Texas Big Beer Brewery BIG! Pumpkin Pie Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Texas Big Beer Brewery BIG! Pumpkin Pie Ale. I picked up this bottle while in Texas at Hall’s Wine & Spirits (here) which is a must visit bottle shop if you find yourself in or around Dallas.
Commercial description: “A rich malty Pumpkin Ale brewed with pumpkin and spiced like Grandmaw’s pumpkin pie.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours reddish brown with a thin off-white head and leaves nice lacing.
Aroma: Toasted malts, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, molasses, nutmeg and allspice.
Taste: Toasted malts, pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, ginger and allspice), brown sugar, vegetal notes from pumpkin and boozy.
Overall: Smooth and thick, Texas Big Beer Brewery BIG! Pumpkin Pie Ale is a nice pumpkin ale. It doesn’t have the drinkability of some other pumpkin ales, but this 7.8% ABV offering is certainly worth a try if you’re a fan of the style.
