Notes / Commercial Description:
Harmon Harvest is an imperial red/amber brewed with an extra helping of Munich malt to give it a rich, deep amber color and complex malt body. Other malts are melanoidin, dextrin, 15L, 45L and 120L crystal malts and finished off with a small addition of chocolate malt. Hops are centennials, liberty and fuggle. We have also added a touch of pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and whole cinnamon sticks to round off the finish.

Good but lacks sweetness. Would've made it more enjoyable.

They call this "Fall Ball Imperial Harvest Ale." And yes, it is spiced with pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, plus some pumpkin. Alcohol content is listed at 8.1% with 51 IBUs. Hops are Centennial, Liberty, and Fuggles.

Dark brown in the pint shaker. On the hazy side. This is the really BIG pumpkin beer. Sweet, totally spiced up, and hoppy to boot. Big aroma of cinnamon. The pumpkin is quite rich and mellow along with all the malt.

The hops are surprising with a bitter finish and some leafer madness. Tastes quite strong. That sweet and bitter combo is not my favorite, but it's quite a mouthful. On tap at the brewpub in downtown Tacoma.

A: Poured a deep copperish/brown color with a small dirty white cap which fades fast leaving a small tannish ring around the rim

S: A little bit of cinnamon, some faint floral and pine notes

T: Immediate sweetness which transitions into a sticky, full and sweet taste with light cinnamon, floral and light pine notes are very undercover. Harvest fruits of pumpkins are noticable. The finish is full, light booze tinge with a solid sweetness and rather dry but sticky sweet finsih with a subtle and lingering bitter finish

M: Full bodied, sweet, lots of sweetness really stick to the palate here.

O: Not a fan of late harvet style beers or Ambers but this beer was pretty darn good. Not only by taste but balance.
