Harvester is our interpretation of the classic German Marzen style. Magnum and Palisade highlight a creative hop blend. The result is a deep amber color and a hearty flavor that salutes the old world taste of the season.

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with an off-white creamy topping. Some stringy lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades.

The smell includes notes of caramel and toffee malt with minerals and almost a perfume sort of alcohol inclusion.

The taste too includes minerals and is carbonic with a bit of perfume alcohol. Some herbal hops, slightly citrus feel overtop toffee, caramel and buttery diacetyl into the finish.

This is medium to light bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp but overall just ok.

Pours a rich reddish brown with a thin white head.

The smell is earthy, malty, caramel.

The taste is caramel and earthy. Tastes good but not very complex.

The feel is light with medium carbonation.

Overall drinkable but far from the best marzen out there.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear copper with a finger of off-white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Caramel, crystal, and Munich malt aromas on the nose with some burnt toffee and sweet floral hop notes.

T: Similar malt profile here with a hearty bread flavor dominating. There are also notes of burnt sugar, caramel, and piney hops. The finish is a little more bitter than usual for the style, but not overwhelming.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer isn't quite as crisp as I'd like, but avoids being watery.

O: A unique and solid interpretation of the style. It's definitely a lot hoppier than most Marzens, but it works well.
