Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet – The Great Pumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale

IMG_6394[1]In as much as porters and stouts easily lend themselves to the fall and winter seasons, ales also play a role this time of year.  Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet – The Great Pumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale is a solid selection for this time of year.  The attractive redish-gold color helps to put you in the mood to watch the colors of the leaves change. The flavor is a little sweet, but not overly so, and the pumpkin flavor is mellow without slapping you in the face.  If you pay attention, you can even taste a bit of bourbon (cha-ching!) and vanilla, as well as the standard pumpkin spices. Not that “standard” is a letdown, you understand. In fact, it’s the tasty initial flavor upon which many of the other flavors are based. If you don’t mind sitting outside in multiple sweaters on a chilly afternoon with your friends, this ale is the perfect choice while sitting around the campfire and forgetting the day’s toil. Cheers!
