Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
With a brilliant, deep copper hue and creamy beige-colored head, our Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale has inviting aromas of caramelized malt and baking bread with highlights of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and seasonal spices. The pleasantly creamy mouthfeel and silky body embrace the sweet caramel flavors and tang of spices (with just hint of hops) that ends in a smooth, round finish.

Bought a 6-pack of 12-oz. cans at Whole Foods in Arlington, VA.

Look: Pours a dark amber with a generous, fluffy off-white head.

Smell: Very pumpkin-forward. Malty.

Taste: Pretty strong on the pumpkin pie flavors, but not quite too strong. Nicely balanced with the maltiness and hint of hoppiness. Clean finish. Really good!

Feel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Awesome pumpkin beer, probably in my top 3.

Exceptional pumpkin ale with a balanced profile and not too overwhelming pumpkin pie flavor. The aftertaste brings home the sweetness of the pumpkin, and solidifies this as a well-rounded seasonal ale. The aroma was very subtle, though, with not much to offer. Once again, Anderson Valley does it right.

Wasn't expecting a lot as this was the first Pumpkin Ale I'd seen from Anderson Valley but I was very pleasantly surprised with one of the better Pumpkin Ales this season. Will recommend this one to friends as it was smooth with lots of mild fall flavors while still presenting a nice pumpkin flavor. Excellent.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color, with some reddish highlights and three quarters of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, all spice, vanilla, brown sugar, pumpkin) nicely blended with some malt and subtle hops aromas.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. Tons of spice, (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, all spice, vanilla, brown sugar), followed by pumpkin, malt and finished with some beautifully balanced hops. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium with some nice carbonation. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is just a hint of alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow! This is an exceptional, exceptional pumpkin beer!! I love the huge amounts of spice, which is beautifully balanced with the pumpkin, sweetness, malt and hops. I’m definitely getting some more of this, and it’s definitely being added to my yearly pumpkin rotation! It’s absolutely one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had!
