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.

LBarouf (114) - Ontario, - NOV 17, 2012
750ml bottle Big, long lasting frothy head, smells of citrus, a little caramely. Beautiful amber colour. Citrusy, bitter hops on impact, a bit creamy and bubbly, bitter lingers on back of tongue. A hoppy ale for certain. Fresh and delicious.

Corked and caged wine bottle. That might not be necessary. This beer just screams "dry hopped harvest APA!", which is what it is, and those are pretty good, so luckily things worked out tasting good, albeit a bit on the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark copper in color with a whitish head. Bit of garden earthyness, some grassyness and later on even some citrus with little bit of spicy notes as well in aroma. Taste has got some grassyness and orange peel notes in it. Bit of grapefruit bitterness mixed with sweeter notes in the end.

MrHangover (2541) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with a bubbly off white head on top. Aroma has veggies, grass, fresh hops and vegetation. Hops have faded in the background. Flavor is medium bitter and fairly uninteresting. Decent drinkability, but nothing new under the sun here.

gregorymconway (91) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Amber body with thick frothy off-white head. Aromas of pine, fresh cut grass, earthy notes. Some caramel is present as well. Incredibly well integrated alcohol. The finish is exceptionally smooth and this beer is completely balanced.

BrewGoblin (378) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Sunuvagun! Cottage country Ontar-i-ar-i-o brewing some damn tasties. Huge juicy, floral hops barrel you with a velvety smooth assault, backed solidly by caramel malts, some light grassy and hay notes as well. It lives up to its description and earns its cork. There is even some subtle but present tastes of fresh earth and fallen leaves. Gorgeous colour of reddish gold, off white lacing from the lovely head the whole way down. The perfect balance of oily, chewy textures in a medium bodied, mid carbed ale. Damn Muskoka. Damn.

Bottle. Pours deep amber, very clear, big off white head with moderate retention. Aroma of strong caramel, bread, slight hoppy pine and citrus. Flavor mostly caramel to taste, Stine resinous bittering on the finish.

HopsandBolts (86) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Appearance: Pours coppery brown colour with about a finger of white head. Aroma: Hops, caramel Flavours: Hops, biscuit, cloves and baking spices, caramel Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated Overall: A nice beer but not as balanced as in previous years. This year’s version trends towards the hoppy side of things, not that there is anything wrong with that. I just remember previous versions having a really nice malty component that seems lacking from this version.
