Gingerbread is another Pigeon River seasonal thatís not just trying to hint at the season. Itís a beer thatís straight forward with its delivery. Allspice, cloves, ground ginger, cinnamon, and caramel all come together to pour you the holiday season in a glass. A smooth finish leaves tastes of spices on your tongue just as if you took a bite of a fresh ginger snap cookie.

Courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a small head. Big aroma of ginger, vanilla and cinnamon. The flavor is just pounding with ginger. Cinnamon is still there. The base beer is barely noticeable.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of malt and gingerbread. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted malt, vanilla and gingerbread cookies. The finish is sweet with a ginger and vanilla aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled on draught at the newly opened Pigeon River taproom just outside of Marion, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark brown amber colored brew with fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind minimal lacing and a film top. Aroma of heavy ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with a liquid gingerbread flavor with additional cinnamon and vanilla. Finish has a quick ginger bite followed by some extra cinnamon vanilla and chocolate bread aftertaste. Those of you who grew up in Milwaukee may even remember visiting Capital Courtís Kookie Cookie House and receive a gingerbread man cookie after telling Santa all the impossible gifts your parents didnít want to afford. The Pigeon River Gingerbread Ale had the same flavor of those gingerbread cookies I remember years ago.
