Notes/Commercial Description:
Legend has it that when a pumpkin comes into the world it is possessed by either a good or an evil spirit. Ours got all the good baby! Bursting with real pumpkin flavor and yummy pumpkin spices including Ceylon cinnamon, Jamaican all-spice, Zanzibar cloves and nutmeg, Good Gourd is a celebration of Fall and that spookiest of holidays, Halloween. Pair Good Gourd with pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie and costume parties.

Appearance is orange-amber color with small white fluffy cap.

Aromas of pumpkin fruit and spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very nice aroma without being overly spiced.

The flavor suggests pumpkin pie. Semi-sweet pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and caramel malt. Nice balance of these flavors without being overly spicy, sweet or artificial.

Medium body with low carbonation.

This is one of the more enjoyable pumpkin ales I have had to date. I dont usually pursue pumpkin beers, but I would drink a pint of this given the right seasonal timing.

Thanks to digita7693 for bringing a growler up to Jax the same day for tasting fresh from the Tap Room. ~9/2010

Serving type: growler
