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.

Dorwart (2465) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Thin white head of small bubbles. Very good corbonation. Looks great in the glass. Sweet citrusy hops. Lots of orange, grass and yeasty notes. Color is a crystal clear dark gold. Crisp and dry palate. Good helping of bitterness and lots of fresh astringent hops. Makes the mouth pucker a little. Bitterness is a little bit on the harsh side though. Finishes dry and bitter with a little bit of pasty film residue. A decent brew.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2007
12oz bottle courtesy of eaglefan538. Citrus hops open the nose for this one. Hazy gold body with white head and good amount of lacing. Fresh citrus grapefruit juice flavor that refreshes the palate. Good brew thanks Brian.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a very light golden with a mod carbonationa dn nice tight white head with good lace. Aroma is tons of citrus hops, resinous with some pine sol. Hardly any malt in the flavor either- mostly just resinous fresh harvested hops- a bit green and vegetal but mostly just fresh citrus hops, with lots of earth and tea drying bitterness in the end. Nice APA!!!

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2009 12oz bottle-A golden body with a nice two finger white head which has an aroma of hops and more hops. A light body with the tast of citrus, grapdfruit, sweetness, and more hops. Great overall flavor. One of the better ESB’s I’ve tasted.

nuplastikk (5255) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2007
12oz bottle. Light golden color. Floral and dry, with a crisp, spicy finish. Aggressively bitter without the hop syrup flavor in other big beers. Very drinkable, and pretty unique.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Another good beer from Southern Tier. Fruity, citrus aroma with light grainy malt. Clear, bright, golden-yellow pour with a thick white head and cloudy lacing. Light and fresh on the palate, snappy and crisp with a nice bitter bite. Mellow and easy going, it’s a real drinkable beer. Familiar flavor of pine with lemon and orange. Fresh hop taste with a mild malt backbone. Sort of has a dry wheat quality as well.

kseecs16 (1213) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle. Poured an orange hued golden with a thin off-white head that laces well. A sweet citrusy hops aroma. Taste is very fresh, herbal hops, not overwhelming and leaves a trace of nice resiny bitterness.

Was looking forward to this beer after hearing about it on a Podcast "The Good Beer Show". What a find. Looks like a typical light colored Ale, but it smells wonderful. You can really smell the hops and some citrus tones. It’s light in the mouth, but man does it pack a punch of hoppiness. Wonderful Beer, wish it was fall all the time.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. Body-light golden hue with a one inch foamy white head. Nose-good clean stale hops, cabbage, light cereal. Very nice clean nose. Taste-crisp, light hops (nice to see a beer that doesn’t ram hops down your throat), light 7-up, light citrus, medium soft bitterness, almost creamy. Very well done, and well crafted. Quite enjoyable. Would be a great session beer.
