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.

Afantastic american pale ale. Being in Cincinnati I know the history of OTR, and the hopiness is very reflective of the bitter attitude that is prevalent Over the Rhine

One word...malt malt malt...with good hops. I went to the first keg tapping at Findley Market and was immediately impressed even though the beer wasn’t served at the optimum temperature. Great caramel flavor intensifies at the end with a clean finish. I bought a couple six-packs and then went the 1/6 barrel route. I am now close to purchasing my thrid sixth barrel since my neighbors appear to like this beer as much as I do. By far, the best Christian Morlein beer to date.

Simply a great beer.
A rocky head dissolves quickly. Fruity aroma. Tasty.

From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Light cloudy tan, with a weak aroma. Weak tasting beer with a strong aftertaste. It?s not likely to make the rotation.
