A fresh pumpkin beer in the late spring??? Well, anything can (and usually does) happen at Al's.

Pours a muddy copper with a significant head that is higher than a finger. The nose has notes of pumpkin pie spice. The flavor notes include pumpkin and the traditional pie spices along with a sweetness - brown sugar, perhaps - on the finish.

The flavors in this offering seem to open up the deeper one gets into the glass. Tasty, even if it is out of season.

Draft offering at the source. Notes from over a month ago. The brew appears a clear burnt copper color with a white cap about a finger strong. Spotty strings and patches of lace stick to the glass.

The aromatics are a bit muted but includes some toffee and caramel malt sweetness with an earthy, mild vegetative aspect reminescent of pumpkin flesh. Some very subtle spicing is present enough for it to be felt but not easily identifiable.

The taste is sweet almost like a belgian candy sort of aspect instead of maltinesd with the flavor of pumpkin very evident with a soft earthy to veggy aspect. Again, a very mild pumpkin spice is felt in the aftertaste but isnt bold enough to pick apart or individually identify.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest of carbonation. It is smooth and easy drinking with a very subtle spice inclusion instead of a bold/overdone feel that I fault other examples for. As it warms up, it gets earthy like nutmeg more than anything. The alcohol is well integrated and never perceived and fruity or alcoholic. Nicely done.
