Fall colors, Halloween candy, and the temperature finally backs off a little. What isn’t great about October?
I was just perusing Total Wine last night, creating a mixed 6er, when I turned the corner and saw a mountain of blue and white checkered 12-packs. I immediately put back away all the beers I just spent the last fifteen or twenty minutes picking out, and snapped one up.
I wait for this beer all year. It has such a smooth mouthfeel, so it’s a pretty easy drink. The brew has a toasty, sweet malt flavor with just a little bit of a bitter finish; almost reminiscent of a red ale. It isn’t so distinct and overwhelming that it would be hard to drink often. Which is good because I like to keep a cool 12 pack of bottles in the fridge all through the fall.
It’s a great beer, go try it.
