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 Harvest’s 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.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle. Pale amber appearance with a little head. Aroma is some spicy pine hops and caramel malts. Flavor is caramel, fairly rich roast, with a little hop bitter. Not bad.

Appearance: medium clear amber/orange. Aroma: apricots and maybe peaches, some light caramel malts and some woody hops. Taste: a slight malty flavor, then some medium-bitter hops. Finish: bitter, slightly floral, slightly fruity, and mild. Notes: unremarkable seasonal.

I thought this one stunk pretty bad. No discernible palate or specific flavor. It just seemed kind of ambiguous and not really having a flavor. Threw some ingredients in a bottle and it came out brown, so they called it autumn ale...but it’s lame.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Light amber, good head. Light fruit aroma - like peaches - mixed with hops. Taste has a light fruit taste too, but with a nice balance of bitterness. Finish is bitter and that fruit feel is still there.

On tap at Eb and Floes, Bald Head Island, copper very slightly cloudy with a fairly big taste, sweet but not too much, brown sugar and cookies.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle at a friend’s cookout. Pours light coppery brown with smallish head. Thought this would be a boring Oktoberfest, but it’s more of an amber that leans toward an Oktoberfest. And surprise, it’s pretty solid, especially given that I don’t like either style. Nothing earth shattering here, but this is a pleasant beer for an Indian summer night by the grill.

AmEricanbrew (5872) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Light brown color/ tan head. Sweet spicy caramel malt extract aromas. medium bodied. Easy drinking spicy toasted caramel flavors with mild brown sugar. not bad. tap@ The Real Pickle SHV

Aurelius (4257) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2010
I like the new embossed Redhook bottle with the split label - although the labels themselves are lame. Medium-dark, mostly clear apricot color. Light caramel APA aroma, with some powdery-perfumy overdraft. Woody, a little astringent and crisp. Talcum powder tone that was evident in the aroma is definitely present in the high palate on a deep draught. Medium body, spirited hop finish, faint chocolate at the very end. Pretty well balanced, drinkable, solid enough.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Fresh 12 oz. bottle. The pour gives a dark and hazy reddish-copper body. A thick, frothy, lasting head of cream tinted foam yields pronounced, dense clouds and tattered ribbons of lacing all over the glass. The nose shows a weird, almost tart, yeasty twang atop peppery, doughy yeast and a mild caramel and bread malt base. Hops are mild to non-existant. The flavor is equally misguided, again based in toasted caramel, with hints of dehydrated dates and slightly tart currants. Tangy yeast seems completely out of place. There’s very little bitternss, Though it’s fresh, this has either turned bad already or is just a bad recipe, the latter of which is entirely possible considering the brewery we’re talking about. The palate is semi-dry, with moderate to lively carbonation and a somewhat dragging consistency. Not good. Just not good.

rougeau13 (2017) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2010 Not a bad amber. Decent malty flavor, though I wouldn’t really agree that this has a "rich complexity"
