freeofthoughts (635) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Tap pours an amber copper with eggshell frothy foam. Earthy aroma kinda light, . The flavor starts nice and rich with the sweet toffee from the grains working well with the herbal fruity hops. Drying earthy green grass, light orange citrus and touch of herb last in the finish with a toasted bread grainy feel. Pretty enjoyable and full of flavor for under 6%.

Decent pale ale. Light and crisp hop bitterness. Decent malt backbone, with a creamy mouthfeel. Nothing crazy, but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Sample at 1808 American Bistro. Pours a dark orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

b3shine (4465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with thin off-white head. Smells of dough, grain, and pale malt with very mild hop notes. Average on the palate. An underhopped, underwhelming example of the style.

rangerred (866) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Had on tap in a pint glass. Pours a clear medium amber with not much in the way of a head or lacing. Aroma is quite fruity with some pine notes thrown in. There is a bit of candy sweetness up front in the flavor with more citrus in there behind. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and finish. Overall, a pretty good beer but it comes up a bit short when compared to some other harvest ales out there. Not really one to seek out.

It poured a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma was floral and fairly one dimensional. The taste was similar with a medium bitter finish and a small hoppy aftertaste. Not sure this is what I expected.
