Prototype 16 - Pumpkin Ale - 500ml Can.
6.4% ABV / 45 IBU
Pumpkin beers are usually amber to copper-brown with some orange hues possible, although lighter and darker versions exist. Most incorporate seasonal spices like allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger. These manifest in the aroma and harmonize with an overall malty profile that may include notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, and nuts. The flavor follows the aroma with a balanced presentation of malt and spice. Bitterness is generally low, and hop flavor, when present, provides only a hint of spiciness in the background. The actual flavor of pumpkins can be elusive, but a bit of vegetal sweetness may be perceived. The texture is typically full and chewy with pleasant alcohol warmth.
