Can. Murky brown amber with off white head. Smell is sweet and on thick side. Taste follows. Don't really get peaches or pecans. Just sweet bordering syrupy. Have tried this twice and couldn't finish either.

Got the beer because it was on sale at my local store. Not bad but I'd never buy it for its original price. Really not worth it.

A friend from work gave me a couple of these beers. I like several Spoetzl products, but was skeptical of this one. I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and tasty this beer was. This would be great anytime, not just the holidays.

Strong, malty aroma has a firm overtone of peach, sweet and tempting but not too sweet. Got a nutty hint, no doubt from the pecans. Pours a clear sienna with a fairly thick buff head. Peach dominates the flavor, but does not overwhelm the malty, nutty, earthy and hoppy notes - hop bitterness nicely balances the sweetness from the peaches. Texture has average body and plenty of lively fizz. Anytime is the season for good beer!

If you're a fan of peach and pecan you'll be very happy. I'm not so I didn't care for this.
