Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale | Big Boss Brewing Company 

Style:  Pumpkin Ale 

ABV: 5.5% 


Pumpkin beer is not usually my go to, but seeing it's Halloween so why not? You've also have read my praise of the Atomic Pumpkin from New Belgium, for it's balance of spice, heat, and a solid pumpkin finish. Big Boss caught my eye wth it's season labeling and edgy-dark look. That aroma is subtle in it's spiced character with a hint of that sweet pumpkin seed scent. All at the head of this ale. The color is a nice copper and holds a thin, carbonated foam head. The overall body to Harvest Time is carbonated, billowing from the bottom that mellows as you drink. It brings that real pumpkin taste and Fall nostalgia of carving and drinking on Halloween. That initial taste is a sweet-pumpkin flavor with a nice, crisp spiced taste, right at the finish. Bringing the best parts of the holiday right to your pallet. You can pick up those fresh, sweet and almost earthy pumpkin notes; as a big character of the beer that reminds you of real seeds. The balance and style is there in the best way! Trick or treat Big Boss!

I am also not a huge fan of pumpkin beers but I am tempted to try it because of this great description. Keep up the good work Jordan!
