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.

Hop-forward ale with just enough toasted malt with touches of caramel in the back-end to give it some foundation. Drinks like an IPA.

A nice hoppy beer with a biter finish.
Reminded me of an IPA.
Not a pumpkin ale or an Oktoberfest, so not your typical fall seasonal.
Enjoyable.
