If you like pumpkin spice and if you like ale and coffee, you will love this fabulous find. Pumpkin Spice Latte Ale is here and ready for some pop topping. It comes from Left Hand Brewing Co which is one of the country’s leading nitro breweries. It’s located in Colorado.
According to the brew masters, pumpkin spice fans have been requesting the company jump on the seasonal bandwagon for years. So for the fist time, Left Hand has released a pumpkin ale with spices and coffee. I mean everyone else is doing it, from Starbucks to Dairy Queen with their new Blizzard.
What is in the pumpkin spice latte ale
First of all, the nitro lends itself to the creamy, rich mouthfeel associated with a latte. We are off to a good start. Next on the to do list came the development of the much beloved seasonal spice. One that would mix well with the nitro and create that warm, comforting flavor that so many people love. The blend includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Coffee is the next big element, a premium blend from Boulder-based Ozo Coffee. No artificial coffee flavors, but the real stuff for a true latte taste.
On another seasonal note, Left Hand Brewing Co has also released an Oktoberfest Märzen Lager. I’ll give you the scoop on that one later.
In full disclosure, I’m not a huge pumpkin spice fan. Don’t judge. I DO love baking spices. mostly when they are in baked good. Oh, and also enjoy those notes when they occasionally surface in wine.
OK. Let’s get started with this pumpkin spice latte ale tasting.
