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.

Draft at County Grill in Yorktown VA. Had no idea this was new. Came out amber with a small bit of froth on top. Being as this is draft, that’s all the head I expected. Nose was rather nice, surprisingly enough. Light toffee, earthy hops, and moderate maltiness. Taste is lightly hopped and semi-sweet. Hints of toffee, sweet malts, hops, light spice and light nuttiness. Body is rather light, but very drinkable. Finishes with more of a hop splash, light toffee and sweet malts. Not too bad, but nothing over the top.

GUess this one is the newest seasonal from Red Hook. Not listed on their web site! Clear, coppery pour. Weak head disappears quickly. Virtually NO lacing. Weak nose to go with that. VERY little carbonation! Too little, in fact. Actually cracked a 2nd one to verify my 1st sample was not just flat. Too bad, too, because the flavor was pretty good, with a small hop bite at the finish. Could’ve been a winner, but is barely an also-ran. Not awful, just blah.
