BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
California, United States

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.
