Tommyknocker Brewery- Small Batch Harvest Pumpkin Ale
September weather calls for Pumpkin Ale
Fall is the time to be outdoors. Everyone, including myself, loves the summer weather, but there’s something very charming and complimentary about sipping on a nice brown pumpkin ale and not wasting headspace on whether I need sunscreen.
On this comfortable, cloudy, yet casual day, I played a little catch with my pup and enjoyed a pleasant fall pumpkin ale by Tommyknocker Brewery. The thin texture was complimented with a hint of cinnamon on the start, finishing off with a spicy nutmeg. Notes of roasted malts came through with little to no hop characteristics (which I don’t know how I’d feel about hops and pumpkin but I’d love to try it) and the strong molasses tones complimented both the spicing and the texture. On a day like today when there is time to kick back and enjoy the crisp fall breeze, I can say that I would love another Tommyknocker Pumpkin to compliment the changing of the leaves. (woah that rhymed)
