Beer: Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale
Brewery: Starr Hilll Brewery
State of Origin: Virginia
Style: Brown Ale
Though it’s much too warm outside for October, it’s time to get into the spirit of autumn. I decided that, while I do enjoy many pumpkin-flavored foods, beer is not one of them. Thankfully, while it may seem like it, pumpkin beer is not the only fall “themed” beer. Starr Hill’s Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale is a sweet (literally) alternative. Slightly bitter, but mostly sweet, a pleasant maple-flavored beer of a beautiful dark reddish color. Nice to sip on slowly, but goes down relatively smoothly. I had it with a piece of cheesecake, but it’s sweet enough on its own.
