Nice winter option. Good alternative to the typical dark Winter Warmers.

Had this on draft. Fruity aroma. Smooth and very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Although this is a seasonal I could drink it in the summer.

Medium Amber, fragrant head fades quickly to a small swirl, smell of peach and primary taste of pecan over a medium sweet malt base. A nice holiday beer!

Brownish-copper with golden edges. The peaches come through in the nose and flavor profile too. The finish was tart and dry and was accompanied by an odd aftertaste.
