Harvest Ale

Thanks to Vancer as part of the CEO/Old Farts BIF. 12 oz bottle.
This is a tricky one. From the name I was expecting some kind of Fest/Autumn/spiced brew. In the bottle I got what amounted to an American IPA.
Good color, decent head and some retention amongst the lace. A lot of bitterness for an ESB. Some hint of the classic English malts, but these are eclipsed by a lot of stinging bitterness.
OK, but not really my favorite combination of flavors and certanly not true to my interpretation of the style.
Not bad, but a bit confused by the beer as a whole.
