So it's time for the pumpkin beers again. I've tried a few local renditions. Upslope has a nice one. It seems to be relying heavily on pumpkin spices, perhaps less on pumpkin - very subtle, very nice though.
Another one is made here in Denver by Eddyline Brewing. Pumpkin Patch Ale has a deeper, richer pumpkin flavor. It's a borderline too sweet, but does have the full body flavor of real pumpkin. It's almost as if you're eating pumpkin pie, but at 5.5% alcohol it's not overbearing.
I had the Dogfish Head selection last week, this is always an excellent choice. They always put out a great, well-balanced product. With hints of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, it feels very fall appropriate, but it still maintains the Dogfish taste and feel.
