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.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle from BevMo in Natomas, CA. Copper color with a slight whitish head. Rather roasted malt aroma. Medium body with creamish carbonation. Flavor is spiced malt. You could sell this as a pumpkin ale. Like pumpkin is tasteless - right? It’s all about the spice. These are really spicey noble hops. (Ok, they may not meet strict geographic requirements) A real surprise. It’s very fresh and clean. Almost deserves a new category. Not one of those droopy ambers. Really stands up and stands out.

daknole (9415) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle from total wine. Crystal clear amber pour with a decent sized whitish head. Aroma is very malty with some hints of toast, crackers and grains. Flavor is pretty nice actually. Smooth and malty without being too malty. Hops are barely present. Better than I expected.

hopscotch (9380) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle... Murky burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is malty and earthy... caramel, canvas and beef stock. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. Caramel flavor with mineral bitterness that provides perfect balance, but allows the malts to shine brightly. Crisp, clean finish. Seems more like a märzen than an amber ale.
