Notes/Commercial Description:
Muskoka Harvest Ale was our brewery’s pioneering venture into our limited run series of beers. Now in its fourth year, our Harvest Ale marks the end of the growing season and the process of gathering mature crops from the fields.

Dry hopped and brewed using a selection of premium local ingredients, this ale has a rich malt backbone and a subtle grassy character reminiscent of the freshly cut harvest. It’s our way of celebrating another prosperous growing season. And we’re proud to share it with you.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

served from bottle into pint glass - 2013 vintage

A - slightly hazy copper/auburn, two fingers tan head that has great retention and slowly turns into a nice rocky covering to the beer, leaves amazing amount of lacing on the glass with amazing rings all the way down, passes medium amount of light

S - heavy on the caramel malts, toffee, biscuits. earthy and piny, grassy hops off the pour which make way to some more orchard fruit type of smells as it warms, citrus, pineapple, mango

T/M - malts, bread, caramel, toast, brown sugar,fruity hops, very sweet when it hits then tongue then the bitterness quickly takes over and dominates, herbal and piny hops linger in the mouth, medium mouthfeel, lowish carbonation, creamy, sticky, slightly astringent (as the hops take over from the sweetness of the malts), spicy bitterness, slightly dry finish

o - a wonderfully crafted beer! i've had quite a few of these over the past couple months and since this was my last bottle i decided to give it a review. all i can say is i can't wait til next year to get some more! so much happening in the complexity of this beer but doesn't seem crowded. flavours seemed to be popping up with each sip. would recommend and buy again!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A slightly cloudy dark amber colour with a foamy cream-coloured head. Aroma of malt, spice and pine. Sweet and malty, with notes of pine hops, orange peel and a mild spiceyness. Highly carbonated and medium-bodied. Complexity and balanced mainly toward malts but still finishes with a nice dry hoppyness.
