After a suggested trip to a most amazing liquor store Friar Tuck’s in Peoria, Illinois I was fortunate to find one more treat before heading back to Colorado. The Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale was a beer that sounded perfect for the season and the corn fields I would be drinking it in. The Scarecrow is a light tasting and feeling beer that goes down smooth. The pour comes to a golden body with a thin white head. This tasty drink is loaded with zesty and sweet fruits combined with a touch caramel that really makes for a nice tone that hits from front to finish on the taste. The feel is crisp and clean on the mouth. As for the carbonation the Scarecrow is a bit light on the feel of the tongue which fits this beer style nicely. With an ABV of 4.70% it’s not difficult to knock back a few of these in one sitting.
When I first saw this beer I thought I was finding a seasonal treat that was mixed in an area with a ton of pumpkin brews. Turns out this not so scary scarecrow can be found year round, so you don’t have to rush out and get it now. But if you do, you won’t be disappointed.
