99. Sebago Brewing Local Harvest
I had been looking for this beer for some time and found it at The Good Beer Store in Fryeburg. I enjoy local beer and this one is not only local but also uses locally grown hops and barley. How can you go wrong with Maine grown ingredients and a local Maine brewery. Color is wonderful with a nice thin head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Lots of different flavors with some fruitiness and a bit of malt. Strong hop finish but not overwhelming. This is a very good beer and if you are fortunate to find a 6-pack somewhere buy it, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Color, taste
Cons: Hard to find
Alcohol Content: 6.2% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 36

Brewers Description: Our Fall seasonal Local Harvest Ale is brewed with hops and barley grown in Maine with the clear water of Sebago Lake. Local Harvest Ale is mahogany in color and has an intense bouquet of citrus, pine and lemongrass which comes from hopping this beer four ways: In the mash, in the kettle, steeped and dry hopped. After your first sip you will taste the fresh wet hops and the finish flavor of oily hops on your tongue. You will desire yet another sip. This auburn Autumn classic is balanced with the careful addition of chocolate and caramel malts to create this extremely popular local beer. Please support Maine agriculture and enjoy the harvest!
