Notes/Commercial Description:
Scythe & Sickle is an-amber ale brewed with a variety of malts, including pils, rye flakes and oat flakes, for incredible depth of flavor and a hint of natural sweetness. Scythe & Sickle brings a new life and flavor to autumn beer lists traditionally filled with Oktoberfests and pumpkin ales. The flavors of the hard work of summer and the celebration of autumn harvest are captured in Scythe & Sickle, creating a unique but traditional Ommegang farmhouse harvest ale.

“Scythe & Sickle is our foray into honoring the harvest season, taking the finest malts and blending them seamlessly into a rich amber ale,” says Brew Master Phil Leinhart. “Farming is about precision, timing and care, and this gently sweet ale is our testament to the craft and care of farming.”

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a lightly hazy medium orange with big rocky cream colored head, sea foam chunks down the glass. Smell: whole grain bread, pils-y, mildly fruity with some unripe banana (no thanks) and suggestion of nectarine (more please). Mild earthiness. Taste: milk caramel, grainy and mildly grassy and spicy, muddled pear/banana mush, peach skin, spicy and grainy in the finish. Enjoyable.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy straw colored body.
The aroma is honey, grain and spice. Pretty nice.
The taste has a complex and balanced profile. Moderate doses of grapefruit bitter and honey sweet.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.
