Sweet, spicy and downright ghoulish: we tried a whole patch of pumpkin beers so you don't have to.
For those of us who prefer just a hint of pumpkin, that was its major selling point. Very fine pumpkin beer.
It’s a very standard, classic pumpkin beer with a nice, natural pumpkin flavor, no cloying spice and a nice finish and it’s proof that there’s no need to mess with a good thing.
As was the case with some other beers on this list, the small amount of pumpkin flavor in Smuttynose’s Pumpkin Ale prompted some of us to rate it highly.
It earned praise for daring to be different than your typical pumpkin beer. As one taster put it, “Stout makes sense for a pumpkin beer.”
The brown sugar that Dogfish Head’s popular Punkin Ale is brewed with sets it apart from other pumpkin beers.
