Fall is a popular time for pumpkin ale so I’ve been trying what I can found. Recently I tried Black Creek Brewery’s pumpkin ale. I found it very malty and the taste of pumpkin and spices were pretty faint. It definitely smelled stronger than it tasted.
Now that Autumn is approaching, pumpkin things are hitting the shelves again. I found this gigantic bottle of Great Lakes Brewery Pumpkin ale at my local LCBO for $4.95, a great deal for a limited edition thing.
It has hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and all spice, and of course a generous amount of pumpkin, all the flavours that make you think of Fall. This is definitely in my top list of pumpkin flavoured things!
