Another beer from the “beer tasting” the other night. I took notes on this one knowing that I would need them later… 🙂 Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale comes to us from Anheuser-Busch… those crazy guys that try to be craft brewers but generally end up not able to seperate themselves from the macro lifestyle.
They have done it again, offering a mediocre seasonal ale that promises a lot in the brand and delivers none of it. No pumpkin… not in the nose, body, or finish. Not really any spice… not in the nose, body, or finish. Just a slightly roasted malty brew with some small semblence of hops to make you think you are getting something worthy of the price they charge.
I would put this right on par with the Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale… definitely Middle of the Road.
