Samuin (So-when) is an ancient Celtic word for Samhain or November and it signified the beginning of the New Year and the final harvest before the cold winter months. People celebrated and gave thanks for their families and the bounty the summer had brought them. The holidays are all about family and friends and Halloween, being the first, always seems to be one of the most enjoyable. This beer is designed to bring back memories of childhood and eating Grandma’s pumpkin pie. When the nights begin to cool, leaves brown, witches fly and the ghouls are out we reach for a Samuin Harvest Pumpkin Ale and give thanks and hope you will too.

On draft at the brewery. Clear orange pour, with an off white head. Caramel, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, malt, some sweetness, and light allspice. Decent pumpkin beer, if your into that sort of thing.

>> Two versions of this on tap today, regular and one on "hop rocket" with cloves, cinnamon sticks, and EKG hops. Not adding it because I’m unclear if this is pre or post fermentation addition. The hop rocket version had good foam, hazy golden color in the glass. Nose is lemon tea. Taste is lemon tea, dry, chlorine, chemical, dusty. Eh. Not much going on. Regular version poured a low haze, deep golden color with weak foam. Nose is chlorine sanitizer. Taste is super chlorine and sanitizer. Gross. Can’t drink. Worse than the hop rocket version. Hop rocket: 1.1 Regular: 0.8

Tap, orange pour, nose is pumpkin, taste is cinnamon, okay overall but not my favorite of the flight
