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 Cincinnatis 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.

Pretty solid beer. Not really special but still a very drinkable beer. A little bit of a lingering after taste.

12oz bottle, thanks to xnoxhatex giving this to me. pours amber with beige head. nose has some sweet malt notes. flavor has mostly toasted malts with some caramel. wheres the hops? i guess fresher bottles are claiming some more hop notes but this seems like it was never that hoppy. kinda boring and too sweet. some big hop notes would do this beer wonders.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy medium brown with a 2 finger tan head. Great lacing. Smells very floral. Some light biscuit in there. The taste is very floral with some yeastyness. Moderate bitterness throughout lingering through the finish. A little bit of malt is detectable. Just an ok beer that I dont really care about having again.

A clear amber color with little head, this one has relatively little smell. Its got a decent hoppy taste to it and comes off very light with little aftertaste.

Pours amber to copper with white head and minimal lace. Nose is sour with slight biscuity malt. Medium on the tongue with prominent sour hoppy flavor slightly balanced with biscuity malt, metallic tang, and resinous hops.

Bottle from Party Source. The bottle had some weird crustys around the cap after I removed it so that is not a good sign. The beer pours a slightly luminous orange-amber color with absolutely no head or lacing. Also not a good sign. Light malt and pine in the nose. Medium-bodied and fruity with some toasted malt and piney hops flavor, however the flavors are buried by tartness. The finish is tart fruit with a touch of sweet malt. I have to conclude I got a bad bottle, but will need to try again to be sure.

OTRihtnsgbt (28) - Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color. Lots of roast malt flavors, not enough hops to provide any balance. Not at all what Im looking for in an APA. This beer is somewhat palatable when fresh, downright awful when not.

On tap at the Campus Pub. Lots of hops without being too bitter, some malt backbone.
