COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the fall days grow shorter, beer drinkers naturally start their migration toward more robust, full-bodied brews. Late Harvest is an easy-drinking, yet flavorful brew that features a deep chestnut color and unique, roasted malt aroma and flavor. Late Harvestís rich flavor is the result of using four different malts, yet the robust profile remains balanced and sophisticated, thanks to our two distinctive hop additions. Late Harvest pairs nicely with grilled burgers or any tailgate cuisine. Available August through October.

to me this one tastes leafy along with an Autumn like sweetish malt flavor and a hint of hop. Yes it did finish warm and a bit chalky actually i probably sensed the smoky essence as described. Kind of off balance but interesting in that regard and what one has learned to look for in this catagory. Bit of eccentric dried fruits lends class and body. it has its place and would suit certain old fashion, hearty dishes well. For that matter it would probably cook well.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Fairfax, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium fizzy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, plum-like fruit notes and a faintly hoppy finish. The taste is toasted malts, bitter hops, a faint bit of chocolate and a caramel finish. Medium bodied. Drinkable. Decent.

mbgrayson (505) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Pours an orangish color, with a light tan head. Malts and brown sugar flavor, with a little bit of hops added too. I actually like it just fine. Thumbs up.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2010
On tap. Pours a clear dark copper body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that had decent retention. Nicely toasty and slightly sweet with some caramel on the nose. The flavor is fairly simple, but decent. On the sweeter side with a toasted malt base, just a light hopping on the finish. Medium bodied, a little sticky, with fizzy carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

Bottle. Wasnít crazy about this one. Sweet up front with a very dry finish. Not much stood out in the flavor. Overall disappointing.

12 ounce bottle. Picked this one up because it was on sale and I was in the mood for an autumn seasonal. Poured into a basic tumbler glass. The first thing I notice with this beer is the clarity, as itís crystal clear. Nice, full, 2 inch head thatís well constructed. Aroma is best described as subdued. Less polite, you could say that it just doesnít seem like there is anything there. Faint malts, maybe, if you stretch for it. Happily it tastes better than it smells, with a crisp malt bite and some nice sweetness in the finish. Flavor is pretty good, actually. It hits you with a rush of brown sugar up front, followed by dried apricots and peaches in the finish. This one doesnít have a lot of aspiprations. Itís meant to be an easy drinking autumn seasonal, and in that regard itís quite successful.

mmmbeer (1213) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent copper with maroon undertone, medium carbonation, 5mm white head quickly bubbled away to a white ring around the glass, light lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, and wheat. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is there but water comes rushing in, middle has a light hop feel to if, finish is sweet- but fades quickly. It was on sale, itíll work.
