Georgia

3.93/5  rDev +1.8%

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.

West Virginia

4/5  rDev +3.6%

Appearance: Copper. Nice frothy white head (sudsy) turns into decent lace.
Smell: Fruity citrus, bit of grapefruit, and mainly pine.
Taste: Pepper, (salty?), light citrus, bitter pines.

I think this is a great. It has a nice, subtle sweetness to the smell which is then complemented by a good, bitter piney taste. A very nice seasonal offering indeed. I would get this again.
