This classic American Octoberfest beer remains consistent year after year, with a rich malt core that's spiced by earthy clove, cinnamon stick and whole hop accents. It pours a brilliant amber color, with a substantial cream--colored head that lingers. Scents of fresh-baked bread and whole roasted peanut add depth to the bouquet, while hints of stone-fruit preserve and orange oil harmonize effortlessly with the malt--dominant palate. Balanced and refreshing, this is surely one to enjoy throughout the entire season, and even with a slice of pumpkin pie.
