Comments: Is it time of the year for pumpkin ale already.  It’s still hot and sunny out and although culturally summer ends this weekend although as the earth revolves summer is still a few more weeks long.  Still it’s nice to have a pumpkin ale and this is a tasty organic one from a Vermont brewery.   It’s suitably pumpkin colored, smells rather gourdlike and has a spicy flavor that has hints of sweetness and bitterness but neither overwhelm.  So bring on Autumn I say – foliage, hay rides, apple pie, and pumpkin ale!
