9/18/2010: Back down to Ocean City for my buddy Donnie’s wedding. I am the best man, and I am a TERRIBLE public speaker. So at this point I am stressing out like crazy. Maybe two of these will help me calm my nerves a little bit for the time being. Oh, by the way this is the first picture with my new Android phone; Samsung Fascinate.

Jacques Au Lantern has one of the better noses out of the pumpkin ales I have tried so far this year. Smells a lot like pumpkin pie filling after you add all the spices. Caramel malts are laid out for the pumpkin, all spice and cinnamon to rest on. No sign of any nutmeg in this pumpkin ale. You actually get a little heat from the spice in the beer, but the spice flavor itself is not overdone. Very light bodied but well carbonated and finishes a little cry. I took two of these down without a problem. Easily the best beer I have tried from Evolution so far.

Picture of the day: What is wrong with people?
