Sampled as part of a sampler pack. Aroma was mild hops and sweet malts. Appearance was light brown with a thin lacey head. Mouthfeel was a little harsh and flavor lacked any kick of hops you expect from a harvest ale.

1998 vintage, thx to herbjones for this taste. Orange-amber color, smallish head, sweet malty aroma. Malt dominate; honey, toffee roasted just a bit. Real good if you’re in the malty mood.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 1, 2004
1998 vintage. Was expecting a hop monster ala Sierra Nevadas Harvest only to get a barleywine light. Deep orange color with a thin head. Sweet malty nose that carries through into the flavor along with some toffee notes.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
Bottle of the 2000 vintage. A dark golden brown with a slight haze and a tan head. A rich complex malt, slightly toasted, caramel, and honey aroma. The flavor is all malt and honey with interesting layers. A solid beer.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 26, 2002
2001 vintage. Medium brown-orange color, small head. Medium bodied ale. Complex malt flavor, somewhat Belgian is style. Intense hop flavor as well. Nice complex balance. Complex flavor combination, yet well finished/balanced taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is very smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Very interesting beer. Etched beer bottle.

Balanced, soft and small bubbled. Near headless. Scant aroma. Oily. Extended bitter. Blunt instead of punctuated flavors.
