Notes: Available in the fall.
Story: This is my favourite time of year. Pumpkin beer season. Luckily a few pumpkin beers are available in Winnipeg. Make sure you check this one out for sure.
Appearance: Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale pours an amberish orange with a bit of head. Leaves some decent lacing.
Smell: Allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and a hint of cinnamon.
Taste: Very nutty, a bit of pumpkin, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice being the prominent flavours. I think I notice a bit of orange in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Drinkability: I drank quite a few of these last October. And I have already had a few bottles of it this October. So it’s safe to say it is worth purchasing.
