3.9/5 rDev +5.1%
Appearance: 1/4 inch head, brown in color, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell:toasted malt, and husk
Taste: toasted malt, husk, earth, and sweet chocolate
Mouthfeel: sweet with earthy bitterness, moderate carbonation, medium bodied
Overall:A good sessionable amber. Not the most complex brew, but one a friend and I put away a couple growlers down easily. I would get this again. One of my favorites from the brewery.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a light orangey brown. Fair amount of carbonation rising from the bottom, with a very thin white head that clung to the sides a bit. Aroma was malty, with a dash of hops. Slightly sweet, with a hint of spicy, reminded me a bit of a honey brown bread. Felt great in the mouth. Nicely carbonated, coated well. Nicely drinkable. Well flavored and went down well.

Growler obtained in trade with corey0212. Thanks for the opportunity.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" tan head over the clear amber brew. This is exactly the shade I picture when I think of "ant in fossilized sap". Thick head fades gradually, with ample lacing. Aroma is balanced, with nutty notes. Taste has grain husks upfront, a light citrus character int he middle, and a clean close. Mouthfeel is light and soft over the tongue, with very easy drinkability. An ale that lets you come back for more when you want.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a plastic pint cup, the beer is a light, nutty tan coloring with a filmy white surface coating. Nose of roasted grains, sweet toffee, and hints of smoke. Flavors are toffee sweet, but light, with a transition into roasty and charred blend at the end of the palate. Smooth, light bodied, with a subtle, sweet aftertaste. Clean, crisp finish. Easy to drink, but there are better versions of the style.

A thank you to my people that brought this back from vacation at the Cape
A light pleasant nose of nutty grain and citrus floated over the off-white creamy mostly lasting head that laced the glass. Bright and amber with medium body. Starts out lightly sweet malty with a slight tart in the middle. Light bitterness in the finish that has average duration. In between watery and creamy texture makes it easy drinking. All this and a soft carbonation lends this beer to a session status. ABV not stated but would appreciate it higher to take it out of the Alt range into Harvest. I liked it.

Pours a clean amber in my DeKonnick glass. Has a musty, cereal smell. Grainy, even. The taste is nutty, with a mild noble hop aftertaste. Malt-forward and clean. Mouthfeel is silky soft, incredibly drinkable. It has a very "Oktoberfest" flavor which isn't my favorite but really excels with mouthfeel. I could drink this all night long.
This is a sharp beer which I will definitely seek out in the future!

Poured from a growler obtained by my parents from the Brewery. Served in a pint glass
A: Poured a light amber with a one finger head. Carb remained constant and hugged the sides of the glass. Decent lacing.
S: Hint of pine, lots of nuts.
T: Very light - very soft hop finish. Taste is mainly nutty.. Very appropriately titled as a harvest. Just not a helluva lot going on.
M: Fairly light - whisks through the mouth
D: Very easy to drink - a light beer with some flavor. Certainly could be a session beer.
Overall - was solid but just wasn't memorable. A beer that won't offend or necessarilly disappoint.

500ml swing-top from Greg (Reagan1984). Served in an Alchemist pint glass.
A - Not much of a pop upon opening, but fears are quickly dispelled by a massive off-white foam that settles to a creamy, thick cap and numerous splotches of lace. Transparent bronze, with big bubble visibly rising upward.
S - While this is labeled an Altbier owing to the use of ale yeast, this is very much in the vein of an Oktoberfest. Toasted grains, a bit of nuttiness, and some lemony and earthy noble hopping. There's a bit of fruitiness that might be attributable to the yeast, but it's quite subtle.
T - The taste is less complex; mostly yeasty bread malt character with a kiss of toffee sweetness, and a surprisingly potent hop bitterness late. Earthy hop character grows over time but doesn't get fatiguing until near the end of the bottle.
M - Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Medium-light body, with a chewy, bready texture. Carbonation is on the lower side of moderate.
D - Crushable brew that is absolutely suited to a beer garden on a cool autumn evening. I wish the taste had the depth of the aroma, though. I was a bit apprehensive about the 500ml serving size as I didn't want to drink a ton on Sunday night, but I found this to be a spot-on serving size for this sort of beer.

Thanks to my Father-In-Law (and new BA member) for bringing a growler of this to our Thanksiving celebration. I'm not sure about the style listing here. The neck flyer on the growler lists this as a "German Style Ale similar to an Octoberfest." I realize Marzen is a lager, so that doesn't work, but I'm still not sure this is correct. Anyway...
A fairly straight brown/amber colored beer is topped with a finger of fluffy white head. Some spotty light lacing left behind.
Aroma was of fresh baked bread. Lots of toasted malt notes and a grain like scent.
The front of the flavor here is wonderful. Very bready with just the right amount of hop bitterness and a touch of light grapefruit peel. Finishes with a very toasty bread flavor then falls off a bit at the end. Very enjoyable flavor.
This is the one area where you could almost say I was disappointed. While I really enjoyed this, I thought the body was a touch thin.
A very drinkable beverage and one that I really enjoyed drinking. This is a nice refreshing beer and would be a great candidate as a gateway beer when introducing friends to quality craft beer. Overall another nice beer from the folks at Cape Cod Beer.
