I gotta come clean. I have liked every pumpkin ale that I've ever had. Having said that, Alley Kat Brewing Company's Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ale is outstanding!
If you have never had a pumpkin ale, I strongly suggest that you do. At least, if you like pumpkin pie. To me, every pumpkin ale I've ever had reminds me of this delicious holiday dessert, and this beer didn't disappoint in that department.
The Pumpkin Pie did more then taste like its namesake, it smelled like it too. In fact, my first comment was that it smelled like Grandma's kitchen at Thanksgiving.
Alley Kat Brewing Company is a small, scrappy brewery from Edmonton, Alberta Canada. It's the fourth oldest brewery in Alberta, and damn proud of it!
Would I recommend Pumpkin Pie? Oh yeah!!!! The only reason why it didn't get 5 stars is because I thought it could have had a stronger spice finish like the pumpkin ale at Puerto Vallarta brewer Los Muertos Brewing.
Try it, and let me know what you think.
