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.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 (12/2014) This years version is less complex then my original tasting - could be late in its freshness cycle. Nice ale. Mildly aromatic. Pale clear amber. Refreshing crisp bitter on a solid malt body. Some nuance - taste starts with balanced interplay between malt sweet and hop bitter with the bitter winning out in the finish. Still good, just not as dramatic. (11/2012 - 3.9) Beers like this make me like hops. Nice pour, brief, shallow, off-white head. Warm amber-gold in color - very close to the label color. The Aroma - one of the more complex and pleasing hop aromas I?ve had. The Taste - hop forward, but married to a malt background, very integrated, nicely done. It starts as if it?s going with that overused banana taste and then curves into an elegant, slightly peppery ginger zone. This is one to look for.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Ambar oscura, miel. Escasa espuma blanca. Turbia. Aroma muy potente, que se nota desde muy lejos. Pino, floral. Excelente en boca. Muy frutal, floral y lupulada, melocotón, flores. También se deja notar la malta, dando un toque acaramelado, muy rico. Un excelente ejemplo de ale americana con magnífico tono lupulado pero sin el amargor de una IPA.

12 oz bottle. Amber orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of oranges, spicy hops, grain, dandelions, and dried apricots. Taste is of spicy hops, moss, earth, bitter florals.

bigtaster (796) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours a clear copper orange color about a one finger beige head. Nose is grass, grapefruit, mango. Medium body, medium carbonation, medium caramel sweetness, dry finish, slight bitterness. Great interpretation of the style, even if it’s more IPA like.

서던 티어 브루 - 하베스트 에일 6.4% ABV 한모금 입에 넣고 곧바로 잔을 주문해 따라마신 맥주. 단순한 에일같지만 상당히 복잡한것들이 마실때마다, 혹은 입안에서 두서없이 튀어나온다. 버라이어티한 향연 꼭 다시 마셔보고 싶은 좋은 맥주다. 잠깐 정보를 살펴보니 그해 갓 수확한 보리를 사용해 홉과 함께 발효시킨 후 드라이 호핑 했다고 한다. 신시내Ȝ 오하이오, 미국 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

SlovakSniper (3891) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bonne bière offerte par rodenbach99. Houblons américains et touche anglaise. Malts grillés. Aucun sucre résiduel. Bonne sécheresse. Trois ou quatre gorgées plus loin, le verre est déjà fini. Facile à boire avec sa pointe citronnée en arrière-goût. Une véritable aubaine. J’aimerais bien la reboire un jour.

Bottle. Very hoppy nose. Medium amber color. Medium carbonation. Very robust hoppy taste, just bordering on astringent. Overall, a strong tasty ale, one of my new favorites

rodenbach99 (3564) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Une bouteille partagée. Un liquide jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez agréable de houblon et de grain sec. Une touche de caramel agrémante le tout. Une bouche bien faite avec des notes de grains et de houblon. Une finale amère.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, spice, yeast, some bready and toast, hints of earth, nice buttered popcorn. Taste is a mix of grass, butter, bread, hints of spice, yeast, some red fruit, finishing bitter, grassy, buttered toast. Very nice, wish there was a bit more malty notes, finishing bitter, slightly sweet.

This brew is excellent! The extra hops lends a powerful kick in the aroma. The taste is toasty barley wonderland--I just love it. I would certainly get this again when it comes out again next fall.
