Cape Cod Beer Harvest Ale

Cape Cod Beer
Hyannis, MA

Grade: B
ABV: 5%
Style: German Ale
Serve in: Pint glass, lager glass

This is one of my favorite offerings from my hometown brewery. Very fresh looking, pouring a brown/tawny color with a clinging white head and a good amount of lacing.

The aroma is clean malts, grainy and nutty, and reminds me of a loaf of freshly baked bread. This wholesome breadiness carries over into the taste, plus some very light citrus notes. It finishes toasty and with a mild hop bitterness. This is a very simple, yet enjoyable beer. It coats your mouth and has a perfect level of carbonation, though can feel a bit thin.

Harvest Ale’s refreshing nature and drinkability make it almost like a session beer. I can definitely see using it as an accessible start for those non-craft beer drinking dinks. Cheers, Cape Cod.
