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.

(english pint) Pretty average. Not much of a head, barely covered surface. Not a very strong aroma, but not bad. The flavor actually improves as you let it sit (for about 10 minutes) and it was getting better by the sip. Decent, but I donít know that I would buy another six pack. Maybe a pint at a bar.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Clear burnt orange with a thin off white head. Sweet toasty malt aroma with a hint of hops and oxidation. Sweet and malty with some bubblegum flavors, noticable alcohol and a slightly harsh bitter finish.

Pours a two finger cream head, fades quickly and leaves some lace. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nice clear amber color. Nose is slightly malty/nutty. Starts with a light mellow sweetness and finishes smooth. Thinking this would be an octoberfest but it isnít - hard to classify. $1.00 for a 12oz bottle from Julioís Liquors Westborough, Ma.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2009 Just a tad hop bite, wheat malts, just refreshing. A decent rounded out seasonal.

A middle of the road beer. No outstanding characteristics. I would not buy this again.

Bottle. Orange copper color with a small cream colored head. Aromas of toasted malt and earthy hops. Iím not getting much of the citrus thing many have noted. Initial flavors of toasted sweet malt countered by a bracing bitterness. Moderate carbonation and a light mouthfeel. Fairly dry bitter finish, very similar to the ESB. I didnít notice the alcohol so much- until I drank a couple. A good session beer if your session is a get fíd up session.

Summits Wayside Tavern, Sandy Springs, Ga (Atlanta) - on tap. Pours a medium orange with an everprescent sticky white head. Faint caramel in the aroma with a back end of citrusy hoppiness. Flavor has a similar profile with some underlying west coast hoppiness as a reminder of where it s from. Detect a bit of homebrew funkiness near the finish with some candied sugar notes and some cotton candy. Clean mouthfeel, sits well. Overall, not bad at all.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Clear, coppery/amber-y color, big, puffy head. An attractive enough ale. Malty, nutty nose. But, barely...overall, hollow, everything played very lightly, if at all... Taste is coppery, malty, soft and fresh on the palate. Light body, slight finish...good mouthfeel. But too bland for my tastes, though I can feel what theyíre searching for here: a session ale, thatís deeper and darker than spring or summer seasonal ales. Not bad at all, but nothing to get excited about.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Rerate. Good hoppy profile. Some grape flavor detected. Nice balance. Not as good as I rated it the first time. Clear amber color. Rich caramel flavor. One of the best in its style. Very good! Original rating = 4
