Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: corby112 on 11-01-2009

Our Fall seasonal Local Harvest Ale is brewed with hops and barley grown in Maine with the clear water of Sebago Lake. Local Harvest Ale is mahogany in color and has an intense bouquet of citrus, pine and lemongrass which comes from hopping this beer four ways: In the mash, in the kettle, steeped and dry hopped. After your first sip you will taste the fresh wet hops and the finish flavor of oily hops on your tongue. You will desire yet another sip. This auburn Autumn classic is balanced with the careful addition of chocolate and caramel malts to create this extremely popular local beer. Please support Maine agriculture and enjoy the harvest!

Bright copper color with little carbonation
Mild, sweet malty smell
Touch of citrus taste, sweetness and strong hoppy finish
Mouthfeel is medium
Overall not a bad brew, best thing about is its use of local ingredients. Will enjoy the four-pack, but probably not buy again

A - Cloudy amber color with a finger of off white head, but has some nice lacing.
S - You definitely get the fresh hop aroma, nice citrus grassy pine hop scents. Also you get a caramel malt base.
T - Grapefruit, lemon candy, caramel and bready malts, some earthy tones on the end. Finishes with some dry bitterness.
M - A tad bit too dry.
O - So far its the only thing I had from Sebago that I enjoyed.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Medium brown in color with a beige head of about one finger. Heavy lacing on the glass.

Smell: Rich hop smell, but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium Bodied, not smooth but not too rough. Taste of fresh hops, pine, citrus and nutty notes are subtle.

Overall: Great local brew. Will have this one again.

A-Pours a hazy dark copper color. Head is mostly white with a tan undertone. Head is small and creamy. It slowly dies off to a thin plate of froth. The head leaves consistent lacing sheets.

S-Smell is not very intense and mostly balanced. It an attractive nose. Caramel malt and solid-enough notes of grassy and floral hops. The hop presence is solid enough to hold my interest.

T-The flavor is better. Hops outmuscle the malt (only slightly). Hoppy, lingering flavors of grass, flower petals and pine with lighter citrus and even some soapy notes are all detectable. The malt is sweet and doughy. Maybe a hint of toffee? The flavors match up well.

M-Medium bodied with buzzing carbonation. Feels a bit creamy. Bitterness is medium-high and lasts for a while.

O/D-My favorite Sebago offering. I enjoyed the balance and the surprising hoppiness that arrives during first sip. A pretty tasty Harvest Pale. Also, although I had it on-tap, I love the bottle art too.
