Knilas (29) - Vandalia, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2015
From the bottle: Pours a gorgeous Amber color with a fine 1.5" head. Aromas of Apple cider, dark fruits and some spice. Taste is similar, adding in some malt and median bitterness. A decent mid-range brew. Worth the coin.

This has everything a fall seasonal should have. Amber, earthy tones with a light fruit aroma. Mild hop hints and a perfect gravity that give it a sessional approach. A Fall favorite.

b3shine (8746) - Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a somewhat cloudy amberish brown with foamy beige head somewhere between off-white and light beige that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet with notes of dark fruit and floral hops. Tastes like it smells with a bit more maltiness. Solid on the palate. Good beer.

Draft pour. Pours a hazy copper with a beige head of foam. Aroma is herbal and grassy. Bitter and earthy. Bigger bodied and sticky mouthfeel.

Very unique flavor it gives off. I couldnt quite put my finger on it but then thought it almost had a sweet tart taste to it. Very light taste with fruity flavor

nuplastikk (6146) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2013
12oz bottle. This is really what I like to see in a seasonal beer; someone breaking the mold but still remaining sensible and true to the spirit. Bigger and bolder than the bottle would suggest. Big, rich,malt tones with a pleasant, earthy, fruity, hop balance. Big, full bodied beer for the style, with a nice

8/26/2013: Mt. Carmel Harvest Ale - I originally had this in a bottle a couple weekends ago at a friends party and liked it. It really reminded me of a decently hopped ESB, similar to Goose Island Honkers Ale. Bases on the one bottle I had previously, I decided to try a pint of it with dinner. Although it is still decent, I found it to be lacking body and the depth of flavor that I thought it had from the bottle. On tap, the beer had an okay toasted maltiness (reminds me of dried leaves), tea, and some light earhty-floral hoppiness, but it seemed a bit thin and had a mineral/hard water charasteristic to it that just didnt work. Im surprised that this ABV listed on this beer is 8% as the alcohol is nowhere to be found in the flavor. Even so, thats way too much alcohol for an ESB. Overall, Id rather have a Honkers Ale. Sorry Mt. Caramel, but this one just isnt that unique or great, although it does have a nice amber color.

Draught (pint) at Arthurs in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #21 for this beer.
