Harpoon Winter Warmer

harpoon_winter_warmer

Harpoon Brewery hasn’t messed about with the name.   They call this beer “Winter Warmer” which to me, means it’s a Winter Warmer.  That said, to me, everything from the nose to the middle to the finish screams “Pumpkin Ale.”   The nose has a bit of pumpkin, the middle is most predominately pumpkin and pie spices, and the finish is sweet pumpkin.  A good recipe for a winter warmer?  Sure, I suppose, and it’s a decent pumpkin ale, but I’d feel more at home drinking this beer in November rather than deep in winter.   If you like spicy pumpkin ales, this might be a beer you’d want to try.

I give it a 3.6 out of 5.
