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.
