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.

27 oct 07, on tap @ Old Harbor Brewery in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Clear, deep amber color. White foamy head. Sweet aroma, hop florals, a little citrus, and hints of roses. Fizzy character. Huge hop florals for a Pale Ale...Its more of a WestCoast Style than an English PubStyle Pale Ale. Bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.

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.

Draft @ brewpub. Copper with nice lacing. Fruity American hops. Soft palate and quaffable. Nice balanced beer. Not overly hoppy, but very nice.

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

Sampled on draft at the brewpub in wonderful Old San Juan. The aroma was not its strongpoint, a mix of hop-scents, some wheat and yeast, and a bit of grain. A slight malt character, but not easily detected. The appearance was traditional, a gold-copper color with a decent, bubbly white head. The flavor was good, mostly bitter and sour; not a sweet beer. Might have been better if not for being slightly watered down. It had a good fizzyness on the palate, with a full mouthfeel, and slightly drying effect.

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.
