About the Pumpkin Ale

The Pumpkin Ale is usually released as a fall seasonal and is brewed with pumpkin meat, puree, or flavoring. The beer is typically spiced with autumnal seasonings such as allspice, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and nutmeg. Its bitterness is typically mild with the spices leading the palate. A malty backbone can have a sticky feel.
