The other half and I headed to Isaac Newtons for some lunch and to watch College Football. We didn’t realize that it was the same day as their beer fest, so the place got crowded very quickly. This was the first beer that I had while I was there.
Style: Pumpkin Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our pumpkin ale is brewed with generous amounts of real pumpkin blended into the mash. The subtle fresh pumpkin flavor is enhanced by the addition of a touch of traditional autumn spices and sweet dough, thus creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, a bold malt center and a crisp finish. We are proud to offer you a balanced and delectable fall treat. Suitable for zombies.”
Random: I’m really not that into “Fear The Walking Dead.” Initially, I thought it would be an interesting concept, but I’m just not connecting with the characters like I did the original series.
This beer poured with a half a finger of tan head that dissipated slowly and left a lot lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, bright copper color with mild carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of vanilla notes with some cinnamon. Just from the nose, it seemed like this would be a different take on a pumpkin beer. The taste was just like cream soda up front, with lots of vanilla notes and nutmeg. It then went into pumpkin and cinnamon and ginger spice. It had a thick body with moderate carbonation. This finish was lengthy with vanilla. This was a really enjoyable Fall beer and the vanilla notes gave it a nice depth that made it stand out from the other seasonal offerings. This is worth searching out.
