Big Boss "Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale"
Big Boss Brewing Company - Raleigh, North Carolina USA
Pumpkin Ale (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 16)



[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing to a light film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light bread malt and a mild doughy yeast with notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugar, clove and a bit of cinnamon.

The taste was sort of thin with a light brown sugar sweetness and a malty pumpkin flavor early on, then became infused with a mild dose of spices and had a slight astringent taste towards the finish. The flavor was short lived, fading almost immediately after the swallow and leaving nothing behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall this was like drinking a “Light” Pumpkin Ale, if there is such a thing. It did however possess a decent drinkability and a nice refreshing taste...
