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.

Not a huge fan of the style, but better than many pumpkin seasonals I've had.

Copper with ruby tones and an off white head that fades to a small ring and doesn't leave much lacing, if any. A bit flat looking, but I experience this with the style. Caramel, graham crusty malt, gord meat,cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and do I detect a hint of cream?! Starts off with a nice vegetal gord meat flavor that is wrapped in caramel and graham flavors. The spice weaves in early bringing a perfect level of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg spiciness. Lower carbonation and the body feels slightly thin. Overall it's a great pumpkin ale. It's top two for me next to Pumking.
