Lighthouse Brewing Co. – Pumpkin Ale Review
In the string of Pumpkin beers being pumped out by BC breweries comes the Lighthouse Pumpkin Ale. An annual staple in the fall beer drinker’s roster, this ale is topped with a finger and a half of quickly settling head above an amber coloured ale. The smell coming off this fall-inspired beer is of pumpkin, brown sugar, caramel and of course a touch of pumpkin pie spice. The flavour starts off light and smooth with pumpkin tones, a creamy center and a pumpkin finish. The flavours are fairly consistent through the entire profile with mild nutmeg and allspice tones, a brown sugar sweetness, pumpkin back and a very smooth and creamy texture. If you want a fall-inspired pumpkin ale then look no further. This beer screams fall in a flavourful and delicious pumpkin package.
