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

Hops dominate this supposedly fall ale. Little if any malt character. Not ever sure if this would pass as an IPA.

This is one of favorite seasonals. I look forward to it each year. I think it is an outstanding ESB with an ode to an Octoberfest.

pinkzambia (1461) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Clear gold color with a small white ring head. Hoppy aroma and it seemed more American than English. Definite hops in the flavor with a cardboard finish.

IndianaRed (2384) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle clear light amber quick light tan head. Light toasted malts and plenty of bitter noble hop aroma. Quite bitter and hoppier than I expected. Very clean dry finish.

ESPh (68) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Copper-amber color with a nice head. Good presence of hops without a real bite. Very tasty and is now a seasonal favorite.

ansermadide (1519) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Golden in color, this has a bright, hoppy citrus and pine aroma with some caramel sweetness. It’s thin bodied and a little dirty, with a characteristic rye grain flavor that’s gentle, but surprisingly pleasant. Easy, simple, clean, and sessionable.

ROBC3366 (615) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 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.

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
