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.

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Slightly hazy amber body with almost no head. Complex, inviting aroma consisting of caramel and malty sweetness and grapefruit and pine hops. Smooth, medium palate, a touch oily. The flavor starts with sweet caramel and finishes with a slight sour/bitter bite. Sugared grapefruit. A very tasty and easy to drink beer.

floydslip (383) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Amber beer with a foamy light tan head that drops considerable lace. Nose of sour dough, caramel, and nuts. Flavor has a little fruity tang initially, which is surprising, followed by bread, nuts, and light caramel, all of which finishes with a slightly acidic bitterness that lingers. Many layers of flavor--pretty good beer.

JDBaker11058 (2071) - Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2017
appearance: pretty--reddish orange amber, creamy light tan head. aroma: caramel malts, some stone fruit, grassy to floral hops, and some herbal stuff going on too. taste: slightly bitter, pretty astringent, with some aspirin, light honey and caramel, floral and herbal hops. finish: lingering stone fruit and medicine, some toasted nuts. notes: Notmy favorite. Couple more bottles of this to try, maybe it was just an off night. Bottle from the Craft Beer of the Month Club.

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

Rating this the next day after a foggy evening. From what I remember at yard house, it was orange and tasted really good.

Felsenbrau (51) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle (variety pack). Pours hazy amber. Thick light amber head, long lasting, with much lacing. Aroma faintly of bread, citrus, and strangely a very slight hint of fresh dog poop? (Ive not encounter that one before!) Taste slightly bitter, becoming more bitter over time, some orange and grapefruit, finishes more bitter. Not too bad, but probably wouldnt buy again.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is pretty husky and grainy with some sweetness and a light earthy and leafy hoppiness. The flavor is pretty weak, some thin and sweet grainy malt with a minimally bitter floral hoppiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering huskiness. Meh, cant say this one has much in the way of positive qualities.

jcr (2680) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Draft. Cloudy, deep gold body. Tight-bubbled, off-white head, lasting. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness, a bitterness that is more in the IPA category than the English Pale Ale category. Not a lot of nuance.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Feb 2012 -- This tasted very much like a California Common, but as a red. I liked it.

Beer of month club. Pours a clear gold - kinda looks like apple juice. Nose of sweet malts. Taste of caramel, malt, bread - good combination of sweetness and slight bitterness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
