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.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle pours a hazy dark amber, almost copper, body with a creamy beige head that lays down some patchy lace on the glass. Aroma is very malty, with waves of caramel and toffee. Ripe pears and grapefruit add fruity notes and there is a hint of pine. Taste has a dominant caramel sweetness but the Cascades hops contribute some grapefruit and pine while the Fuggles add an earthiness. Interesting hop bill, but this one is just a little overboard on the malt sweetness.

Pours a hazy dark orange brown with a small white head. The aroma is of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Flavor is sweet with floral hop bitterness and a hint of vanilla. Pretty tasty. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Decent and satisfying.

12 oz bottle. Not a bad beer, but zero to get excited about. A malty, bitter, low hopped pale. A craft drinkers "lite beer"’ if that.

12oz bottle from somewhere in Cincy. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Aromas of a shit load of sweet caramel malts with some hops and citrus mixed in. Flavors of candied sugar, caramel, mild hops, and a ton of sweet malt. Not what I really prefer in an APA but overall I would say it works some how. Couldn’t drink it all night, but not a bad beer.

Very surprised by this. Had a good malt character, rather thick. The hops weren’t as noticeable as the roasted malt character. Medium finish. Also had some cola-like flavor.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Pretty dark copper/ruby pour with a nice light beige head. Malty aroma, caramel with a hint of molasses and a little hop bite, certainly an unique aroma for an APA . The flavor doesn’t quite match up with the aroma, the hops are a little less noticeable and the malts have a little wet cardboard aftertaste that detracts from the otherwise solid taste. Medium body, I think this beer was the first Moerlein that I had and it is a solid APA.

Brown pour. Maltbomb aroma. Light hops are hidden by caramel and fruity malts. Flavor is caramel, fruit, ALL malt all the time.

Pours a brown body with a thin white head. Dry, bitter hoppy flavor. No great standout flavors.

mattmc1973 (479) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2010
On draft at the Great American Ballpark. Dark brown with off-white head, at least looks like much more of a brown ale than a pale ale. Aroma of toasted caramel malt. Taste is roasty/toasty and sweet caramel, with very mild hop bitterness. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel...not bad!

Bottle from a trade with phaleslu. Pours clear copper color with light khaki head. Aroma of floral hops and caramel. Sweet caramel flavor with mild bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Peter.
