COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Muskoka Harvest Ale was our brewery’s pioneering venture into seasonal beers. Now in it’s fourth year, our Harvest Ale symbolizes the end of the growing season and the process of gathering mature crops from the fields Dry hopped and brewed using the finest ingredients we can find, this ale has a subtle grassy character reminiscent of the freshly cut harvest. It’s our way of celebrating another prosperous growing season. And we’re proud to share it with you.

750mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours clear copper colour. Aroma is beautiful - citrusy C-hops. Taste is very hoppy - grassy and citrusy. Medium bitterness hits you up front, with little bitterness in the aftertaste. Another nice seasonal brew from a great brewery.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
Pour copper orange with off white head good lace. Aroma harvest like aroma, cereal grain, bitter hops, oats,sweet malt. Taste cereal grain, quite malty, bitter hops, slight floral/floral, light caramel. MF medium sticky body fine carb. Solid session brew tasty big malt profile good but way to expensive.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle. Copper with thin white head and lacing. Malt and hop scent. Nicely hopped but more ESB than APA. Woodiness and caramel. Gentle sweetness and a bit of hop kick in the finish.

750ml bottle from LCBO. Hazy dark amber with an off white head, drank while camping and had a lot of fun shining flashlights and looking at embers through it :) Light hops and malts, some spice but plain. High carbonation, average body, highly bitter and dry, quite tasty - pleasantly tasty.

cfrancis (2153) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2011
This is one of the better harvest ales that I’ve ever had. Pours a deep copper with a big frothy top. Aroma is a great mixture of earthy malt and grassy hops. Taste is deep, rich malt character with grassy, earthy hops that taste green. Rich mild bitterness that grows on your palate. I need more than a bottle more.

September 26, 2011; 6.4% abv, 750mL swingtop bottle, BBD: none [guy at the counter said 6 months], refrigerated, mug Strong floral aromas with sweet malt, grapefruit, pine and spice. Pours a deep strawberry copper with a thick and creamy tan head. Head is pillowy and the beer laces well. No visible carbonation. Tastes of grapefruit rind, pine and floral with sweet malts. A light piney resin bitterness which lingers long. Medium to thick bodied with almost no carbonation; just enough to tickle the back of my throat. The bitterness is refreshing but lingers after the finish for a bit too long. This is what an APA is about. Hoppy just the way I like it but with enough malt for taste..

Metalchopz (2119) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
Big brown bottle with swing-top at the LCBO. Pours a deep amber colour with a full creamy-foamy off-white head that has great retention and decent lacing. At first pour, a hay smell is what comes out of this, but after breathing a bit, the hop comes out. Nicely balanced mouthfeel between wet and dry. The hop also shows up more and more as you sip it. Well-mixed with the caramel malt base. Quite easy to drink and pretty nice overall... just a tad expensive for a 6.4% brew (as that is the price for higher alcohol content beers in the same format - and this one, not being an import). A great English Pale Ale (being less bitter than APA).

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
750m bottle, 6.4% a/v Pours rich copper red/mahogony brown combo with a nice off white head. Gorgeous looking beer! The aroma is spectacular as well, spicy/grapefruit hops and a nice caramel malt background mix together very well. The taste is also spicy and citrusy, very hoppy but the malt backs it up. Not what I would expect from a "harvest ale" but still a very impressive beer. The mouthfeel is full and long lasting, and I will definitely be getting this one again soon!

rwgould (328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
Apperance: Transparent brown-orange, frothy beige head, high carbonation. Aroma: Very sprucey/grassy. Hints of soy sauce, herbs, hay and cereal. Palate: medium-bodied, very dry, even drier finish. Taste: fairly sweet, not very bitter. Not bad.
