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.

H-O-P-S Simply a great beer. "quaffable" A rocky head dissolves quickly. Fruity aroma. Tasty.

Dark aprioct color with decent light beige head and good lacing. I agree with last reviewer quite fruity and more of a cream than a true IPA...which is probably why I like it. I don’t see the ’plenty’ of hops but I notice the malt. well done.

12oz bottle. Dark amber color with minimal head and lacing. Fantastic malt aroma and flavor with nice hints of caramel and toffee. A great beer that’s named after a long-neglected, historic section of Cincinnati.
