Captain Lawrence Pumpkin Ale 2012. 12oz bottle poured into a Captain Lawrence tulip glass.

Pours a clear red-orange amber. Thin head with good ring and thin film, lacing present but fades quickly.

Smells of spice and pumpin, a touch of sour wood and dry malt.

Tastes of spicy dry malt and fleshy gourd. A bit of hops bite on the finish with lingering cinnamon spice.

Overall a an enjoyable pumpkin beer that does not overdue the spices although a bit off balance with the dry malt. However I do like the dry malt contrast of this beer that makes it an approachable favorite of mine among this seasonal specialty.

This is one of the best pumpkin ales I've ever had. It's a great Fall beer that doesn't overpower your senses in terms of the pumpkin and the Ale is far more important to this brewer than the pumpkin taste to it. Great head to it and an overall solid taste.
