Give These Fall Beers a Try!
There is something about fall that is second to none. It’s the great combination of warm but not too warm, and cooler but not too cold weather. The colors on the trees before the leaves fall and the smells and sounds of a warm campfire make it great. It’s football and chili season and the beer that goes along with fall are some of the most diverse that breweries have to offer.
Entertainment and popular culture news website, Uproxx solicited the opinion of bartenders for the beers that they think taste like fall in a can (or bottle). Here is part of their selections that happen to reside in the Heidelberg portfolio.
Paulaner Salvator (all markets)
Salvator has been brewed for over 375 years, and always according to the original recipe, which has been continuously refined over the years. The finest Munich malt, rounded off by a light note of hops in the background, give the beer a caramel-colored head and chestnut brown body. A seductive flavor of chocolate gives a pleasing intensity on the palate. The father of all double bock beers is often imitated but never duplicated!
Rogue Hazelnut Brown (all markets)
From the hazelnut capital of the United States, this nutty twist on a European brown ale was originally crafted by Rogue Brewmaster John Maier’s good friend and avid home-brewer, Chris Studach. Hazelnut Brown Nectar offers a hazelnut aroma with rich nutty flavor and a smooth malty finish.
Goose Island Matilda (Cincinnati and Dayton)
Inspired by great Trappist ales, this complex Belgian Style Pale Ale is fermented with the wild yeast Brettanomyces. Matilda pours a golden sunrise color with dried fruit and clove aromas, a spicy yeast flavor, and a satisfying dry finish.
Avery White Rascal (Kentucky)
An authentic Belgian style white ale, this Rascal is unfiltered and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curaçao orange peel producing a refreshingly zesty classic ale.
New Holland Dragon’s Milk (Kentucky)
A stout with roasty malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones, all dancing in an oak bath.
