Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
It has been a while since I reviewed a new American craft beer. I have entertained the company of American craft beer, just nothing that was completely new to me.
I received a bottle of The Great Pumpkin Ale by Cambridge Brewing Company as part of a beer transaction late in 2011. Never had anything from Cambridge before so this should be interesting. This beer had been sitting in the cellar mainly because it is a Pumpkin beer and I equate that with spice. Not a huge fan but I figured I had nothing to lose, especially since I really like the label.
The pour was typical of the style: golden orange, with a bit of white foam that eventually leaves nary a trace of its existence. The aroma was lighter than expected, still nutmeg and cinnamon carried the most presence. The mouth is similar carrying a bit of pumpkin. A delicate beer for the style that I would have again in the future (don’t say that much for this style). Enjoy!
Aroma: 7 (25%), Taste: 8 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 7 (35%), Overall: 7.6
