BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.

Punkin Ale is named after the seriously off-centered southern Delaware extravaganza Punkin Chunkin (check out some of these Discovery Channel videos of Punkin Chunkin, you gotta see it to believe it!). In fact, Punkin Ale made its debut as it claimed first prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest. Yes, that was a full 6 months before we even opened our doors for business!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - tea, copper, dark burnt orange, carbonation bubbles to the top, white head, mild lacing

S - pumpkin pie and spices, dark sugars, some alcohol, hints or cinnamon

T - can definitely taste the pumpkin and spices, dark sugars, finishes malty

M - creamy, mild carbonation

O - the best pumpkin beer I have had to date, very rich flavors that blend excellently together and are greatly complimented by the smell and creaminess in the mouth feel.
