Orange in color, O’Brien’s Harvest Ale has a cloudy body and a nose that is earthy, lightly spiced, piney, and a little fruity. There is very little foam on this beer, but it does manage to leave some lacing as you drink.
O’Brien’s Harvest Ale offers a taste that combines caramel malt, bread, citrus, grass, pine, biscuits, and some toffee. The flavor is complex and you may find yourself mulling over what you taste or think you might taste. It’s a good beer to share with a friend, compare notes, and find what each of you can detect.
This ale is an interesting one overall, but it’s also not the cleanest beer you will ever try. It is murky and does have some yeast sediment present, so don’t open a bottle expecting to taste something clear and clean. Qualities like these do not matter to me, but I know that some consumers like their beers clean and crisp. This beer is neither, but it is still good in its own way.
Seattle is home to some great breweries and Hales Ales O’Brien’s Harvest Ale is certainly a beer you should try. The complexity continues to reward you long after the first sip and it remains tasty and interesting all the way to the final drink.

12oz : tulip
Pours a clear, dark amber/brown color with a thick, light beige head and nice lacing.
Citrus, and piney hop notes are the dominant feature in both the aroma and taste. Tasty malt backbone.
Medium bodied, well hopped and well balanced ale. Noting particularly memorable about this one, but I still quite enjoyed it.
