With a brilliant, deep copper hue and creamy beige-colored head, our Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale has inviting aromas of caramelized malt and baking bread with highlights of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and seasonal spices. The pleasantly creamy mouthfeel and silky body embrace the sweet caramel flavors and tang of spices (with just a hint of hops) that ends in a smooth, round finish. Malts: Pale Two-Row, Maris Otter, Munich, Crystal 120L, Dark Chocolate, Pumpkin Puree Hops: Bravo

Dark brown. Nose pretty heavy with sweet spice and mild fruity pumpkin. Flavor is nutmeg and cinnamon with vegetal pumpkin and toasted malt. Lingering sweet spice and mild pumpkin. Decent, but a little odd.

Douberd (3187) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
(Anderson Valley Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a snifter. ABV 6% Dark brown colour on the body, with nice red ruby hues when hold against the light. Small and thin head, light beige in colour, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma, lots of spices, clove, cinnamon, cardamon, while there is some actual pumpkin aroma on the back, albeit faint. Taste is mildly sweet, again lots of spices, cardamon, cinnamon, a bit of ginger on the finish. A touch of bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, a bit low on the carbonation. Quite good.

This is fairly subtly spiced for a pumpkin beer which is different from being subtly spiced in general. It is a lovely chestnut brown color w/ a huge head and tons and tons of lace. This seems to be a bit less cinnamon/clove focused than a lot of this style and veers more toward nutmug. Tasting it, a resinous ginger character comes more to the foreground. I am not sure what I would guess the base beer of this is, something along the lines of an brown ale or maybe an American take on an ESB. There is a nice, toasty and very slightly roasty malt backbone to this that does a good job of supporting the spices, along w/ its creamy mouthfeel. I am not exactly a huge fan of the style but this is done well.

Pours a deep carmel color, with a tan head. Notes of Carmel and spice. More bland than I expected.

Brown and super fizzy, like a soda. Aroma is spice and co2. Flavor is mild, with some vegetable flavor, and an astringent finish. I can taste the pumpkin, but if I didn’t already know that this was a pumpkin ale, I wouldn’t have guessed.

Bottle. A flavorful balanced pumpkin beer. More of a gingerbread taste with spice ...not overpowering.

A little bit of a darker pumpkin beer. Pours a dark copper color with a foamy canvas colored head. Notes of chocolate, dark brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and earth. Sweet mouthfeel, medium length finish.

Can from CBB, this poured a much darker color than I had imagined rather than the reddish-brown I expected it was a dark brown with a thick dirty beige looking head that only reveals reddish accents when held up to the light. Quite a spicy aroma with some of the apple cinnamon quality to it but there are enough other spices coming through to keep it in the realm of pumpkin pie. Medium-thin bodied with a relatively smooth mouthfeel. The taste is maltiness giving it somewhat of a cookie-ish pie crust character then the spices and pumpkin come into play giving you that full on pie experience. Looking at the ingredients I am surprised to discover it is made with chocolate as well! Pretty good a bit more spic than I want but it is fairly evenly balanced and has enough surprises to keep me drinking.
