COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cincinnati-based Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. will introduce its latest brand extension - Moerlein Over-the-Rhine Ale - on April 25, 2007. Moerlein OTR Ale was initially going to be called Moerlein Pale Ale, but Hardman said he decided to name it OTR Ale instead, in part as a tribute to the many people who are working to revitalize the long-neglected community just north of Cincinnati’s central business district. The beer is of the type that early brewers in Over-the-Rhine would have made in the era before modern refrigeration, he said. The recipe includes plenty of hops, which acted as a preservative, and lots of malt to balance the bitterness of the hops.

Bottle. Pours with alight brown color and a medium head. A very nice beer, kind of more like a brown or amber ale than a pale. Very nice aromas of malts more so than hops. A flavor profile with some dry hops but mainly dominated by caramel and malts. The finish has a bit of the metallic notes of a German style beer. I liked this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark bronze color with a large orange-tan head. The aroma was sweet, fruity and spicy with a toasted caramel note. The flavor was bitter, fruity and dry with fruity hops, caramel and nut showing through. The finish was medium length with bitter fruity hops. Solid.

Thick copper with no head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, sweet malt and a touch of alcohol. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Balanced with low bitterness. Palate is a little lively. Not bad but not great.

I thought this was slightly above average. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

Pour produced a clear, amber body topped by a large off-white head. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, as is the palate, though not overbearingly so. This ale is significantly malted to give this pale ale a good measure of sweetness, followed by the bitter aftertaste of the hops. I liked the approachability, good lacing, and balance of this pale ale.

12 oz Bottle from Beer of the Month Club. Copper pour with an off white head. Nose of citrus and malt aroma. Taste of apples, citrus hops, malt and faint spices. Really mild, definately one that would pair well with food or for a session brew.

2.5
cAPSLOCK (156) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2008
I think I got a bottle from a bad batch, or perhaps old? Sour nose, Sour body on otherwise what might be a nice pale ale. Very hoppy, but sour.

Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2008
nice brew, has a very faint hop aroma, a mild citrus hop taste, body seemed a tad thin, has a bit of a roast malt aftertaste.

Like...roasty apples on the nose, I guess. This is a bizarre brew. Same in the flavor. Interesting, but aight. Really not sure what to make of it, but it’s not offensive and is better than the majority of mild pale ales.

2.9
Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Its good, nice amount of malts which gives off a full presence done caramel, and the hops are not potent yet enough to satisfy a hop head.
