I’m fortunate enough to work within strolling distance of CBC, but this is the first time I’ve picked up a growler. I’d heard a fair amount of buzz about this release, as it was CBC’s first bottled release available outside the brew pub, and rightfully so. At low abv, with a mellow balanced flavor, this is very drinkable pumpkin ale. It has more pumpkin flavor than shipyard’s pumpkinhead, but less spice.
Taste: B. A little too mellow for more than a B.
Drinkability: B+. There is no reason you couldn’t enjoy more than a few.
Vital Stats: 4.20% ABV, growler, served in a imperial pint glass.
