Weyerbacher Bewing’s Imperial Pumpkin Ale is the big beer of pumpkin ales, at 8.0% ABV. It isn’t as spicy as the ales I’ve already reviewed in this series. It is brewed with Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cardamom and Cloves, but they’re supporting characters in the cast that make up the flavors of this beer. It has a medium to heavy body. The nose has a lot of pumpkin and a hint of spice, and the middle is sweet, slightly tangy, and mellow. You get just a bit more of the spice in an otherwise uneventful finish. It’s a solid effort.
I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
This is part 3 of a 8 part Thanksgiving weekend series.
