Punkin Ale - Pumpkin Ale - Dogfish Head Brewery - 7% ABV

Pours a medium amber with a small head with ok retention for a pumpkin. Aroma is light but nice, with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. What I like about this beer is that it gives you all the flavors you would expect but it doesn't punch you in the face with them, in other words it's got a high drink-ability. All the flavors are there pumpkin, cinnamon , allspice, etc but they are pretty subdued. It's really more of a brown Ale with pumpkin tendencies and this is not a sweet beer by any means. If your easing into the pumpkin ales and you want to be a part of the pumpkin crowd but you don't want to be spiced out this is your ticket. 

Rating of 7.9 out of 10 in the pumpkin ale category.

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
