Captain Lawrence Brewing Company – Pumpkin Ale (2014)

NicAA: Clear, hay colored brew with a light head. Pumpkin puree and light spice aroma, both subtle. 7/10

NicTM: Malty, sweet pumpkin puree and the lightest hints of spice. Bright, citrusy hop profile, refreshing. Lighter body and smooth mouthfeel. 8/10

NicP: Flavorful and tasty smooth puree, accented by the fruitier, citrusy hops. 4p

NicO: A more citrusy, tropical feeling pumpkin beer, that utilizes spice but not in an overwhelming way. 84/100

AlexAA: Lightly orange w/slight haze, a mild sourness from pumpkin rises up in aroma but is then smoothed over w/nutmeg. 7/10

AlexTM: Brown sugar & nutmeg lead the way on this lighter bodied ale that stocks significantly sweeter pumpkin than you’d expect from aroma, dry finish w/ stronger hop presence cutting thru the caramel notes 7/10

AlexP: With spicing this subtle, you can trip over the vine into slightly too large a patch of pumpkins. 6p

AlexO: Nice. Fine. But when there are so many other options, this solid ale is easy to walk by and not notice. 76/100
