Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

A - Almost copper, zero head, zero lacing, carbonation creates movement in surface of brew throughout entirety.

S - Real nice. love the spices. Cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and obviously pumpkin.

T - Initially spices blend together very nicely and come together for a sweet (but not overly sweet) taste. finish is slight acidic, very low hops and barely a touch of booze. 8ABVs are eliminated.

M - Nice and frothy, full and thick, high viscosity and the spices linger. great combo.

O - This has to be a pumpkin brew all can enjoy. Flavors and spices and potent but mellow. Nothing dramatic with any one flavor. It is certainly a pleasure to enjoy this pumpkin brew in March.
