Day 8. I am starting to wonder if I will ever be able to reach into my fridge and drink one of my many non-pumpkin offerings ever again, this makes me a little sad, but I soldier on for the greater good …the greater good.
St. Ambroise Pumpkin Ale is deep amber coloured ale with lots of head on the initial pour. This ale has amazing clarity and your standard complement of pumpkin spices on the nose tinged with just a little bit of sourness. Malt and spices are the dominate flavours when you drink. As it warms the earthy pumpkin element comes to the forefront. Overall a very clean drinking beer; it is pretty light bodied and tastes uber filtered. Not a lot of finish to this beer but I really don’t mind the simplicity makes this one.
St. Ambroise Pumpkin Ale is an excellent starter pumpkin beer; a well-balanced ale with all the right pumpkin and pumpkin pie notes plus it is available at the BC Liqour Stores so you can get it pretty much anywhere.
I give this one eight candy corns out of a possible ten.
