single bottle from Gary’s in madison. Pours a clear deep reddish amber. Aroma is of caramel, butter, toffee, diacetyl I think. Taste is the same, smooth lightly bitter finish. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear lightish amber with a thin white film of a head. Aroma is weak but includes some toasted and caramel malts with light nutty hints. Flavor is also on the light side, but is clean and easy to drink- more light caramel, some toffee, nuts, and a very light herbal hoppy finish. Nothing bad here, but nothing really noteworthy either. jwdevalue (158) - Neptune, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle. Poured nice deep color aroma of caramel. Left good taste. Would def drink again. DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Clear deep copper pour with aroma of caramel malt, slight tobacco, nuts, and figgy fruit. Tastes caramel malty, with some vinous fruit notes, hops, and slight urethane and diacetyl flavors. This one is mediocre. The harvest must have been hampered by all the rain. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Clear dark copper with frothy off-white head. Sweet malt aroma mostly, red apple skins, some hay or grassy notes as well. Can’t really sense any hops, though I trust they’re there. Tangy/sweet malt flavor, with a very mild bitterness on the finish. Palate a little watery. I got excited over the word "harvest," but this one falls a little short on the satisfaction scale. Still, not terrible. Drinkable session beer.

Light brown in color with light malty-ish aroma. Taste should have a bit more malty backing to it but falls short. Not bad, but quite mediocre. Not my style of brew, but even so this should have a bit more oomph. fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2006
This offering from Long Trail pours a deep red clear with a thin head off-white. The nose is caramel, nutty, faint hop presence that continues sweet with a strong floural and fruit background. The taste is somewhat bitter with a strong hop citrus rind bitterness. The mouthfeel then moves to a malty sweet caramel, maple syrup balancing act that finishes somewhat tart in nature. This is a quality session brew one that you can drink all day.

Has a nice smooth malty taste with a very slight burnt aroma. some bitterness and hops on the palate. Nice head that hangs on. Not bad. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Clear copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, toasted caramel. Mouthfeel is thin. Taste is mild sweet, some caramel but it’s dominated by solid earthy bitterness. Leaves a bitterness on the tongue. Overall a non-offensive, but not very special beer. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2006
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange/amber color with about a half inch of lasting white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some hints of caramel at the end. The taste is very sweet and caramelly with a nice malty middle and a crisp yet slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and very tasty.
