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.

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
750ml 2013 bottle from the LCBO. Pours a semi-translucent, ruby/brown with an eggshell, two finger, frothy head. Slight sediment floating around. Aroma is large with notes of sweet dark fruits, yeast, citrus, and bread. Taste is very balanced. Starts out with a but of caramel and fruit then moves to more floral and citrus fruity hops then ends with a slightly spiced, hop bitter. Medium body and carbonation. A touch syrupy in the mouth with an effervescent carbonation. Overall good. Complex with a lot of flavours blended together. Would be interested to try it again next year.

CapFlu (4516) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Yellowish head atop a mahogany body. Nose of orange and ... garlic? Good resiny pine flavour but it’s odd, there is little "fresh" about this Harvest Ale. A very nice beer.

750ml bottle from the LCBO.2013 vintage. Pours a dark hazy amber with a pillowy beige head that leaves some good lace. Nose is grass and citrus with an earthy note. Nice sweet caramel malt balance with a touch of spice at the front extending to a long bitter finish. Medium creamy mouth with average carbonation. Very nice.

Nice, big beer from Muskoka. Crisp bitterness followed by a mellowed malty flavour. Nice touch of the hops in the finish. Great feel on the palate. Nice offering from Muskoka (though I like some of their other items more).

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a thinly veiled dark amber-copper with a resilient, creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, grass, spices, vegetable oils. Flavor is caramel, pine resin, earthy, sandy. Finish is very herbal, lots of hops. Bitterness is high. Some earth, and a touch of citrus, mostly lemon. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good, but too much caramel at the forefront.
