Hit Me Over the Head with Gingerbread!

Love it or hate it... but you won't mistake it!

Have you ever been hit over the head with a loaf of Pumpkin Gingerbread? Try Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale! It smells like a fruity ale, but that’s how it sneaks up on you quietly. BAM! One mouthful and you’re drowning in a spice EXPLOSION! Imagine drinking a gingerbread pumpkin loaf cake.

The smell is fruity and slightly sour, almost like an apricot Lambic. This comes back around as a citrusy flavor after the initial spice bath. The beer finishes sprightly with the taste of molasses.

It’s a topsy-turvy ride. Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale manages to taste spicy, foamy and deep without tasting sweet or heavy. How do they do it?

In my experience, this beer is very polarizing. You’ll either love it or hate it! When I first encountered Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale in J&M’s fridge while taking a break from rollerskating around their loft, I was thrilled to discover an ale so indubitably pumpkinacious. But citizen blogger Karl L. and international playboy Viv proclaimed it “disgusting.” Regardless, I’m a fan and whether or not you like it, you cannot deny that this is a PUMPKIN ALE!

What about the Kennebunkport brand of beer? It’s produced by Pugsley Brewing Company, which is actually owned by Shipyard. Pugsley are “contract brewers” which means they create private label beers for other companies. My dream is now to have a beer named I Love Pumpkins Ale!

Yeah, I guess I tried the IPA too...
