Pumpkin Beers 2012

Each year I grow more and more fond of these seasonal pumpkin beers. I don’t know about you but, to me, pouring a glass of delicious liquid pumpkin pie is hard to beat. Let’s talk about 5 of these lovelies, in order of tasty pumpkin rating.

Georgia. Combining the Octoberfest and pumpkin ale styles, this beer takes my top spot this Fall. Terrapin is putting out some very nice beers, and this one is no exception. A good hit of pumpkin aroma with a lager and spice finish. Highly recommended to people who like to drink beer.

New Holland Ichabod Ale  Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012

Michigan. This is my favorite from last year, and still holds up quite nicely. A strong showing of pumpkin aroma and spice, housed in a nice, mellow ale. Kinda sweet.

Pennsylvania. This is the booziest of the bunch, but it comes together nicely. Another one that packs a good wallop of pumpkin and spices, and finishes with a strong ale taste. It’ll get ya drunk!

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012 Pumpkin Beers 2012

Delaware. Dogfish has a knack for making a pumpkin beer that a lot of people love. I like it, but somehow the brew doesn’t seem as drinkable to me as some of the others, maybe a bit bitter. This one is more like a traditional ale and less like pumpkin pie. Still good, though.

Maine. I actually like this beer a lot, but I can’t give it a high pumpkin rating for one reason: it doesn’t smell or taste like pumpkin. It has the spice though, and some decent flavor. Loses another pumpkin due to a watery feel.
