Harvest Ale is our celebration of the changing weather and the sowing of hops and barley that will be used in our upcoming brews. We usher in the fall with a classic English style Extra Special Bitter of the highest order. Deep ruby in color with an even deeper hop flavor in fact, we throw fresh English hops into every brewing vessel, then dry hop after fermentation to impart a zesty kick. This beer has real hop character that mingles with fresh malted barley for an experience that will make you wish it were fall year round.

slushy (28) - Niagara Falls, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 Clear golden orange color with a nice white head, great lacing down the glass. The tiny bubbles in the glass are truly amazing. Floral / citrusy hops in the nose. Sweet malts, flowers, citrus, and pine on the tongue. My favorite Pale Ale. Man, Southern Tier is making some of the best beers in Western NY. I'm glad this brewery is here

Chudwick (3073) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 23, 2017
12oz bottle DOB 08/03/16 at 5:27AM - prolly the most specific DOB Ive ever seen. Whos up at 5:27 to brew beer? Thats the story I want to know. Now to try this currently to 50 for the style beer. Nose is grassy, caramel and buttery "biscuits" from Normandy. Sip adds light booze, citrus and more grass. I should say I should mowed my overgrown yard and Im getting similar flavors. Dry finish. Interesting flavor and modest taste.

Draft. Not reminiscent of an English style bitter. This is more similar to an American pale ale with its hop-forward aroma and flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tfontana (911) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Julios Liquors. Appearance is clear gold/light amber with faint sparkle, 1/2-finger width fizzy white head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is light malt, fruit, resin. Taste is fruit, resin, with mild earth and malt base. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and malty and light citrus finish. Overall, good amount of hops though a lot of that is bitter resin, which isnt my favorite. Good for the style.
