COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Local Harvest Ale is brewed with hops grown in Maine. The abundant aroma of citrus, pine, and lemongrass come from hopping this beer four ways: in the mash, in the kettle, steeped, and dry hopped. This auburn Autumn classic is balanced with the careful addition of chocolate and caramel malts to create this extremely popular Single Batch Series ale.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Hoppy sharp citrus layered with light malts. Kind of a muddy orange brown color. Tastes bitter and earthy. Chalky medium body. Not a very pale beer, though typically a Maine beer as indicated by the heavy water profile.

Bottle thanks to sanborn13. Deep hazy amber. Fruity caramel malt and fresh citrus hops. Flavor is lively citrus and pine hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness and light toasted malt. Residual tangy fruit and citrus.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a slightly hazy medium-dark amber with not much head. It may have been a bit too chilly. The aroma is alive with earthy hops, wild berries or raspberries, and light pale malts so it is well balanced on the nose. The body is medium and creamy. The taste is more hopped than the aroma. A nice take on the style.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled at The Great Lost Bear - Pours a dark amber in color with a medium off-white head that held together, but produced little lacing. Aroma is mostly hoppy (citrus and pine), but there is a underlying roasted maltiness that balances. Flavor is hoppy with plenty of roasted malts mixed in. Fairly bitter, which lingers through the long finish. A decent APA...

tap at Portland location - Pours hazy orange with a long lasting off-white head that laces heavily. It has a fruity, yeasty aroma. The flavor has some caramel malt up front and ample citrus accented hops. It’s medium bodied. Pretty good.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark amber with a thick, fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops with caramel and slightly roasted malts. Flavor very strong on the hops for this style of beer. Average texture. A good pale ale.

AirForceHops (2989) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On draft at brewpub in Gorham, ME. Color was caramel brown with a thin white head that left nice lacing. Aroma was of piney hops. Taste mirrors the aroma. However there was no hop bitterness which made it smooth to drink. I would drink again and was surprised on how flavorful it was.

glennmastrange (2226) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle. Moderate light bread, cookie, nutty and caramel for the malt, light flowers and spruce for the hops, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with hints of brown sugar, a mix of dark dried fruit and faint note of wood. Head is small, wispy, slightly off-white with fair slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A bit out of balance and a bit confused, but this still a good drinking American Pale Ale.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Great hoppy beer. Aromas of caramel, grass, and flowers. Taste is bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

12oz bottle. Murky amber pour. Lots of stuff floating around in this one! Piney hop and citrus aroma. Caramel and hop taste. Not a bad pale ale.
