It’s been a good weekend here. The weather was ridiculous – 80 degrees all weekend, which is incredibly warm for October in New England. Saturday night we went out to a local bar to watch the UFC fights with friends. The fights and the company were excellent.
Today we spent the day running a fashion show for my wife’s business. Due to the weather, the turnout wasn’t what we hoped. The show went off with a hitch and the people who did show up had a great time and bought lots of stuff, so it was all good! Afterwards, I shot home just in time to catch the Patriots beat up the Jets. Fantastic weekend!
Post Patriot’s game, I’m waiting for Sunday night football to come on and killing 45 minutes with a review of this Lakefront Pumpkin Lager. Before I even taste the brew, I can tell you this puppy smells seriously spicy. Nutmeg/cinnamon flavors are strong in the flavor as well, mixing well with the taste of pumpkin. This lager tilts over to the malty sweet side as well.
It’s a good brew, although not quite as tasty as a few of the other pumpkin beers I reviewed this fall.
I’m glad that pumpkin beer season comes and goes pretty quickly. It’s a style that I really enjoy for about 6 weeks, and then get sick of. This will probably be my last pumpkin beer review this year.
