16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Handed across the bar a clear, dark copper-gold body (looks like brewed tea), with a thin coating of white suds. Standard laceworks on the way down.

Smell: Pale malts with some soundly bready and biscuit-hinted notes to it and sweetish touch of golden syrup, maybe an infinitesimal bit of light caramel. Modestly spicy, fruity as well.

Taste: Bready, biscuity maltiness given a thin drizzle of treacle for a kiss of sweetness. Earthy, spicy hops with some dried lemon peel. Moderate bitterness. Some late fruitiness with a rebound of sugar for a hint of candied apple. Bittersweet, earthy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Harvest Ale is an enjoyable, quaffable brew for early Sunday morning drinking.

A: Pours a tannish orange color with good transparency, not much of a head but mostly a nice off white ring around the top that left some nice lacing around the glass.

S: Smells like a lighter pumpkin beer from this brewery"pumking" some pumpkin in the nose and some hops as well, and slight lemon zest on the tail end.

T: Similiar to the nose with some fresh fruit going around as well, green apples and pears came to mind, pumpkin is there throughout the drink.

M: Medium bodied, high carbonation and a little dry.

O: Not a bad beer at all, simple drinker, and a more simple beer from this brewery which tends to make phenomenal brews, good taste and refreshing.
