3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark amber \
orange color. Tall off-white foamy
head. Aroma of grains, mostly spicy
rye and wheat malt. Flavor of fresh
grains, mostly spicy rye, some smooth
oats, sweet barley, and fruity wheat.
Finishes with an earthy hop character
that loans out some flavor as well as
bitterness. Very enjoyable. If you were
able to capture the exact flavors, it
tastes like an American Autumn
season. Finishes with flavors of Fall
leaves and some tropical fruit esters.
Overall, bold maltiness. Creamy
texture. Sharp grain backbone,
balanced hop bitterness. Love the
grains in the Harvest Ale. Happy

Citrus aroma. Sweet citrus up front with a long lingering orange flavor in the finish. Ok, but I expected better. Maybe I just have too high standards for this brewery. Good, but not exceptional

On tap at Craftsman Table and Tap - Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is pretty dry and yeasty, with some light tropical fruit notes and a touch of coriander. Taste is pretty much the same--dry, pale malt, dusty yeast, a bit of oak, and grassy hops, coriander, and light fruitiness. Not astringent, which is nice, and not overly spicy. Pretty jacked up carbonation fluffs up the thinnish body, but it distracts a bit from the beer. Pretty solid.

Amazing amber, very happy when I tried this, or is it a pale ale? The world may never know. Thank you Zeitgeist, thank you America.
