In my ramblings about pumpkin beer last month, I wrote:
I think it would be fun to do a pumpkin beer tasting; gather as many pumpkin ales as you can find (homebrewed included!), draw up some rating sheets, and go to town.
And a bunch of blogs have seemingly taken up the call.
- Lyke 2 Drink tastes six pumpkin beers: Saranac Pumpkin Ale, Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale, Dogfish Head Pumpkin Ale, Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale, Wild Goose Pumpkin Patch Ale, and Edenton Brewing Pumpkin Head. All get good marks.
- Over on The Spirit World, they taste three beers: Shipyard Brewing Pumpkinhead Ale, PostRoad Pumpkin Ale, and Dogfish Head (again). They declare Dogfish Head the best of the lot "by far."
- The Roughneck’s Take on Beer blog is just going to town on the pumpkin beer… I’m not even going to try to list or link them all, just go look at the front page.
This must be the year of the pumpkin or something. I picked up some Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale yesterday, but by and large I’m just not finding a good selection of them around here, which sucks. I guess I’ll have to make some more.
