Quick Take: Anderson Valley – Fall Hornin’

I’m trying out a new format here since I’m the only person that likes pumpkin ales.  I recently tried two different brews out, here’s what I thought.

Beer

From the website:

With a brilliant, deep copper hue and creamy beige-colored head, our Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale has inviting aromas of caramelized malt and baking bread with highlights of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and seasonal spices. The pleasantly creamy mouthfeel and silky body embrace the sweet caramel flavors and tang of spices (with just hint of hops) that ends in a smooth, round finish.

Look

Dark brown color with a thick head.

Smell

Smells like pumpkin spice, but not too much.  This is nice since some of the beers overdo it.

Taste

Tastes like Bud mixed with a pumpkin spice shot from Starbucks.  Not bad.

Final Thoughts

Good pumpkin beer, nothing special, but not overpowering.
