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.

Look: Poured into a snifter because my tulips are dirty. Reddish amber in color. Poured with a 1-2 finger head which was retained for sometime and never really quite goes away completely.

Smell: Butterscotch and candy. Yes. I'm having a hard time getting pumpkin in the aroma. Butterscotch is very very strong to my nose. Maybe I'm losing my mind.

Taste: Again, butterscotch, with cinnamon and nutmeg. I'm getting just a slight touch of pumpkin at the end. But to me, pumpkin is not a dominate flavor in this ale.

Feel: Medium bodied, easy to drink. Carbonation is on my preferable levels, which is medium.

Overall: I really like this beer. I would NOT think this is a pumpkin ale if blind testing this beer. So maybe It's hitting it's mark as far as being a pumpkin ale, but it is good regardless. I was really looking forward to this beer, as Spring House is one of my favorites, but it's not at all what I was expecting.
