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.

Draught at Canoe Restaurant, Toronto
Dark amber color with creamy head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, maybe some fudge. Very good toffee flavor, with smooth mouthfeel, and correct bitterness; the hop is quite resiny; long final. Balanced and bold. Very good.

Lubiere (9883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
A dark reddish amber ale with a thick receeding moka head. In aroma, caramel malts, pinhey c-hops, quite nice and pleasant. In mouth, loads of caramel malts, with beautiful floral c-hops, grapefruit, nutty notes, a perfect harvest ale (in comparison to other recently tasted). Keep up the good work guys! Tasted Nov. 2010.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2011
On Tap at Beer Bistro, Toronto 14/11/2010 Malty aroma. Amber red coloured hoppy a little rich on the palate and fruity with a hint of dryness in a bitter grainy rye malt finish.

daknole (9053) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Rich amber pour, frothy white head. Aroma is loaded with caramel, stone fruit, and hop pellets. Flavor is lighter than the aroma, hops, caramel malt. Beer is like a blend of a barleywine and pale ale. Interesting.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Volo Cask Days 2009. A good bitterness from cascade hops, this is more of an American pale, with bold taste, a good bitterness, though not very balanced. Reddish with a soapy head. Easy drinking, average mouthfeel. Fresh hop taste to it. Neutral aroma. Zythos and falconer Flight made it a very good pale in 2012.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with a nice fresh hoppiness. Fairly assertive bitterness with a nice lingering hoppiness. Fresh malt and a bit of toasted malt character as well. Quite a nice surprise.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
2009-10-31. Dark orange amber body with a small off-white head. 3+ Mild aroma, light citrus, oranges, muted hop resin. 6+ Flavour is similar with sweet oranges and a touch of leafy resin, muted kiss of pith, very mild caramel malt underneath. Average plus palate is flat. Less hop oomph than expected, but pleasant and quaffable, albeit a touch mild. Decent. Cask at Volo Cask Days 2009
