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.

2011 vintage: 6.7% abv

Thanks to iNBe. Amber clear color. The hops are an strange mix. Some of the straight bitterness of the English hops with some grassy and herbal hops as well. Serving: Bottle

DuffMan (6531) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2013
On tap @ Lüke’s, New Orleans. Medium orange-amber hue, average off white head. Peachy and citrus hop character share equal billing with caramel malts, ending with an assertive bitterness. A bold and characterful representation of the style.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a clear orange-golden color with an off-white head. Candied fruit and tangerine nose. Full body and slightly oily. Tangerine and apricot flavor with an adequate malt backbone for fullness and support.

Liked this a lot. Clear amber pour. Healthy head, but it did dissipate quickly. Honestly, that’s the only weakness of this beer. Pleasant, raisiny taste and a great doughy aroma. Go get some of this.

nimbleprop (4596) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear orange amber with some thin, fizzy, white head. Nose is nice and inviting, sweet, cracker, biscuits with orange honey, a little soap, a little citrus. Nice. Flavor is lightly sweet, mild orange, honey, biscuit, malt. Clean finish. Doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but very solid.

TheJester (1793) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
355 mL bottle. Was pleasantly surprised to read the description and find that this was a Brit. Had to let it warm up a bit. Brilliant looking pour. Lovely, sticky, beige head. Lotsof floral hops in the nose - none of the earthiness I expect from Brit hops. Soapy, floral hops in the flavour. Doesn’t taste like a Brit. It tastes really good, though. Perfect bitterness for the style.

From a bottle. Pours clear copper with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes malty and like citrus hops. Creamy, nutty Light body and medium carbonation. Smells nutty, creamy, and like citrus.

scotchzombie (318) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours hazy amber gold with a fluffy off-white (yellow) head that lasts a bit. Some bubbles within. Aroma is hay, grass, malts. Touch of pine. Taste is harvesty - grainy malt upfront with a touch of caramel and slammed home with hop bitterness. Some spiciness. Not a ton of depth; not so balanced either. Decent, but there are better fish in the sea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Easy drinking ale, but not a lot going on for me. With that said, my wife and her friend really liked it.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Taste citrus and bitter. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
