Imperial Pumpkin Ale – A fall seasonal that ups the abv to 9% from a standard Pumpkin Ale. Imperial Pumpkin Ales are still typically mild, with a malty backbone that is balanced by the additional alcohol. The spice takes a lead, but is not overwhelming to the natural pumpkin that’s used in the brew.
“A strong contender in this year’s fermented pumpkin patch!” – Hunterdon Brewing
“…one of my favorite pumpkin beers.” – Passionbeer.com
Deep copper color. Aromas of savory spiced pumpkin seeds with a chewy, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a rich spicy pumpkin bread, blood orange marmalade, golden beet, and pink peppercorn finish. Vibrant, rich and balanced. (tasted on Sep-20-2011)
