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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with no head over a clear golden orange body. Aroma of grass, body odor, grainy and light hops. Taste is sweet and grainy with what I swear is nearly a hint of watermelon (as odd as that may sound). Thin and dry mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet caramel and toast, with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Not bad.

I believe I had this on tap at an Old Chicago. Light flavor with a hint of sweet maltiness and a definite metallic tinge. Unimpressed.

You see a lot, Doctor. But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at yourself? What about it? Why don’t you - why don’t you look at yourself and write down what you see? Or maybe you’re afraid to.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottled on 7/18/07. Poured an ugly, cloudy medium orange with very little carbonation and only the faintest dusting of head. My first impression from the aroma was "American wheat ale".. had that sweetened-up-to-make-it-tolerable/intriguing/palat character to it.. some of the sweetness appeared berry-related.. I just didn’t dig it. The flavor was a little more agreeable.. lightly-toasted berries and caramel at the core with a mild grassy/herbal hop presence.. more berries on the finish, which made it a bit hard to choke down.. decent mild smoky accents throughout. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. man.. I just didn’t care for this.

Ernest (7165) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel, grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Reasonably pleasant (if simple) aroma, but marred by a somewhat dirty aftertaste (much as with Sam Adams beers). Ehh.

blankboy (7081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size diminishing fizzy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit, toasted grain, some earthiness and sweetness -- it’s all very mild and subtle though. Mild, slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, toasted grain, sweet fruit, a bit of spices and a very light bitter finish. Some light, sweet candy-like flavour mixed in there too -- not unpleasant, just a little odd. Average bodied. It’s alright, it’s not bad but it’s nothing special, just a decent Amber-like beer.

PorterPounder (6987) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2005
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.

Bottle. I was a little disapointed with this brew. I’m not a huge fan of Ambers, but when they’re done right, I love them. This one was just a little too toasted malty for me, with not enough hop balance in my mind. Bittersweet finish, not as refreshing as I would have liked.
