COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Great caramel, citrus aroma. Taste is Slightly bock-like but with a twinge of hop bitterness. Finish is slightly thin. Not that complex, but decent.

12oz bottle, thanks to xnoxhatex giving this to me. pours amber with beige head. nose has some sweet malt notes. flavor has mostly toasted malts with some caramel. where’s the hops? i guess fresher bottles are claiming some more hop notes but this seems like it was never that hoppy. kinda boring and too sweet. some big hop notes would do this beer wonders.

Pours reddish amber with a fully receding light-tan head. Aroma of pine, citric, cascades. Taste is lightly resinous, pine, toffee, and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly resinous with lively carbonation. This was a good beer, but is this really worth of the 90 percentile?

A malty smoothness with nice hops character. Not quite as bitter as one might expect from a pale ale but has really nice medium-body.

Headbanger (3663) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2007
12oz bottle-An amber body with a huge off white head and an aroma of hops and malt. Taste of malt follwed by hops then malt on the back end. Almost too malty for a Pale but not a bad tasting beer.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean amber hue with a fading frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and toffee bready malts, noble aromatic hops, hint of pear and apple esters and a touch of butterscotch. The taste is a combination of twangy acidity, sweet malt, and mineral water. The mouth feel is lively and aggressive with a metallic finish. Overall it is quaffable but the diacetyl drops it a couple spots.

H-O-P-S Simply a great beer. "quaffable" A rocky head dissolves quickly. Fruity aroma. Tasty.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2007
This pours a bright copper body with a creamy eggshell head that does some intricate lacing. The aroma has caramel at its base and is covered with grapefruit, pine, and orange blossoms. The flavor begins with a even balance between malty sweetness and hop bitterness, but then takes a tip towards the latter, bringing it close to IPA country. It finishes on a sweet and bitter note, the hops flavors lasting longer. A dandy APA.

Bottle in the mystery swap from cewldre. Thanks! Pours a dark orange amber with a small ring of white lace that fades. Nose is very potent with simple sugar, caramel, some dark fruits, vanilla. Flavor starts very heavy on the malts, but finishes with a citrusy hop bitterness that I didnt pick too much up of in the nose. Pretty nice carbonation and moderate to thick mouthfeel (especially for the style) . Alcohol well hidden and quite drinkable. Better than expected.
