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.

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.

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.

Reimer96 (1226) - 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.

BreWedge (316) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
On tap @ Hintonburg Public House. Pours a clear amber with a thick beige head. Aromas are grass and citrus. Taste is bright citrus fruit (pineapple?) and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is creamy with mid-range carbonation. What stands out is the lack of a long astringent finish that is typical of these uber-hoppy styles. The bitterness is cumulative however. Nice beer!

It pours amber with sienna highlights; the head is light beige and marshmallow-like. The aroma has notes of: pine resin, grapefruit, toasted biscuit, and treacle. The taste is medium dry and slightly astringent that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit, caramel, lavender, and slight toasted grain. The palate is medium-light bodied, medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, it’s fairly interesting, however not enough to raise both eyebrows.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2012
In short: A lame IPA with overripe fruits
How: Bottle 750ml flip-top, 2011 batch, consumed relatively fresh 1.5 month after purchase
The look: Almost clear dark amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is not very hoppy showing light notes of wet grass, ripe citrus fruits over a barley candy. Taste has too much overripe red fruits and overripe citrus fruits, even some ripe bananas, some barley candy, wet dishcloth, dank hops, hops resin. Juicy bitterness with a rotten fruits flavor. This was a pretty lame beer. I was told this is was a boring beer, but do you know why I bought this bottle anyway? Seriously I’m asking. Please tell me because I have no idea why.

On tap at at Smokeless Joe in Toronto. Dark amber pour. Aroma of caramel, grass and citrus. Pretty smooh, medium body. Flavour is a little bit nutty and sweet. Straw and caramel. Finishes clean with a hint of lemon. Warms up nicely, got better as I went on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
