Pumpkin Ale
(Wild Onion Brewing Company)

America's first ever canned Pumpkin Ale. Wild Onion may be new to the canned craft beer game but they've got one in the record books already. Their Pumpkin Ale is one of two beers they currently can, the other being their flagship Paddy Pale Ale. 

From the Wild Onion Brewing site:

""Our classic fall seasonal. Crisp malt flavor blends smoothly with a hint of spicy pumpkin.""


Here we go...


Pour - dark amber with a bit of a foggy or misty haze to it. The head is stark white and fades to an ominous ring around the rather opaque reddish amber liquid that comes to light as this one settles.

 

Aroma - toasty, malty, brown sugar, pumpkin spice (allspice and cinnamon), perhaps some cloves as well. Its not overwhelmingly sweet smelling and that is a good thing. For me, its all about balance with this style.

 

Taste - nice and smooth on the palate. Some subtle spices and sweetness initially and a great malty/toasty finish. Not a whole lot of carbonation on the tongue which makes this one so smooth I guess. A couple sips and a little warmth bring out the pumpkin flavor. A little earthy, a little sweet and a little tangy. As you continue with this beer it only gets better.

 

Overall - Plenty of flavor is packed into this can and if you're a fan of this style than you won't be disappointed. Nice work. The bar for other canned pumpkin ales has been set high!

 

Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. This is a great pumpkin ale with some great packaging to boot. Makes a great beer for a fall bonfire!

 

Note - The first ever canned pumpkin ale was Central City Brewing Company of Surrey, British Columbia's Red Racer Pumpkin Ale. To learn more about the first American canned pumpkin ale click on the picture below:
