It's that time of year again...pumpkin beer is showing up in the stores, and once again, I'm on the prowl for one I might actually spend money on a second time. This time, I might have actually found one.
Elysian's Punkuccino...a Coffee Pumpkin Ale.
There is a lot going on here...but it all kind of works. The coffee flavor is bigger than the pumpkin flavor...but that is okay in my book. It doesn't have a lot of 'spices' to it, so it doesn't end up tasting like a Pumpkin Spice Latte. It tastes like beer with coffee overtones and a light pumpkin flavor at the finish.
I wouldn't mind buying this one again...I just have to decide if I want to drink this one again, or try on of the other choices showing up in the store.
