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.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Brown pour. Maltbomb aroma. Light hops are hidden by caramel and fruity malts. Flavor is caramel, fruit, ALL malt all the time.

hopscotch (10265) - 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!

Dogbrick (9998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle from Party Source. The bottle had some weird crustys around the cap after I removed it so that is not a good sign. The beer pours a slightly luminous orange-amber color with absolutely no head or lacing. Also not a good sign. Light malt and pine in the nose. Medium-bodied and fruity with some toasted malt and piney hops flavor, however the flavors are buried by tartness. The finish is tart fruit with a touch of sweet malt. I have to conclude I got a bad bottle, but will need to try again to be sure.

shrubber85 (9452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle. Very fruity aroma - apricot and cherry malt aroma. Reddish orange color with small head. Apricot and orange malt flavor with light hops finish. Extremely fruity especially for the style - more like a cream ale than the typical APA.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2011
12oz bottle. Clear darker orange color, minimal off-white head leaving spots of lace. Odd malty-fruit aroma, something specific in the nose I can’t quite put my finger on (like a metallic fruit taste). Some caramel malt. Smooth, crisp, and drinkable. Kind of bitter-sweet in a dark way. Unique, but not in an entirely awesome way.
