I am brewing the pumpkin ale extract kit purely because it sounds really good. During this primary fermentation period I have been trying a lot of them out there. I started with PUMPKING on the store clerk’s recommendation. UGH! Liquid potpurri. Shock Top had a decent one. But it is a pumkin WHEAT ale. There was another in there that was not notable. Today, the Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin ale really got me excited. It smells ALOT like how NB kit did on brew day.
I am anxious about this batch because of the vast range of tastes when it comes to these Pumpkin ales. Personally I am hoping the NB recipe is based on Sam Adams’ and not the PUMPKING stuff. Anyone have a comparison for me?
