Beer of the Week: Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale

My BMLC teammate Stephen Magee is quite possibly the greatest Dogfish Head fan in the world so he's kindly volunteered to review a few of their finest ales in the coming weeks. This week's entry is the Punkin' Ale, which I'll definitely vouch for! Here's Stephen now:

Love the pumpkin pie that the fall season brings? If you are like me your mom made it with some spice and you had to have it with ice cream. Well each fall Dogfish Head releases another off the hook beer made from pumpkins and it will tingle your tongue. Most seasonal releases from your average brewer may leave your mouth board out of its gourd. This brew will wake up your mouth and treat you to a flavor fest. The smooth rich brew washes down cold without the need for ice cream. At first sip it may taste like any other pumpkin brew. On second sip you get a taste of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and brown sugar. This beer is brewed with real pumpkins and hops. Sold in a four pack this can run $12.00 if you get it on seasonal special $8.99. I have sampled several other pumpkin ales and this one has more flavor and body that the others, not for the Bud or Miller palate, but people who enjoy a good beer will ask for more. This beer is not one that ages as well as others so get some and drink it up. I have had a bottle last 6 months, but after that you may be wasting the beverage. Best to get some and you will treat not trick your taste buds and the buds of all your friends. As one bottle of Dogfish Head (Burton Barton) say’s “Please share it with loved ones and hoard it from the non-believers”!
