4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful amber colour. RIght off the bat, hit the fruity scent of fresh hops. Sweet passionfruit and caramel notes at the front, with a heavy, but not overpowering bitterness at the end.
This is the 2017 Harvest Ale. I had the 2016 and I remember it being liquid caramel. This one is better.
Pours clear amber with a persistent white head. Aroma is grassy and toffee malt. Taste is moderately sweet, slightly bitter and, I realized halfway through, slightly salty. There are notes of toffee malt, hay, grassy and earthy hops and possibly a touch of smoke. Full bodied and moderately carbonated. The malt is not overly sweet but has a distinct roundness due to the hint of salt and the hops are sharp, providing a contrast without being dominant. Very tasty!

Bottle - Woody hops and caramel. Clear copper with a small white head. Bitter hoppiness and caramel with a long finish. Nothing special but not bad. ESPh (135) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours a copper/amber color and good white head. Good caramel malt aroma. Nice smooth to drink, strong malt backbone, grassy hop finish. Well done.

Poured a bubbly off white head, has a dark amber appearance. Heavily carbonated. Good lacing. Hops are quite apparent in the aroma. Also, the same can be said about the taste. Quite hoppy with some lighter malts and a creamy mouthfeel. Smooth going down as well. Has a good balance of cascade hops and malts, with hops maybe a bit more aggressive. Very good stuff! Too bad it’s not year round! Johnstondan (11) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Great american pale ale. Malt driven with a nice nose and full body. Would drink again!

La robe ambrée me surprend. La mousse en anneau laisse quelques traces de son passage. Au nez, malts doux, caramel avec des angles de toffee, oranges et touche de pin/florale. Au goût, des houblons encore fruités, une avancée florale, profil forestier et coussin malté. En bouche, corps huileux et modérément pétillant. En finale, amertume fruitée et résineuse qui se prolonge. Oakes (18199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy light brown-amber. Has a toffeeish, sweeter aroma. Has toffee, caramel, alcohol and an earthy hop balance. ametras (1685) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap at Hintonburg Public House. Murky copper with a frothy off-white head. Flavors are bread, toasted cereals, caramel, citrus and wet socks with herbal and earthy notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture. Raistlin (426) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
Not good at all. That being said i am not much of a a pale ale lover, so that might be contributing factor to me not enjoying the taste of this beer. Tastes like pine needles. a_sully (457) - - OCT 22, 2015
Red body with a thin white head. Aroma of hops. Taste of hops and caramel, very smooth finish.
