Harvest Gold Pale Ale

Harvest Gold Pale Ale is built by the good people at the Barley Days Brewery in Picton, Ontario. It comes in 341mL bottles emblazoned with an oil painting of a team of horses hauling a plow. HGPA clocks in at 4.8% alcohol. It pours a faintly cloudy brass colour, is fairly carbonated, an is topped by a cloud of white head.
Harvest Gold has an interesting aroma that blends hops, toffee warmth, and a bit of nuttiness. Just a hint of sweetness is nearly totally engulfed in hop bitterness and a dose of nuttiness. Despite the low alcohol content, there is lots of flavour, making this a genuinely sessionable pale ale.  However, I wouldn't complain of it was a touch more potent.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
