Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. – Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale (2013)

AlexAA: honey-toned pale orange w/ light frothy foam, bourbon and vanilla control the aroma, with the faintest hint of pumpkin 9/10

AlexTM: very soft oaky bourbon swirls w/ light caramel & faint cinnamon & pumpkin, once it warms. 9/10

AlexP: Competing with bourbon, the wood, and moderate spicing, tasting pumpkin this much shouldn’t be possible, but it is. 5P

AlexO: This ale combines nutty pumpkin pie w/ a bourbon neat in one – the only thing missing? A pipe & cherry tobacco. 93/100

NicAA: Bright orange, effervescent, white clingy head. Bourbon and candy-like sweet pecan aroma, tinged w. pumpkin. 9/10

NicTM: Staggeringly light for 10% ABV. Way less complex than aroma. Caramel malt, sweet pecan, v. smooth bourbon finish. 9/10

NicP: Very light pumpkin but what there is is very fresh tasting. Works really well at smoothing out the bourbon. 4p

NicO: Well, I thought I’d seen it all. Then this came along and threw my tastebuds a curveball. And I really liked it. 90/100
