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.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Pours clear copper with a frothy off white head. The aroma is of caramel, sweet malt, and fresh, slightly funky hops. The taste is crisp citrus and spice up front, with a strong hop finish. Nice medium body and well balanced all around. RE-RATE 2013/09/22: On cask at the Wooly. Pours clear copper with a rocky, light tan head. The aroma is of caramel malt, fresh hops, clove and cinnamon, and light esters - perfect for fall. The lower carbonation and higher temp benefits this beer - I get more complex malt flavour, balancing out a firm but not extreme, American hop finish.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2012 750 mL Bottle. Pours a copper body with a nice white head that settles to a tenacious film leaving generous lace. Intense aroma of sweet malts, resiny hops and a hint of toffee. The flavor is definitely full bodied; intense with loads of sweet malt and crystal malt, intense resiny and peppery "grapefruit rind" hops tapering to a toffee finish. An excellent sipping beer that represents the time of year it’s suited for.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear orange brown with lots of white head that dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacing, also has some visible carbonation. Smell is really nice, lots of hops, citrus, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, everything a harvest ale should be. Palate is a bit oily with light body and not much carbonation on the tongue. Taste is pretty good, a bit sweet at first, with a bit of spice as a prelude to the nice roundness of the hops filling the palate. The aftertaste is a bit lacking however, and should be more bitter.

shaynsawchuk (481) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2012
750 mL bottle. Pours a very attractive copper brown, a fine white head with minimal lacing. Aromas of malt, pine and toffee sweetness. The flavour profile lines right up with the aromas, a wallop of toasty malt sweetness, caramel and butterscotch, followed by a good bite of bittering hops, citrus and lanolin notes with a smooth finish. Medium full on the palate with decent carbonation and a lingering finish. Drank this one a little warm by accident, and rather happy I did, really rounds it out nicely. A textbook APA, and another great offering from Muskoka breweries.

Reimer96 (1220) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Pours a hazy copper color with a strong Cascade hoppy smell that bring out some grassy and Piney notes. Lot’s of hop on the palate with a moderate mouth feel. Finishes with a bit of bitter hop that goes away quickly, can drink this all day long.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
Pours a dark amber colour with a big thick creamy head. The aroma starts strong alc. then a soapy fruit hop aroma. The flavour is caramel sweet and citrus with a light hoppy herb body is thick on the palate and a nice bitterness from the dry hopping.

Listigovers (306) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Great fresh hop aroma. Pours brown with a slight orange tinge and a thick lacing offwhite head. Very round and smooth mouthfeel, very boozy though. A little thin in the body as well. It’s pretty nice, with a lasting malt aftertaste despite being quite dry. I think it needs to be aged, and would consider buying it again for a warm autumn day, but it’s not my absolute favourite.

AlainG (1221) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Elle est orangée et limpide, coiffée d’une mousse dense et persistante, qui dessine une dentelle aux parois du verre.Elle sent le houblon, c’est très floral et il y a des arômes d’agrumes. Elle goûte le houblon, c’est résineux, alors qu’une bonne amertume se présente en bouche. C’est âcre sur les bords, ou encore savonneux. La description, ou encore le nom de la bière nous laissent croire que c’est une bière de type saison. Par contre, le style indiqué sur cette fiche, lui convient mieux. Ça porte à confusion...(391-091012)

samzim (205) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Beautiful amber colour. RIght off the bat, hit the fruity scent of fresh hops. Sweet passionfruit and caramel notes at the front, with a heavy, but not overpowering bitterness at the end.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Golden copper colored pour with light tan frothy head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste of caramel, citrus, orange peel and bitter hop finish. Perfect carbonation and nice smooth mouthfeel. Quality beer all round.
