Can shared, tried to pop it but the tab didn’t open on this rare treat. We had to puncture it with a corkscrew. Pours a shit brown color with small beige head. The smell is rotten veggies, rotten wood, ash, poop, and dumpster snack, flavor is the same crap grain and smokey malt with a touch of vomit. Not sure how someone could sell this and not feel bad about the product, Total piece of shit that harshed everyone’s buzz. hopscotch (11311) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Can... Pours cloudy and Longhorn-orange with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Heavy caramel, fruitcake and marmalade intermingled by loads of fresh, bright, resiny, floral and citrusy hops. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is a nearly perfect balance of roasted caramel and citrusy, spicy hops. Trends just a touch bitter. Nice acrid bitterness with a kiss of singed caramel in the finish.

In short: Nutty caramelized malts and grassy eathy bitter hops. Unusual fun beer. jcwattsrugger (12549) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2009
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy light brown body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a lot of fresh grassy hops. Taste has a very unusual malt bill for a harvest hop beer. Very nutty taste (hazelnuts) with caramel, earth and even some bananas. Then comes the very grassy and somewhat resinous hops with a long bitterness of medium intensity. This is a fun and different beer. I’m sure alchemist could make an even better Harvest Ale if they went with a more standard malt bill but I appreciate the originality nonetheless. All in all another good beer from Alchemist. I have many fond memories of this place. I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I drank my first pint at this brewpub.
09–on tap-pours a retaining light tan head that laces and hazy copper color. Aroma is sweet citrus/pine, secondary medium malt. Taste is equal but unbalanced peat, medium malt, sweet citruspine/herbal hops with some bite. Comes across as a red crossed with a Scottish ale.

Deep amber pour, tending to brown. Thick and sticky tan head. The nose is kind of strange with a little bit of cocoa underlying a soft herbal spiciness. There is a fairly dank piny hop nose with some soft sweet caramelly malts. The hop freshness really comes through. It’s an unusual take on the harvest ale, but it does work. Sort of a hoppy brown, but it works.

A reddish brown ale with a thin moka coffee lacing head. Aroma is pungeant, with nutty roastiness. In mouth, a fresh balanced light malt with sustained nutty bitterness. Spot to style. On tap at brewery 13 Oct. 2008. josarah (112) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Draft at brewpub, deep copper color, malty aroma. Great toasty, roasty ,malty beer. This batch had a much lower ABV (5.3) and the IBU’s 25. The perfect autumn beer. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Harvest 2007 Description: A German inspired Aale brewed with a blend of six malts and a nice balance of hops. 5.5 % ABV 25 IBU MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2006
On tap at the brewpub.
Brown in color with some amber highlights. Small tan head that lasts throughout most of the beer. Aroma is fresh and malty with caramel, toasted grain, bread, some light fresh resinous hops, and a touch of chocolate and even perhaps roast. Taste is malty, with caramel, bready, light notes of chocolate with a nice light fresh floral hop presence that nicely balances it out. Light to moderate bitterness throughout. Body is nice- medium to full for the style, lightly chewy. Finishes malty with lingering light bitterness. well done.
On draft pours a coppery color . Thin head. Aroma was sweet but the finish was too bitter for my taste. I was actually dissapointed. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Drank this with stegosaurus
On draft pours copper with a decent size white head. Aroma of sweet malts and earthy hops. The flavor is sweet up-front with a mild bitter finish. Ok brew, drinkable.
