[Beer Review] Devil's Backbone – Pumpkin Hunter

Beer review part two! I'm enjoying this, I mean I get to drink beer and then write about it. This week I went with a fairly easy to find pumpkin brew that is also local to me. I love local breweries and really enjoy trying out their beers.

The color is one of the things that immediately caught my eye. It has a color not unlike the deep copper that one associates with autumn.  You get an aroma of malts and yeast when you pour this one into a glass. This beer makes a good head and has a bubbly mouth feel.

The taste is very light. It has a little bit of pumpkin and spice when you drink it. As it breathes you get a bit more pumpkin and spice but overall it's very subtle.

This beer tastes, feel and smells more like an Oktoberfest ale. It's smooth and easy drinking. This would be the perfect beer to have as you grill out with friends and look at the changing leaves.

I prefer a lot more flavor in my pumpkin brews, but if you are not fond of pumpkin beers in general, this one will be something I'd wager you'd like. Final say is that it's a smooth, subtle ale that you could share and I would definitely take it to a fall party.
