Fall Hornin reminds you that most holiday ales are based on a brown ale (although pumpkins seem to have a lot of variety, especially this year). This one really shows that in spades.

It opens brown. The head gives way to nice lacing. The aroma is nothing special - dirty water.

The taste is of a medium brown ale. Malty, slightly funky, and, especially in the initial sips, a tiny bit of spice. Further drinking doesn't add much. The spice goes away.

The aftertaste isn't bad - a bit of dark malt comes up, and a booziness. As I drink this I keep lowering the rating. It is a disappointing brew from a great brewer.

Dark amber with minimal head and some lacing.

Caramelized bready malt with noticeable pumpkin in the nose.

Not overly spiced and they make it work because of the good beer underneath it.

Can't wait to try the barrel aged version!
