Fall Hornin' - Pumpkin Ale - Anderson Valley - 6% ABV

The first thing that I noticed when I poured this beer was how dark it is, it's one of the darkest pumpkin ales I've seen and pours with a small head that dissipates pretty quickly . Aroma is of big cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice , clove and pumpkin. As for the taste this beer has a very big spice profile. Cinnamon and clove seem to lead the way and you can taste the pumpkin , the problem is that it lacks balance in my opinion. I feel it needs a bit maltier presence to sweeten it up a little and the spices could be a more subtle. On a side note this Brewery uses Solar Power which I think is awesome and I will be trying other brews by them in the future.

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.
