Willoughby Brewing Company Nightmare on Erie St. Pumpkin Ale

Here is what the Brewer Says An absolute fall classic!  this year we "hacked and slashed" 225lbs of locally grown pumpkins to bring you our ever popular and always delicious pumpkin ale.  Creamy with a medium body and subtle hints of pumpkin spice, this beer has been know to be called "pumpkin pie in a glass!"

My Thoughts: This brew poured a dark and cloudy brown in color with a slight white head.  The smell to me was just like pumpkin pie.  I smelled cinnamon, nutmeg and of course lots of pumpkin and pumpkin spice.   The smell carried right over to the flavor.  Those same cinnamon , nutmeg and pumpkin flavors were with you from start to finish with this brew.  There was a mild sweet roasted malt characteristic along with a slight bitterness at the end.   The mouthfeel was a little thicker and the carbonation was average.  I really enjoyed this pumpkin ale and I'd get it again if it were not going out of season right now!  

Serving Type: Draft

My Rating: Overall 83/100
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | drink: 4
