Wolaver's Pumpkin Ale
Wolaver’s Pumpkin Ale from Al’s of Hampden for my fiancee. The beer pours an orange-tinted amber color with a frothy off-white colored head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and caramel. The taste is smooth and light on the tongue with a solid pumpkin base, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, and caramel. The alcohol content is not available online, but I would estimate it to be about 6.0% ABV. I thought all of the flavors in this beer were nicely balanced and it wasn’t too spicy or dry.
