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.

22oz bomber. Pours deep amber orange. 1 finger of head. Dissipates quickly. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, sugar..Tastes like a good pumpkin pie. Less sweet than alewerks but still very good and smooth. Easy to drink. Same flavors in the mouth and on the way down. Very solid pumpkin beer. Perfect for football season and thanksgiving.

Appearance - The beer was a golden yellow color with a bubbly white head.

Smell - Unlike many pumpkin ales, the cinnamon does not viciously attack the sense of smell. Cinnamon and nutmeg are present, but the aroma is more noted for a generalized sweetness.

Taste - This is such a well balanced pumpkin ale. The cinnamon and nutmeg are balanced with an earthy pumpkin. Notes of smooth vanilla are also present. In the aftertaste, the cinnamon comes more to the front and lingers.

Mouthfeel - The vanilla gives the impression of a smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation is modest.

Overall - I might have a new favorite pumpkin ale.
