1/7/2011: I am sure some of you are scratching your head saying “Wait I didn’t realize that Great Lake’s brewed a Pumpkin Beer!” Well the Great Lake’s Brewery you are thinking of does not. This Great Lakes brewery is actually in Ontario Canada.

The nose has a lot of all spice, with some pumpkin as well. The flavor is okay at first, but grows a bit old towards the end. All spice is the main character, with some pumpkin, and an odd hop bitterness that just doesn’t sit right with me. Light bodied and finishes a bit dry. Overall it was drinkable, but a little too bitter.

Picture of the day: As a web designer I can empathize with this. I hate comic sans.
