Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

I've tried a few pumpkin ales and this is by far the best one I've had. Pours a deep dark brown. This one actually smells and tastes like you wish a pumpkin beer would. Medium bodied. At 8%, a little pricier than some, but well worth the extra cost.

Using the Begnel formula, the Alcohol Score is 12 oz. x 8.0% = 96, or 1.9 Bud Lights.

An okay pumpkin ale with a good aroma but an average taste. But it does come with a nice abv of 8% making it a little stronger than some of the other ones.

This was really good the first time I tried it, but the second six pack I bought tasted overly sweet with hints of bubble gum that kind of ruined it for me.

I'm not big on pumpkin ales, but this one hits just the right note of subtle spice and clean hops. Perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.

My wife's favorite pumpkin beer, she didn't used to be a fan of pumpkin beers until this one. Not too sweet or wimpy. Good choice for sure
