COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harvest Ale is our celebration of the changing weather and the sowing of hops and barley that will be used in our upcoming brews. We usher in the fall with a classic English style Extra Special Bitter of the highest order. Deep ruby in color with an even deeper hop flavor… in fact, we throw fresh English hops into every brewing vessel, then dry hop after fermentation to impart a zesty kick. This beer has real hop character that mingles with fresh malted barley for an experience that will make you wish it were fall year ‘round.

Delicious beer that makes a nice change from the regular IPA fare. Full bodied and well balanced, it’s a brew I can see myself having a few of for sure.

This is nice. Citrusy, fruity. Very nice mouthfeel, soft but slightly prickly. Fuzzy almost. Enjoyable.

Tap, pours a clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma had a little more hops than I was expecting with still quite a bit of bread and caramel sweetness rounding it out, the flavor has a hop front end with some spice in the finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff.

On tap. Pours a light amber with white head and lots of lacing. It has a light aroma of amber malt and earthy hops. The flavor is mild earthy hops and amber malts with a balanced, semisweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarinEvelyn (532) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Aroma is very hoppy and fairly sweet. citrus/orange. pine. Taste is on point. Hoppiness stays throughout, but strong sweetness, pine, and fairly prevelant citrus.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Light bronze body with ok head. Nicely bitter aroma that’s a mix of PNW hops and English hop varietals--a bit of Olde Worlde meets New World, while straddling the line between ESB and IPA. Similarly, the flavor straddles these lines with a mix of hop varieties for each content. Fairly high bitterness content, with a light sweetness, and quite drinkable.

Kita (989) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottled, 0.355l. Cloudy orange amber color with small creamy, mostly diminishing off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Strong aroma of herbal and floral hops, caramel and dried fruits like apricots and oranges with more subtle nutty notes. Taste starts with rich, smooth and sweet caramel malt, following is fresh with citric acidity, mouthfeel is warming with alcohol note, while finish is moderate bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Not as good as American brews can be...
