Pumpkin Ale Tasting

Tasting of my Pumpkin Ale

Beer pours a brilliant orange with a lacy white head, a gentle swirl quickly brings the head back to life. Tiny bubbles rise from the nucleation site at the bottom of the New Belgium globe glass.

Aroma really captures "pumpkin pie" if there was not the alcohol in the background it would pass as pumpkin pie itself.

The beer is very well balanced, not too malty and not too bitter. The finish is a mix of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Spices are present but not overpowering.

Overall the beer just turned out perfect. The alcohol may be a little too present and maybe I should cut back a little bit. That being said I designed it to compete with the wine that is the typical offering at my Thanksgiving so maybe that is just fine!
