This beer, JW Lee’s Harvest Ale 2007, a fully fermented old ale, was provided to me by Aleksey’s Imports for reviewing purposes.  I’ve already previously reviewed a version of this that had been aged in Lagavulin Whisky casks.  I’ve seen this called a barleywine on some websites, but I think it’s more appropriately referred to as an old ale, as was mentioned on the bottle.

The Pour
There was less than a finger of head to speak of on the pour, which did not surprise me, given the nature of the beer.  The very light tan head dissipated somewhat quickly.   This old ale pours to an orange-tinged brown color with a great deal of sediment floating around in the bottle.  I know some people leave a little of the beer in the bottle, hoping to hold back that sediment, but if it’s there, I like to see it and experience it.  More: Beer Review: JW Lee’s Harvest Ale
