Imperial Pumpkin Ale
It’s easy to see why beers enthusiasts typically fawn over this regal addition to the debaucherous pumpkin beer category. The pumpkin, clove, and cardamom weren’t as obnoxious as they were in other examples we encountered. In fact, this had more in common with a Marzen, with its copper color and malty mid-palate. Dan and Sue Weirback of Pennsylvania’s Weyerbacher should be extremely proud of this outstanding pumpkin beer.
Notable tasting note: “Nutty and malty. This is like an Imperial Octoberfest.” -Gary Dzen
