First beer to kick off the pumpkin binge-drinking spectacular is Two Beers Brewing Co. Pumpkin Spice Ale.
Pumpkin Spice Ale pours clear bright orange with just a little white head that quickly leaves. The pumpkin pie spices on the nose are pretty dramatic with clove and nutmeg dominating. The spices continue in the flavour but not through to the finish. The beer is light bodied and relatively low in alcohol at just around 5%. There is a slight metallic taste that did not seem to dissipate from the beer even as it warmed. Like all spiced brews, this one benefits from time outside the fridge before consumption. I found the spiciness mellowed out a bit as it warmed and subtler notes came to the front. Still not much in the way of finish on this one even by the end of the glass.
I would give this beer 5 candy corns out of a possible 10.
