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.

The aroma is malt and hoppy just as advertised. There are caramel notes as well as citrus hops. The appearance is amber with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s about average but there is nothing special about it.

I think I got a bottle from a bad batch, or perhaps old? Sour nose, Sour body on otherwise what might be a nice pale ale. Very hoppy, but sour.

1/13/10. 12oz bottle. Musty oxidized caramel old ale aroma with a sweet caramel flavor that reminds me more of an old ale or barleywine. If this is a pale ale, it must be very old.

Does not age well! Murky copper color with little head. Aroma is mostly malt. Very lacking in hops. Taste is similar. It has not gone bad but has lost its zip.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Hazy dark orange/amber color. Two fingers of half frothy/half creamy head with good retention, but minimal lacing. 2.5 S: Big hit of buttery pungent breadiness. Caramel malts with some graininess. Slight citrusy twang from the hops. 2.5 T: Buttery breadiness and some off flavors that I can’t put my finger on. The taste is reminiscent of a poorly executed homebrew. Pine and orange hop flavor. 4.0 M: Medium fuller body. Good carbonation, creamy. 2.5 D: Not a big fan of breadiness in an APA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-22-2009 00:31:18

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber with a fluffy head. The nose is all caramel and bananas. Hops are severely lacking in the nose. Strong notes of caramel in the taste as well, more of the banana and a light metallic note. Sweet and just not good, unfortunately.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Pours amber with an off white head. Smells of rotting vegetables, some caramel, some earthy hints. Tastes earthy with some peas and herbal spicy hints on the finish.

arsehole77 (3) - Indiana, USA - FEB 27, 2012 does not count
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.
