Cincinnati-based Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. will introduce its latest brand extension - Moerlein Over-the-Rhine Ale - on April 25, 2007. Moerlein OTR Ale was initially going to be called Moerlein Pale Ale, but Hardman said he decided to name it OTR Ale instead, in part as a tribute to the many people who are working to revitalize the long-neglected community just north of Cincinnati’s central business district. The beer is of the type that early brewers in Over-the-Rhine would have made in the era before modern refrigeration, he said. The recipe includes plenty of hops, which acted as a preservative, and lots of malt to balance the bitterness of the hops.

Like...roasty apples on the nose, I guess. This is a bizarre brew. Same in the flavor. Interesting, but aight. Really not sure what to make of it, but it’s not offensive and is better than the majority of mild pale ales.

Palidor19 (3168) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Its good, nice amount of malts which gives off a full presence done caramel, and the hops are not potent yet enough to satisfy a hop head.

The aroma is malt and hoppy just as advertised. There are caramel notes as well as citrus hops. The appearance is amber with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s about average but there is nothing special about it.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2008
12oz bottle. Dark amber color with minimal head and lacing. Fantastic malt aroma and flavor with nice hints of caramel and toffee. A great beer that’s named after a long-neglected, historic section of Cincinnati.

Capa (2768) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2008
A nice amber color with a quick off-white head. Aroma is of soft citrus and herbal hops, with light caramel. Hops are stronger in the flavor witht he pine being the big player. Also comes with a nutty, molasses malt background. Finishes with a nice, refreshing bitterness. I’m very impressed with the quality of this APA.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Deep dark copper pour, gentle off white soft head that sticks around. Sweet aroma with hints of toffee and pine. Flavor is very bold with some nuttiness, citrus, a hint of chocolate, some toffee and a back end of brown sugar. Mouthfeel is crisp and tangy. Rather impressed by this one and enjoyed very much.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2008
12 Oz Bottle. Poured A reddish orange with small white head. Aroma was roasted malts, strong in hops, pine and brown sugar. Which, all come out in the flavor, but it seemed a little watered down. The finish was a little bitter. A great everyday beer.
