"The Great Pumpkin Ale"

Montreal

$8.49 a 4pk
  regularly $9.49

Tis the season... for jack-o-lanterns, ghoulish displays and pumpkin ales! While the seasonal creep extends into early August, the seasonal taste of fall is really never too early.

The Great Pumpkin pours with the burnt orange hue that is strikingly of backlit pumpkin. Out of its bronze and amber ribbons rise a spicy-sweet medley that floats upon the nose and taste with a maltiness that divides the line between caramel and toffee with a sprinkle of brown sugar for good measure. But the story is about the spices that waft about- allspice that's lead by nutmeg entice the senses with an exotic allure.

As the sweet middle opens up, a culmination that tastes like graham crackers at first, then french toast the next, and even a praline coat all begin to alternate. The thread that binds them is the cinnamon, clove and especially nutmeg for a spicy taste to offset the sweetness in much the same role as hops in common ale.

Medium bodied throughout, the sweetness begins to trail but its creamy-dry texture remains and supports the spices with a slight arid taste and a toasty, nutty finish. Even with the holiday spices echoing deeply in aftertaste, the ale offers a dryish and drinkable sense that develops late.
