COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scythe & Sickle Harvest Ale is brewed with barley, wheat, oats and rye. Scythe and sickle is a seasonal brew that celebrates the richness of the grain harvest. Brewed with barley, wheat, oats and – in a nod to traditional upstate New York grains – rye, this fine ale is malty and creamy on the palate. The flavors of the grains and earth shine through. Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.

PorterPounder (5711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Jacksonville, Fl. - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy, medium copper with a sticky thick white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has an enticing sweetness to it with some light bubble gum notes, a touch of white grapes, some brown sugar. Flavor is full and bold with some licorice accents, a touch of molasses, some caramel, a hint of bubble gum and a touch of vanilla in the back end, thick rich mouthfeel. Would make a good winter warmer.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Draft @ Amesbury Ale House. Dark hazy amber color with 1/2 inch thick foam that laced well. Nose is mostly Belgian yeast with sugar. Wheat seems to mingle with the Belgian yeast and malt. The rye is subtle. Texture is creamy. Very well balanced. Incredibly easy to drink, my glass was emptied real quick.

Pours a hazy, light amber with quite a bit of head. Smells awesome. Like apples and caramel and cinnamon. Very carbonated. Sweet upfront with a subtle bitterness on the way down. Well balanced and very enjoyable. Will have many more.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Slightly funky belgiany nose with some lemon citrus. Thick persistent head and lacing. Dark burnt orange and cloudy. Tangy earthy malts and dried lemon rind and peppery spice...maybe grains of paradise or white pepper. Nice and complex autumn offering. Would be awesome with any kind of squash soup or a gingery Asian dish or even some grilled salmon.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a golden color with a white head. I get a lot of grain notes in the aroma, with a hint of yeast and some grass. The flavor is fairly dry with a lot of the husky grain notes. I also get some grass and earth from the hops as well as some spices and some yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Like a crisp fall day in a bottle. A golden, delicious beer with a creamy head. The earthy notes of the grains really shine but are well balanced with a mild hop flavor.
