beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour. The nose is quite light - softly malty with a fairly clean light sort of caramel. A little bit of soft earthy hoppiness but this is also quite malt accented. Bready with a kiss of toffee through the middle. It’s actually quite well-balanced though. Despite the malt flavour - it drinks a little bit thin.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much to report on the nose of this one - just slight resin and a touch of wet grass/hay (probably appropriate given the title). Mildly sweet at first with a slightly meaty and enduring finish in both taste and texture. Harvest is a good addition to the Long Trail sampler pack and won’t turn most people off, but don’t go out of your way to find it.

caramel, amber, clear, minimal head, very middle of the road flavor dominated by caramel, nice and refreshing, but I prefer the mighter Double Bag....

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pretty copper pour with a short beige head. Aroma is nutty and slightly spiced. Taste is soft spicy hops, nutty flavors, caramel, dried fruit and sweet malt. Body is s touch thin with a light-medium feel and a soft, bubbly carbonation. At times this felt cask conditioned body-wise. Ends with more nuttiness, light spicy hops, caramel, light earthy flavors and sweet malt.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark roasted malt aroma, not strong. Clear brown, medium yellow head. Tart charcoal flavor, again, weak. Bark and coffee toward the end. Not real exciting, but ok.
