Raise a glass and enjoy the spirit of the season. Pairs well with wood-splitting, leaf-raking and pumpkin carving.

Into a pint glass:

A: dark amber/brown body that leaves a large full two finger white head that lasts a good minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing is around the sides of the glass.

S: great combination of brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup and a short roasty nutty aroma.

T: all of the previously mentioned ingredients combined perfectly.

M: medium and leaves a slight stickiness, not bad, nutty aftertaste and finish

O: its just as I remembered it and makes me glad I got some this year. This is very drinkable, in fact, I'll go out on a limb and say this is probably one of most drinkable browns on the market.

A - Brown pour, with a tan foam and mild lacing. Some carbonation present.

S - Scent of maple and english malt. Slight roasty smell.

T - Flavors of a typical brown. Some early sweetness of maple abd almonds. Has a thick malty finish.

M - Sessionable fall seasonal that seems to go good with just about anything. Feels pretty light, but not thin.

O - Part of the sampler pack. The price on this is great. I find this a slight downgrade from a Sam Adams, but a solid beer from a decent brewery.

A: Harvest pours a dark amber color with a good 1 1/2 inch creamy, tan colored head.

S: Nice nutty aroma at first, then I get some maple, a little brown sugar and some coffee.

T: A coffee bite comes at me upon my first sip. The taste follows through with caramel, some nutty flavors and a bit of brown sugar. The flavor ends off with molasses and maple.

M: Creamy and smooth, well balanced with an assortment of different flavors coming through.

O: A nice version of the style, had all the flavors that I was anticipating. The coffee bite was a nice surprise, but was hoping for a bit more thickness in the taste. Seems a little watered down. But overall, a pretty good Brown Ale!

Poured into a pint glass. The color is dark amber/brown. There is a short lived head that is light tan.

The aroma has nice brown sugar and molasses with some vegetable hop aroma as well. Some bread crust is noted also. This is very welcoming for a brown ale.

The taste starts out with a mild malt/grassy hop blend. The start is about an even balance, this turns into a nice caramelly/bread dough finish that hints at sweetness while still being dry.

This is light to medium bodied. The carbonation is soft. I like this one. It's nothing special, but I'm apt to buy it again as it is a solid brown ale from a solid brewery at a reasonable price.
