Cloudy copper color. Attractive, toasty aromas of fresh pumpkin cheesecake, carrot cake, and cinnamon roll with a supple, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a smooth, distinctive, long crusty apple pie, chestnut toffee, and spiced melon finish. A remarkably attractive and super tasty pumpkin spice beer.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Flavored ales may be flavored with, or affected by, the addition of unusual ingredients including chocolate, coffee, chili peppers or even juniper. In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements, and overall drinkability. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Williams Brothers Alba Scots Pine Ale, Southern Tier Pumking and Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.
