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!

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....

Nice deep brown color. Head is decent with minimal lacing. Aroma is light with some maple and malt sweetness coming through to tingle the nose. Interestingly enough, the malt sweetness and maple are not too overpowering like I would have expected. Nice balance with an ever so slight bitterness back. Sweet but not too sweet. Do I get a few hints of brown sugar, coffee?

Pours a clear and deep ruby-tinted brown. There a short-lived fizzy white head that still manages to leave some lacing. The aroma is malt-oriented, with some nice light dark fruit, a nice nutty quality. The taste is great, especially for a low ABV beer. It has a robust malt profile, with the nutty quality dominating, supported by some nice roasted undertones and a good earthy hops quality. The body has a nice weight a little carbonation. A great fall session ale.

soapy head dissipates quickly. deep amber-brown color. a very nice looking brown ale. smells of chocolate and roasted malt typical of a traditional brown. very balanced, some floral hop to go along with the roasted malt, coffee, choc notes. light-med bodied. easy drinking. perfect campfire beer for autumn.

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

Appearance: Pours a clear mahogany capped with a modest head that leaves some streaky lacing

Smell: Toasted brown bread, hazelnuts and a touch of maple

Taste: Toasted brown bread with overripe banana; a touch of maple adds sweetness to the mid-palate; nutskin bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More interesting than I thought it would be, I find this to be a decent presentation of what is usually a boring style
