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.

Light golden in color with a thick and frothy white head. Resinous and sticky aroma - very inviting. Sweet malt base is a nice platform for the agressive hoppiness of this ale. Lots of grass and lemon tang, with some residual dryness

demitriustown (1057) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2007
12 oz bottle via trade with Jah Noth (Thanks!) A fruity hop nose at first, grapefruit, light and citrusy, with a definate pine note to the hops. Pours a clear golden color with a rocky white head that lingers. Taste is the bitter hopped out flavor is what comes to the forefront. Less of the fruitiness that you get in the aroma is not very prevalent in the taste. Somewhat grainy and gritty too. Palate is definitely bitter with a long lasting aftertaste. Overall, Solid but not stellar. There’s something weird about the taste that I can’t put my finger on but its a sort of a twang.

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Chewy, fruity hop, honey and wheat nose. Chewy and peppery taste, a bit overcarbonated, but has a nice husky grain, wheat and chewy orange-flavored hop taste. Nothing spectacular, but still enjoyable.

CapFlu (4472) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2007
(Bottle) Courtesy of a trade with Blankboy. Really been looking forward to this beer. Read a lot about it but never seen it at the numerous Northern NY beer fests? Pours a foamy, almond-coloured thin head. It doesn’t really dissipate much - nice retention. Clear light golden colour. Nose is very fruity, very citrus, very orange. Flavour of sharp orange hops with a watery after-palate followed by a slight bitter hop finish. Everything you need in an APA. Lovely stuff.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2007
From a 12oz Bottle. Pours a very clear honey gold color with a soapy layer of brilliant white head. Gardeny aroma of goldenrod pollen and perfumy iris stalks blend nicely with some pithy orange atop a gently baked barley malt base. Light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a cleansing prickle. Fresh hop flavors abound among the light malt base. Very tasty. The hops give it a nice dark pithy character with a touch of almost rye-ish spice. A long herbal spicy finish rounds this out nicely.

I got a growler of this from the 6 pack house of beer (West) in erie. I wasnt impressed as i had been with other souther tier brews but for a autumn seasonal i guess it was decent.

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden, firm small head. Citric grapefruity hop aroma. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Lots of hay and grapefruit from the hops. WIth it’s interesting sweaty hay character it gets reminiscent of an Americanized Hook Norton Haymaker. Lingering bitter finish. In many Southern Tier I have found the malt profile to be too hard and clean, but in this beer the mouthfeel is a little more rounded and the crispness feels more appropriate.

Pour is a yellow color with a fizzy white head. Hoppy and earthy aroma suprised me a little with the nice hop presence. Medium palate puts a hoppy, crisp, clean brew on display. The finish is dry. This is very drinkable and pleasant.

Nephilium (1319) - Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Nice citrus hop aroma, with an undertone of tannin. Very pale, small head, and moderate carbonation in the appearance of the beer itself. But the flavor is there, sharp crisp hop tastes slowly fading away. I really wish this was available year round.

12 oz bottle from Shadey. Smell was fairly faint, but it did smell fresh. The color was pale, even moreso than Is typically seen in a pale ale. Flavor was slightly hoppy, with some nice spices going on. I kind of liked this.
