Pumpkin Beer Nine, This One is Fine

I think by the end of this endeavor I will have created an excellent (adult) skipping rhyme…

Well I am nine beers in and the diversity of pumpkin ales has made this task far more enjoyable than I thought when I initially posited drinking a pumpkin beer a day for nineteen days. Luckily there hasn’t been anything undrinkable so fingers crossed that Tree Brewing Co.’s Jumpin Jack Pumpkin Ale continues the streak.

 

 

Jumpin Jack pours a deep amber colour with tons of sediment. There is a small amount of cream coloured head that has good staying power. There are hops and pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Jumpin Jack has good body, edging towards a medium bodied ale, which suits the complex flavours happening in this beer. Earthy pumpkin comes through as you drink it and the hop and spices also linger making this one a bit more substantive than some of its’ pumpkin counterparts. The finish has a hoppy bitter quality. Overall another really drinkable pumpkin ale.

 

I give Jumpin Jack seven candy corns out of a possible ten.
