The Pumpkin Head Ale is a bold beer with a light coppery orange color. Pleasing aromas of pumpkin and the perfect blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Carapils and Caramel 10L keep the colors on the lighter side. Flaked barley adds to the creaminess of the 29 oz of pumpkin in this kit. The delicate spiciness of UK Challenger hops adds balance to the sweetness of the pumpkin. A perfect beer to have after trick-or-treating or have it with your pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.
