Game Day Beer Review: Anderson Valley Fall Hornin' Pumpkin Ale

Fall Hornin' was poured from the can into a pint glass on a recent autumn weekend. The beer was a brilliantly clear, tannish-red color with a mocha-colored head that was composed of bubbles of mixed sizes.

The fall offering from Anderson Valley smelled mostly of unidentifiable pumpkin pie spices, but we did discern cinnamon and just the a slightest hint of Band-Aid. Pumpkin spices dominated the upfront taste, as well, and we tasted the cinnamon and perhaps some nutmeg, as well.

The sweetness of the malt was a little more than we would have liked to have seen -- this is not something that we would choose to session.  The beer had a medium mouthfeel with average carbonation. B
