Southampton Pumpkin Ale
I picked up a bottle of Southampton Pumpkin Ale from Pinocchio's in Media, PA. The beer pours an orange-copper color with a foamy white head. The aroma consists of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice. The taste is actually quite smooth and drinkable. Most of the flavor comes from pumpkin, but there are great allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon accents. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. I thought that this was well balanced pumpkin beer, without any of the spices overwhelming the others. The Southampton Pumpkin Ale comes highly recommended by me.
