As an ode to the beginning of fall, we grabbed a sixer of Eddyline Brewing Pumpkin Patch Ale tallboys. The brewery itself is one of Colorado’s gems. Liz and I have frequented both Buena Vista locations on numerous occasions while hiking 14ers and dipping in hot springs. I should also mention that Eddyline probably has some of the best label artwork around.

“Golden quaking aspens, a dusting of powder on the peaks, the first fire in the fireplace, and a full moon represent Harvest time. Celebrate the bountiful season with our Pumpkin Patch Ale made with real pumpkin, spices, and honey. May your harvest be one filled with richness!” – Eddyline Brewing

I couldn’t wait to pour the full pint. Right from the crack of the can I felt my olfactory system light up. The beer has a nice pumpkin pie aroma with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice. It pours with a light, slightly bubbling, earthen head.

The beer first hits your tongue with a sweet honey and pumpkin blend. By the time it reaches your stomach the spices really kick in – a little too much for my liking. But I’m rarely a fan of pumpkin-style ales, and this one surpasses most.  Overall, it’s an enjoyable beer to sip while reminiscing about our many drives over Cottonwood Pass.
