It’s that time again, folks! I’ve been slaving away going from pub to pub in search of the Craft Beer of the Month. This month’s honor goes to Granite City’s Falling Leaf. While this tasty harvest ale was technically tapped in October, I didn’t taste it until November.
Falling Leaf is a subtle dark amber that makes a big impression. It hits the tongue with a smooth introduction and leaves a lasting impression of seasonal spices and caramel. To say that I enjoyed this simple yet charming brew would be an understatement. Sometimes seasonal ales are too laden with spices or too thick to enjoy more than one glass, but Falling Leaf was brewed for the “more-than-one-glass” drinker in mind. It’s the perfect middle ground of light and dark, and if you get the opportunity to try this beer, seize it. Be sure to let me know if you too enjoyed Falling Leaf.
