Pumpkin Spice, a Pumpkin Ale by Two Beers Brewing Company.

Served on tap in a pint glass at The Red Hot.


It works like this:

A quick punch of pumpkin flesh that turns to pumpkin pie and finishes on the spices, which linger for a long time.

The only negative is a bit of alcohol burn that sneaks in here and there, but it's a minor complaint.


It arrives with a slightly hazy orange body and a thin, brilliantly white head. The nose is pumpkin and spices—allspice, nutmeg, and cloves. The flavors are pumpkin and spices galore. The spices continue for a long time, with a long spicy finish, which is mostly cloves.

The mouthfeel is medium. My first impression is that it is a bit watery, but after the first two or three quaffs, that impression changes.


I had this with a Chicago-style hot dog, but this would be even better with cookies, especially snickerdoodles.
