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.

10/9/13 Pours a nice copper/caramel color with a thick head. Beautiful lacing that lasts throughout the drink. Not as hop forward: I taste more of the wheat and rye. Has a delicious creamy feel with a nice dry finish. A very drinkable, solid seasonal brew.

Beerman6686 (4167) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
This poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of rye, yeast, and dark fruits. Flavor was similar, slightly rustic, but yeast driven and a bit too sweet.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Tap at Alchemy. Unfiltered orange-brown body, creamy steady off-white head. Kind of an ingredient overload. Dry, mineral mouthfeel. Unique certainly, has some depth, at least as far as the grain bill. A wacky mix, almost comes off Sorghum-like. Drinkable, but not a World Class venture. Some marmalade tastes. Grows on you. Multi-grain Marzen. OK, kind of awkward.

Changed (343) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2013
12oz bottle from FLBC. Pours hazy copperish orange. Fluffy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is malt, spice, banana, yeasty esters I guess. Flavor is much the same, but fairly dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium-high. Easy to drink, perfect for an October night in upstate New York.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. This poured coppery and mostly clear. Yeast and malts were prominent but hops were somewhat scarce. Crispness with spices and yeast. Nice grain notes. A pleasant beer.
