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.

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.

Mahogany color with creamy beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, pumpkin and spices, all in a very good balance. Taste is also balanced, not too sweet, not to spicy. I get pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and some bitterness on the finish. Body and carbonation are really smooth. This is one of the best pumpkin ales I had so far, mostly because it's really well balanced, smooth and not overspiced or overly sweet.
