For the first of the Re-brews, refer to this post!
Our second sampler in this series was Smuttynose’s Pumpkin Ale. Smuttynose has one of the cutest mascots, a little harbor seal, and they are relatively local (in the way that “New England” kind of ends up being a conglomerate of local). I can’t comment on the color or anything of this one because I just drank it straight from the bottle like the classy lady I am.
I am not a fan of hoppy bears, and this was a very hoppy beer. I was not able to get much pumpkin taste through the hops. I just really don’t have much to say on this one: adorable seal, super hoppy, would not drink again. If you like IPAs, this is probably the pumpkin beer for you.
