Gourd-geous Brews--Black Creek Pumpkin Ale

Black Creek Pumpkin Ale is a spiced beer offered by the Black Creek Historic Brewery in Toronto, Ontario. This brew comes in 500mL bottles and checks in at 5% alcohol. The copper coloured ale poured with very little head and not much carbonation.  It had a lovely aroma of pumpkin and autumnal spices. BCPA has a thin mouthfeel--in my opinion, it's really hurt by under-carbonation. It has a nice pumpkin flavour that moves from sweet to bitter and features quality spiciness, but it's just too watery.

This beer has some great potential, but the execution comes up a bit short.  It's just too thin for my tastes. Still, if you like pumpkin, give it a try.  You might like it more than I did.
Rating: 6.0 out of 10.
