Pumpkin Ale – Steamworks Brewing

Seasonal Beer

From Steamworks Commercial Brewery in Burnaby BC comes their seasonal “Pumpkin Ale”.  The beer pours a copper colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of malts, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices and an overall sweetness.  The flavour is of malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, pumpkin, sweetness and a mild hops bitterness in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 16.  It keeps surprising me that I like pumpkin ales as I do not like pumpkin pie at all.  Like many other pumpkin beers I find this to be quite tasty!

Commercial Description:  A malty spiced ale brewed with pumpkin pike spices & 100 lbs of local pumpkin mash.  Our most popular seasonal ale.
