It seems that Nicole is not alone in her pumpkin ale obsession:
I am now inspired to put this in my next batch of homebrew:
I’ve never been much of one for fruit or flavored beers, but I will admit there is something about pumpkin ale. I think it’s the resemblance to pumpkin pie with all the spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves that often go into them. I do agree with Lew in the linked article, it’s almost like a comfort food. Once it gets close to fall, all I want is spiced stuff.
Now if the temperature here in Charleston would just cooperate with my taste buds! It’s been too darn warm to properly enjoy spiced beverages!
