BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sebago Brewing Company
United States
sebagobrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Fall seasonal Local Harvest Ale is brewed with hops and barley grown in Maine with the clear water of Sebago Lake. Local Harvest Ale is mahogany in color and has an intense bouquet of citrus, pine and lemongrass which comes from hopping this beer four ways: In the mash, in the kettle, steeped and dry hopped. After your first sip you will taste the fresh wet hops and the finish flavor of oily hops on your tongue. You will desire yet another sip. This auburn Autumn classic is balanced with the careful addition of chocolate and caramel malts to create this extremely popular local beer. Please support Maine agriculture and enjoy the harvest!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Libby craft glass.

Appearance: Pours a fairly deep amber color with a one-and-a-half finger cream head.

Aroma: Smells of malt and biscuit, and some floral, grassy hops.

Taste: Pretty hoppy for a standard pale ale. Otherwise a pretty familiar, malt-forward ale.

Mouthfeel: Average depth. Good for all seasons.

Overall: I love the concept of this beer, which is all local ingredients. The beer itself is a decent, traditional pale ale, with maybe a tiny bit of bonus hop bite.

12oz.

A: Pours a murky copper with an off-white head.

S: Bitterish piney hops, british, copper malt, caramel.

T: Leafy, mild molasses, bready, light orange flavor.

M: Medium-bodied with moderate carb.

O: A meh APA that is closer to an English bitter than anything American.

Bright copper color with little carbonation
Mild, sweet malty smell
Touch of citrus taste, sweetness and strong hoppy finish
Mouthfeel is medium
Overall not a bad brew, best thing about is its use of local ingredients. Will enjoy the four-pack, but probably not buy again

Bottle > Sensory Pils

A - Cloudy amber color with a finger of off white head, but has some nice lacing.
S - You definitely get the fresh hop aroma, nice citrus grassy pine hop scents. Also you get a caramel malt base.
T - Grapefruit, lemon candy, caramel and bready malts, some earthy tones on the end. Finishes with some dry bitterness.
M - A tad bit too dry.
O - So far its the only thing I had from Sebago that I enjoyed.
