Pioneer Brewing Co Harvest Ale Session Pale Ale

Pioneer Brewing

From a brewery that focuses on approachability and drinkability in its beers, one might expect a mid-strength to be the mildest of the range. But this Harvest Ale punches above its weight, beginning with the deep orange colour of an apricot or glowing ember rather than a pale yellow.

It’s light and refreshing – as you want in a mid-strength – but is still generous in flavour, from when it touches your lips through to the aftertaste. The hops and yeast come together to offer up overripe pineapple, but somehow with a dryness rather than the sickly sweetness that flavour suggests. In time, a grainy malt flavour settles in, like hunkering down like me with a good book and a coffee on a winter’s day.

Except this is beer not coffee and it's better for summer than winter so stop getting confused by this simile. Because at the end of the day, it’s not that complicated. This is still a mid-strength designed to go down well. Just drink the damn thing.
