Country Girl is brewed with one major kabocha addition during mashing -when it is added to the malt porridge and liquefied by the heat and the enzymatic activity of the mash, and one smaller priming addition added directly to the keg during packaging in order to augment the secondary fermentation. In the pint glass, Country Girl Kabocha Ale will present itself with a dense creamy-white head and a slightly hazy orange-amber color. In the nose, you will detect a hint of kabocha sweetness that will give way in the mouth to the subtly sweet flavor of kabocha and honeyed fruit. The finish will be dry and fleeting with a residue of alcoholic warmth.

My Bottom Line:
This quaffable Pumpkin Ale lays out its cereal and fruity sweetness into a lean body where pumpkin does not override every other flavor.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy pale orange.
-Earthiness appears in the back, maybe a result of the supporting hops.
-Carbonation is rather low, making this absurdly drinkable.
-This one didn’t stand out much at Baird’s fruit beer festival, but it stil provided a fine quencher.

Hazy amber color. Slight hop character in the nose, but undistinguished. Mouth starts a bit hoppy, but then malts play the bigger role with hints of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, spice, but after drinking a very complex Octoberfest, this is a bit of a let down. This beer was lost on me.
