Upslope’s Pumpkin Ale hardly tastes like pumpkin, but it tastes like fall and that feeling you get when the leaves change. It’s slightly bready and creamy, and extremely light on the tongue for how high the alcohol is. Not sweet at all. Not sure if it’s because of the baby bear pumpkins Upslope uses instead of regular pumpkins, or because of the lack of sugar and pumpkin spice, but whatever it is, this is a winner. It’s a pumpkin beer if you put a pair of binoculars on your taste buds and search for the spices. It’s a good beer first, and a good pumpkin beer second.
