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.

The bourbon is still a bit overpowering to the pumpkin i would have liked to see a better balance between the two ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is alcohol, pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon with toast malt and earthy hops. Flavor is sweet pumpkin and toast malt, spices, light hops and bitterness, spicy alcohol and a dry finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

pottygok (472) - Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Aroma: Brown sugar, spices, pumpkin...smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Appearance: Clear amber with rich, tan head. Taste: Heavy sweetness with hints of sourness at the edges. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A bit overdone for my taste, this is a heavy pumpkin pie flavored beer. It's a solid seasonal, but rich. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear orange with a thick quickly dissipating head from bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is spicy: cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg. Surprisingly thick and uncarbonated mouth feel. Taste is quite spicy up front including the previously mentioned ones. Has a bite but not from bitterness. A tiny bit sweet with the barrel flavors coming at the end.

Aroma of bourbon and a pumpkin spice, pale orange color with no head. Taste as if someone dumped allspice in Jack Daniels. A watery feel with a spice finish.

Another delicious wonderful offering from Kentucky Barrel. The texture and color is consistent with others, this being more orange in tint with a hint of the pumpkin that's not overwhelming. Perfect for the fall pumpkin season! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
