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.

HonkeyBra (3422) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Dark, reddish orange pour with a thick, pillowy offwhite head. Aroma has midly sweet bread notes with a touch of rye grain. Some honey, some citrus and pine hops. I also get touches of melon and pineapple. There is a decided dry-fruit presence as well as bit of dark breads. Flavor is mildly sweet and nutty, nice fruit and sweet malt notes. RIch dark rye spiciness comes out towards the middle. It has a smooth, velvety body and creamy texture. Nice beer, really.

Bottle; Pour is clear gold with fine bubbled off white head in this glass - It retains well , with some sticky lacing. The nose is caramel, grain, and spices - I’m pretty impressed right away - More breads, spices, sweetness, and grains are present - i can sense the wheat in the center, and the rye near the finish - and some prickly carbonation here.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2012
The Half Pint, NY tap ($7): Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, with caramel and rye. Taste is certainly complex for an amber ale, which this should properly not be called in my opinion. Nice Belgian fruitiness holding things together with the amalgam of different malts and grains. Complex enough, but sessionable. I am like.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle in NYC. Pours faintly foggy gold with a fine, white cream. Nose has some yeast, toasty sugars and bready malts. Medium sweet flavor, toasted malts, light rye tang, some dry citrus, spices, yeast and wheat. Medium bodied with lively, creamy carbonation. Dries out nicely in the finish, some more yeasty bread, light toast, hints of citrus fruits, spices, toasty sugars. A very nice beer. Pretty dynamic.

Aroma of belgian yeast. Nice balance on the palate with phenolics from the yeast as well as good malty presence. Hint of rye spice.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma has some citrus & fruity esters, even hints of banana. Flavor has some obvious rye note and much the same as aroma with a light tang and hints of earth and toast. Mouthfeel is nice....light-medium, a bit soft/silky with fizzy carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

Jayb0 (1040) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
A very solid autumn seasonal. A harvest ale focused on a grain bill and not wet hops. Earthy, toasty and a bit estery. Refreshing and a little warming. A nice looking beer as well, with excellent fall color and attractive lacing.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy dark straw toward orangy with off-white head. Nose was grainy malt, hops, mild yeasty notes. Tasted complex, with an initial big complex malty grainy flavor, then the hops and mild funk hitting at mid-palate. This one is complex and enjoyable.

ttoadee (668) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Orange copper pour, huge fluffy white head. Smell of sweet roasted grain (NOT corn) and light Belgian yeast. Sweet, but not overly so. Creaminess that must be from oats is followed by a finish of spicy rye and hops. Good beer that does not shove itself down your throat.
