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.

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?

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2007
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 (3555) - 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 (6502) - 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.

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.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2007
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.

hopscotch (10198) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear, dark amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Nose of toasted caramel malt and earthy and citrusy hops. Sweet, malty, caramel and biscuit flavors up front; shadowed by moderate earthy, mineral hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and intermediate carbonation. Bitter-sweet, caramel finish. Kudos to xnoxhatex for floating this bottle my way!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Bottle thanks to cewldre: Pours a transparent bright amber copper with a thin wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh earthy noble and citrusy American hops along with a touch of toasted malt. Starts with a nice mild caramel sweetness and earthy grapefruity bittering hop balance toward a crisp, clean bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and a good APA.
