Notes/Commercial Description:
The culmination of a long growing season, the autumn harvest comes once a year. We mark the end of summer with the release our seasonal brown ale, Harvest. Vermont maple syrup added during the brewing process yields a lasting sweetness on the palate that's guaranteed to warm your soul.

Raise a glass and enjoy the spirit of the season. Pairs well with wood-splitting, leaf-raking and pumpkin carving.

In celebration of the autumn harvest we’ve brewed this brown ale with locally harvested Vermont ingredients... a truly unique Taste of Vermont!

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft tumbler

A- Pretty deep brown, with some ruby highlights shining through the edges. Head is light brown and fairly dense. Retains at a quarter inch. A bit of lacing.

S- Roasty, and a little nutty.

T- Nutty flavor comes out more than in the smell. Still quite roasty, and just a little sweetness.

M- Medium-light body. Lighter than I was expecting. The finish has a roasty dryness. Fine carbonation.

O- I'd like just a little more body on this one, and the roast was a little too over the top. However, solid, and a great drink for a cool night.

One of the better fall beers! Smooth with a hint of maple. Easy drinking and a nice change from all of the pumpkin infused beers. If you like brown ale and like a hint of fall flavor. You can't go wrong with this brew!

DATE TASTED: September 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint...OCCASION: O's bust open a 10-3 lead in Game One of the ALDS... APPEARANCE: intimidatingly dark mahogany body; swiftly descending off-white head; flat, inconsistent up top... AROMA: thick, intense, sweet syrupy punch that encompasses a beautifully smoky embrace; hickory also mates with flattened hops to approximate a brown ale/porter mash-up ... PALATE: weighty, rather flat cola mouthfeel; teeth must withstand some energy, but the warmth sits idly on the tongue--heavy.....TASTE: sweet and malty with the syrup and smoke mitigating a rather uneventful flavor; a bit of biscuit late, but not what the aroma promises... OVERALL: Autumnal, yes--but the allure of its scent doesn't measure up when sipped; low alcohol content makes it sessionable--with toffee and gritty malts, good for (a couple of) night caps....
