COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is a copper-colored, full-bodied ale. Brewed to showcase the magnificent flavour of American-grown hops, the OHB is balanced with American caramel malts and the subtly fruity flavour of our house ale yeast. Full of fresh hop aroma and flavour, but not bitterness, this ale is destined to be a classic. Old Harbor pairs well with red meat, hearty dishes and spicy foods.

Draft with Erica at the airport in San Juan. This was very nondescript and I don’t have a lot of notes aside from that it was okay and "kind of boozy." I did record my ratings for each category, though.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin partial covering. The nose is minimally hoppy with some husky malt and a little caramel. The flavor is a little lacking in the hops department as well. Not overly sweet, but rather husky and grainy with a bit of crystal malt on the finish. Minimal bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the worst of the bunch from Old Harbor, but not the best either.

Pours a light amber color with a minimal head. Flavors and aromas of citrus and caramel. Moderately bitter. Pretty light mouthfeel. An average APA but at least it’s good to see that Puerto Rico can make some decent beer.

Smells faintly of hops. Nothing special about the appearance, medium body, fair carbonation. Balanced, not bad.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Copper with nice lacing. Fruity American hops. Soft palate and quaffable. Nice balanced beer. Not overly hoppy, but very nice.

On Tap at brewery. Disappointing. Yeah, their description of no bitterness is not a good thing. Seems when they depart from the German styles the result is not as good. Overly sweet for the style, with an off sour aroma. NOt a terrible beer, but not particularly worth drinking.

Bottle. Floral, hoppy aroma. More bitter then thought but still tasty. Nice copper, amber color. Liked it.

Tercera del sampler de 5 en el brewery. Son cervezas bien a lo aleman/ europa. Talvez es la mejor de las 5
