As days get shorter and sleeves get longer, Baxter Brewing releases its fall seasonal, Hayride Autumn Ale. A generous portion of two rye malts give the beer a full body, bready flavor, and subtle spiciness; while toasted malts provide a touch of sweetness and a rich, almost reddish hue. New Zealand Pacifica and Pacific Jade hops balance Hayride’s maltiness and suggest notes of oranges and tropical fruit. Finally, we cold-condition the beer on oak, with light additions of ginger, black pepper, and orange peel, bringing out the spiciness of the rye and rounding out the soft sweetness of the beer. Hayride will give a touch of warmth for those cool fall nights, while remaining deliciously drinkable.

2013-08-16. Dark amber body with a small beige head. 3+ Sort of floral aroma, modest malt. Whispers of rye? Maybe? 7+ Flavour is moderately bitter throughout with mild grainy rye like notes. Light fruity accents. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Okay. Can At Campground Brewdown.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
12oz can thanks to jslot38. Pours a full haze deeper red with billowing beige foam. Great retention and spotty lacing. Nose is sweaty, strawberry, unsweetened tea, moving to sharp acetone, some lemon soap. Taste is bland, chalky, minerally with some astringent bitterness. Strange. Can’t even place a beer style on this one.
