Thomas Creek - Pumpkin Ale - Thomas Creek Brewery - ABV 7.3 %

Pretty big aroma of cinnamon , nutmeg , allspice and you can actually smell the pumpkin. This beer has a bigger vegetal pumpkin presence in the taste then most I've had, along with the usual suspects in cinnamon , nutmeg, allspice & clove. With all these big spices coming through I would have liked to see a bit more sweetness to balance things out , theres not much sweetness at all for this style and one of the spices I believe it's the clove is a bit heavy. I have to say it does stand out from other pumpkin ales so I give an A for originality.   Rating 7.3 out of 10 

SUMMARY : Big pumpkin taste , big spice profile, could have been a bit sweeter for the style.

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.
