BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
California, United States
avbc.com

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.

From bottle at home. Hazy chestnut look with a nice beige creamy head. Not much aroma but I'd say mace plays a big part. Not much pumpkin flavor (but who does) & decidedly adult application of sweet & spice applications. The best feature is the solid & smooth mouth-feel.

This should be an autumn beer so very little pumpkin on the nose and mouth good beer and would rate better if they did not call this a pumpkin

Where is the pumpkin? This beer lacks what many so-called "pumpkin ales" lack: actual pumpkin. It's not a bad beer, but it tastes like a red ale with pumpkin spice, not a pumpkin ale. The body is thin with none of the sweet creaminess of pumpkin I like in a good pumpkin ale. The spices are also very one-note. Not a bad beer by itself; it just doesn't live up to its name.

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.

Nice, rich and velvety pumpkin ale from this brewery. Aroma and taste remind me of fresh baked pumpkin squares that my wife makes. Perfect weight and silky smooth. A real treat.
