In this fall beer blog, we are going to sample a Lucky Girl Brewery and it is Haunted Pumpkin Ale. This is the first both this beer and brewery is being featured on this blog. This is the first time these beers are making it out of their brewpub and the southeastern Michigan. I was pretty interested in this brewery. Here is a story behind this craft brewery from their website (www.luckygirlbeer.com):
The iconic “pinup” girl was first created for our WWII soldiers as a gesture of good luck for our young men, giving them a little piece of home and comfort on the battlefield.
In the post-war era, she became a symbol of American prosperity as the United States experienced economic growth like never before seen. It was a time when we were all proud to be Americans, and motivated to make this country great.
Today, Lucky Girl Brewing Company represents that same feeling of unity, nostalgia, and the heart of Americana. Enjoy a Classy & Sassy Lucky Girl beer as we toast to our heritage and to our American pride!
I do not see anything saying who the owner and when they opened. I just found this on their website for their back story on their name and their labeling on their packaging. If you know something, please, let me know so I can add it to this review. Let us get into pumpkin ale.
This pumpkin ale has a cloudy bronze color without a head. The aroma has a heavy cinnamon to a light nutmeg with a touch of pumpkin in background. The taste has a light carbonated sweet malty notes. It is pretty faded between all the tasting notes. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
It’s that time of the year. Ghosts and Goblins, and fall’s favorite treat – HAUNTED PUMPKIN ALE. This tasty brew of fresh pumpkin, 2 row malts, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg is frighteningly good to the last drop.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I love the packaging and it does stick out from all the rest of the pumpkin beers on the market. I would say the only package that beats it out is the New Belgium Pumpkick Ale. As far as the liquid and appearance. I love the look and the aroma from the beer. I was getting pretty excited on trying this beer. I was pretty disappointed with the tasting notes. There is no pumpkin notes with slight cinnamon and nutmeg notes. It is pretty weak. It is pretty dinkable. If you can get a bottle, I would try it at least. Here is a example of a beer from Michigan that is not really good. This beer is from Michigan and it does not make it good. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
