Review: Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale

Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale from Federal Jack's Brewpub
Rating: C

First pumpkin beer of the season this year!

Appearance: Thin head, golden amber in color (rather less orange than I would have expected). Poor retention and no lacing.

Smell: Pumpkin pie spices, especially ginger. Some spicy hops and caramel malt.

Taste: Pumpkin-y, but slightly acid and artificial-tasting. Mineral water finish.

Mouthfeel: Spritzy carbonation, light/med body

Drinkability: Decent pumpkin beer.

I'm drinking some now. I think the price makes up for the not-so-great taste. Can't beat $5.99 for a 6pack at Trader Joe's
