So it has been a while since I have posted about any beer, but this was worth waiting for. I have once again tried another fall seasonal beer and it was rather grand. Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale is another great fall beer with a spicy and pumpkin taste to it. It’s very smooth and has nice hints of the pumpkin flavor as well as brown sugar. The Punkin is pretty high in alcohol content with 7%, but you can’t even tell it’s that high.
I personally think the Punkin Ale is far better than Shipyards Pumpkinhead Ale making it my favorite fall beer and pumpkin beer as of now. Dogfish Head makes some great beers, but most of them have been on the higher end of cost so I haven’t dared to touch them. The cool thing about the Punkin too is that it was the first brew that Dogfish Head ever made. It was brewed before the brewery was established in 1995. Punkin Ale is still the best selling seasonal of Dogfish Head. I was lucky that I got to try this at a bar in West Hartford where it was rather inexpensive. Defiantly give this one a try this fall before they sell out!
