Homebrew Pumpkin Ale Part 3 - The Naming

2008 Pumpkin Alley Ale

The pumpkin Ale is complete.  The flavor of the fresh pumpkin is interesting.  On Halloween, when this ale was first tasted, the pumpkin gave way to hints of apple and fresh fruits, but not really muchf pumpkin flavor.  A few weeks later, the pumpkin is beginning to come through but its still not overwhelming.  The pie spices I added are very subtle, actually making this a very drinkable ale, not the Pumpkin Pie flavor bomb of a Buffalo Bills or Shipyard.

Next year I will try to get a deeper roast on the pumpkins and see if I can't get a warmer flavor.  Otherwise the 2008 Pumpkin Alley Ale is a success and I'm looking to making more next year!
