BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anderson Valley Brewing Company

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.

Poured a brown body with one finger head and minimal lace and an aroma that has some sweet pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg notes to it but also a little graininess.
Not a bad pumpkin beer in the sense that you get a good amount of pumpkin spice and requisite sweetness that can be in pumpkin beers.
Just a little bland and watery and has a slightly off-putting dry finish, like there's too much hop or spice that builds up.

Aroma of cinnamon and clove, but not overpowering. Loads of cinnamon in the flavor. I even think there's a bit of cocoa in this. Not much in the way of pumpkin. Little kick of carbonation.

Pretty tasty. I could definitely see knocking back a few of these while watching football

Good representative Pumpkin Ale, nothing unusual or memorable but this beer has plenty of pumpkin and pumpkin spices and tastes pretty good.

Pours a dense mahogany brown with a lot of orange/golden light coming through. Small antique white head with average retention and small streaks of lacing on the pint glass.

Aroma is pumpkin spices and gets stronger as the beer warms. Flavor adds some actual pumpkin taste along with the cinnamon/nutmeg etc.

Mouthfeel is smooth and a little on the light side. If you are in the mood for a Pumpkin Ale, this one meets all requirements.
