Lincoln Abbey Next of pumpKIN

For my sixth homebrew batch, I made a pumpkin ale and named it Next of pumpKIN. The beer pours a dark amber color with some orange hues and a frothy beige colored head that lingers for a while and leaves a light lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and molasses. The taste is is smooth and rounded with pumpkin and vanilla on the front end before it dries out a little bit with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Some molasses sweetens up the finish so it doesn’t dry out the mouth too much. The alcohol content is 7.8% ABV. I was impressed with how my pumpkin ale came out with a nice pumpkin sweetness and not overdone on the spices.
