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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of hay, spruce, citrus, sage, earthy. Great balance on the nose. Tastes of resiny hops, some melon, grapefruit, honey, pepper, spicy. Very assertive, but carefully balanced. Excellent!

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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a brown/orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that takes a good minute before slowly dieing. Some nice speckled spider-web lacing leads gently into the body. Some light carbonation is seen rising. The smell is sweet with some light hops entering in with a bit of pine and citrus. The taste is sweet, once again, but the hops are fairly strong with a mild citrus taste. The palate is about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable. Overall, out of all Sebago’s offerings, this is probably my all time favorite brew by them.

A very smooth and fresh tasting ale. Good hop notes and a lightly sweet malty feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 31, 2009
(22 oz. bottle from Global Beverage) Pours hazy caramel-amber with two fingers of light yellowy-biscuit head. Big aroma of grapefruit, citrus and light pine over caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a touch prickly with some hop huskiness. Staunch, sticky sheets of lacing cling to inside of shaker. Flavor of lightly biting grapefruit and citrus over sugary, almost grainy caramel along with vanilla. Light pine and fruit. Medium-heavy bitter bite from fore through finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Nice, fresh hoppy presence with a good malt backbone.

Nice deep golden color. Aroma is full of hops, pine, citrus, and a little caramel. Taste is full of floral hops and citrus. Has a little bit of a bite in the end. Not too bad
