Ontario Craft Beer, As Advertised – Beer 7

Muskoka Harvest Ale (7%) Strong Ale

Described by the brewery as a dry-hopped malt forward seasonal commemorating the end of the growing season. Harvest Ale pours a hazy dark amber colour with lots and lots of off-white airy head. A hoppy nose giving citrus and piney notes. As you drink the caramel malt character emerges but not as much as I expected the hops take over flavour-wise making the ale earthy, grassy and slightly bitter. There is also an herbal almost spicy quality to this beer. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and some carbonation. This ale ends with a primarily bitter finish.

Overall not really my ‘cup of tea’ but interesting nonetheless and sure to please those who love a hop heavy ale.
