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.

I had this bottle at the cove, enjoyed chilled in a pint glass

The color is deep amber with mild haze with thick pale tan cap with rocky appearance. The smell is a bit spiced and some floral/fruity esters accompany the spice and malt smell. The feel is strong but pretty well balanced and not overly spiced for the style.

The taste is good, pretty spicy with dry effect of cinnamon, not very sweet flavor wise and there is a subtle chalkiness I don't understand that sort of detracts from the toasted malt flavor. Overall this is a decent pumpkin, perhaps I should try the draft version to compare but I would say it is worth a try if you enjoy pumpkin beers.

Aroma smells of cinnamon and spice, with a hint of pumpkin. Dark amber/orange color with nice foam. Average mouthfeel for this style, but the sweet flavors rule right from the get-go.

Great, sweet flavor that reminds me of sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving day. Tons of cinnamon and nutmeg spice, with sweet pumpkin/yam flavors. Really a delicious dessert beer.

First off, Fall is my absolute favorite time of year which means there are so many different beers to try. For me, I stuck with the pumpkin brews. In my quest for the best pumpkin beer, I have tried over ten different tasty beers. NOTHING tops Braaaiins! There is some sort of vanilla hint and a perfectly smooth pumpkin taste. NOTHING compares. Grab one before it's too late!
