Southern Tier Harvest

Top 10 Fall Beers 2014

Southern Tier Harvest Ale, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Fall Beers

EXTRA SPECIAL BITTER (ESB)
Southern Tier "Harvest"


Although brewed with English hops and billed as an English-style Extra Special Bitter, this ale out of Lakewood, New York, shouts out its American pedigree through its not-so-subtle hop dominance. It pours a fall-themed orange color with aromas of hoppy grapefruit, resinous pine and caramel, with enough of a solid malt backbone coming through to allow the hops to melt into the malt. While Harvest Ale may be bigger than most ESBs, it is still an easy-drinking session beer, with an added bonus of hop notes lingering well after the sip.

Price: $9.49 for six-pack of 12 oz. bottles
