COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale is a barrel-aged ale brewed with Kentucky-sourced pumpkin, richly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. As the ale is aged in fresh bourbon barrels, the sweetness of caramel and vanilla are imparted upon the brew and complement its spicier base. At 10 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), this robust, limited release seasonal makes for a flavorful sipping beer to slowly warm up with as the weather cools. Some retailers will be offering collectible jack-o-latern snifters along with the ale.

Pours an orangish amber color. Aroma and taste are a good balance of pumpkin, spices, and some bourbon.

Draft at Broadway Brewhouse. The pour is a mild darker orange. The aroma is a perfect mix of bourbon and pumpkin. The taste is nice. Not too much pumpkin, not too much bourbon, but both are present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very smooth taste from beginning to end. The head is adequate in size but very soft to the touch.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 112714-1. Orange, headless pour like the "Headless Horseman." But I do truly like to have a little head on my beer although some others may not. Otherwise I get a "flat" perception. The aroma is nice with a muted pumpkin spice character and an abundant cinnamon spice character. Decent medium to above medium body. It has some stones. I id not get a whole lot of bourbon on the nose but it seems to sneak in a little more in the flavor. Excluding that, I get a sweet pumpkin and cinnamon sensation in the taste with a clean finish. Sweetness abounds!!!

I love it so much that I practically bought out the North shore :) Just realized it was 300 calories. Oh Well its seasonal so I will over look that. Love it.
