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.

Been holding on to this one for a little bit. Figured I may as well get to it.

Nice looking, but minimal head. The flavor is nice. Not sure if several months have toned it down a bit. If so, I suggest this for all pumpkin ales. It's a nice firm accent, but an accent all the same. Nice level of spices; again, an accent. A bit of a floral thing that I could use less of. But overall, it's a nice one. Been quite some time since I've had a pumpkin beer. Which is mainly due to fear of all the crappy ones out there.
