COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the fall days grow shorter, beer drinkers naturally start their migration toward more robust, full-bodied brews. Late Harvest is an easy-drinking, yet flavorful brew that features a deep chestnut color and unique, roasted malt aroma and flavor. Late Harvests rich flavor is the result of using four different malts, yet the robust profile remains balanced and sophisticated, thanks to our two distinctive hop additions. Late Harvest pairs nicely with grilled burgers or any tailgate cuisine. Available August through October.

12 ounce bottle. Picked this one up because it was on sale and I was in the mood for an autumn seasonal. Poured into a basic tumbler glass. The first thing I notice with this beer is the clarity, as its crystal clear. Nice, full, 2 inch head thats well constructed. Aroma is best described as subdued. Less polite, you could say that it just doesnt seem like there is anything there. Faint malts, maybe, if you stretch for it. Happily it tastes better than it smells, with a crisp malt bite and some nice sweetness in the finish. Flavor is pretty good, actually. It hits you with a rush of brown sugar up front, followed by dried apricots and peaches in the finish. This one doesnt have a lot of aspiprations. Its meant to be an easy drinking autumn seasonal, and in that regard its quite successful.

mmmbeer (1408) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent copper with maroon undertone, medium carbonation, 5mm white head quickly bubbled away to a white ring around the glass, light lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, and wheat. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is there but water comes rushing in, middle has a light hop feel to if, finish is sweet- but fades quickly. It was on sale, itll work.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle. Pale amber appearance with a little head. Aroma is some spicy pine hops and caramel malts. Flavor is caramel, fairly rich roast, with a little hop bitter. Not bad.

JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Appearance: medium clear amber/orange. Aroma: apricots and maybe peaches, some light caramel malts and some woody hops. Taste: a slight malty flavor, then some medium-bitter hops. Finish: bitter, slightly floral, slightly fruity, and mild. Notes: unremarkable seasonal.

I thought this one stunk pretty bad. No discernible palate or specific flavor. It just seemed kind of ambiguous and not really having a flavor. Threw some ingredients in a bottle and it came out brown, so they called it autumn ale...but its lame.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Light amber, good head. Light fruit aroma - like peaches - mixed with hops. Taste has a light fruit taste too, but with a nice balance of bitterness. Finish is bitter and that fruit feel is still there.

On tap at Eb and Floes, Bald Head Island, copper very slightly cloudy with a fairly big taste, sweet but not too much, brown sugar and cookies.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle at a friends cookout. Pours light coppery brown with smallish head. Thought this would be a boring Oktoberfest, but its more of an amber that leans toward an Oktoberfest. And surprise, its pretty solid, especially given that I dont like either style. Nothing earth shattering here, but this is a pleasant beer for an Indian summer night by the grill.

Light brown color/ tan head. Sweet spicy caramel malt extract aromas. medium bodied. Easy drinking spicy toasted caramel flavors with mild brown sugar. not bad. tap@ The Real Pickle SHV

Aurelius (5214) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2010
I like the new embossed Redhook bottle with the split label - although the labels themselves are lame. Medium-dark, mostly clear apricot color. Light caramel APA aroma, with some powdery-perfumy overdraft. Woody, a little astringent and crisp. Talcum powder tone that was evident in the aroma is definitely present in the high palate on a deep draught. Medium body, spirited hop finish, faint chocolate at the very end. Pretty well balanced, drinkable, solid enough.
