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.

This is the newer version of Old Harbor’s Pale Ale. A roubust flavor with a nice floral aroma, pours copper, good head retention, a little sweet on the nose, then a nice bitter tingling with a warm feeling in the stomach. This beer is brewed by the new Master Brewer at OHB, Wolfgang Lindell, a true German Master Brewer(since 2007 I think) and has nothing to do with older versions brewed at OHB.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is hops. malt, caramel, water. Flavor is malt, harsh bitter hops, water with a decent amount of hop bitterness in the finish. Decent Pale Ale. Super happy to find this here in what I thought was going to otherwise be a beer wasteland.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2009
Draught @ the brewpub in San Juan. They served a five sample. Average almost creamy like off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Light cloudy amber-golden color. Aroma of apricot, floral, dusty flower, grapefruit and mild caramel over the palate. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with light sweetness. Light dry and apricot bitter finish. Quite nice on a hot summer day in San Juan.

This was my second favorite in the sampler. Nice hop aroma after amber orange pour. Nothing outrageous, but nice sessionable brew.

cheap (4017) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
Sampled at the brewpub in Old San Juan. Light brownish almost like watered down iced tea and it is a bit hazey. Creamy thin head that hangs. Has IPA hints in the aroma. Some mild pine as well. Certainly an ale with its annoying hopped prudish flavors. Not quite as high on the IPA flavor scale but it does approach that level. Ropey savory and dull pale ale finish with a medium lingering medicinal bite.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 3, 2008
On tap at the San Juan location. Dark amber pour with a hint of haze. Thin white layer of head covers the brew for the entire length of the beer. Pretty floral in the mouth at first but settles very smooth. Not astringent at all.
