Draft in a pint glass.

Dim bar, hard to see, but head is really sticky and rings the glass permanently. Clear amber color.

Smells of grapefruit and some light herbal hops.

Solid malt backbone with a sort of oat-y note mid-palate. Lots of hop bitterness. Sort of like a hoppy Yuengling lager....

Medium to full-bodied. Light carbonation. Long finish.

Another solid offering from S.T., but nothing spectacular.

12 oz Brown Bottle.

A: Pours a murky dark copper color. Medium sized head. Thin but bubbly retention with little lacing. Still the color is very nice.

S: Cool and crisp with bitter hops. After the beer has sat for a bit sweet fruity malts come out. Also spicy with a bready aroma.

T/M: Biscuity. Smooth. Creamy. Sweet. Cool. Hops are earthy and bitter. Sugar with some sweetness. Medium bodied. Earthy bitter aftertaste. Very good taste overall.

O: I quite enjoyed Harvest Ale. Nice bitter taste with a balancing of malt sweetness, but not too much that it kills the hops.

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.
