The Return of Pumpkin Ale

Saturday, September 19, 2009

We've really started to officially transition to fall here in New York. The air is starting to get a little bit crispy, the weather a little bit cooler, the days a bit shorter.

And after the day I had (busy, busy!), all I wanted was a pumpkin ale.

My cousin happened to post her recommendation for the best pumpkin ale on Facebook last night, and since it's brewed right here in N.Y., we decided to check it out at the store. We found it, in the form of a 22 oz. bottle. And it was quite pricy for beer. But we picked one up anyway, just to try it.

All hail THE KING...

Pumking, that is.

We actually weren't all that impressed with it. It was a bit sweet, which is weird for beer. It's fine for a once-in-a-while type thing, but I think we're going to stick to some of the others. When we were at the store, we also picked up a 6-pack of Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale, which was good. But I think our favorite is still Saranac's version, which we purchased several times last fall.

Just another reason to love fall. Gotta love pumpkin ale!
