Pumpkin Ale |  7.10% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our pumpkin ale is brewed with generous amounts of real pumpkin blended into the mash. The subtle fresh pumpkin flavor is enhanced by the addition of a touch of traditional autumn spices and sweet dough, thus creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, a bold malt center and a crisp finish. We are proud to offer you a balanced and delectable fall treat. Suitable for zombies.

Bomber > Tulip

A - Cloudy amber with some floating yeast two fingers of thick creamy khaki head, little lacing
S - Candied sweet potato, pumpkin, sweet caramel malt, smells very sugary.
T - Taste isnt as sweet as the aroma leads you to believe, but its still on the sugary side. Lots of sweet pumpkin pie flavor, no pie crust flavors though, a little bit of vanilla comes through.
M - Kinda creamy but a little thin too.
O - Not the usual pumpkin beer I'm used to, very fresh and sweet pumkin flavor. Reminds me of sweet potato casarole a lot for some reason.

22oz. bomber poured into a tulip glass.

A- a very slightly hazy amber with a lovely off white head that coates rather than really sticks. Almost looks like an IPA, but the head isn't sticky like an IPA.

S- BIG vanilla and graham cracker. Not much else on the nose.

T- wowsers, it's just too sweet. Cloyingly so. The sweetness/vanilla taste artificial to a point where they almost taste like bubble gum on the front of the sip. The spices are there, but overrun by the doughy, vanilla sweetness. Way out of balance.

M- fine for the style, medium, slightly slick from the pumpkin and medium carbonation

O- a swing and a miss. The sweetness overrides any essence of pumpkin or spice.
