Fall's Here.....Grab a pint of pumpkin beer

Fall is officially here. The leaves are bright orange and brown, the air is crisp, this weekend was thanksgiving weekend, and halloween is just around the corner.
and it got me craving a pint of beer with a real seasonal taste.
After the home opener Canucks game (compliments of Heather - Thanks m'lady!, we bussed back to Kits and stopped by local watering hole Corduroy for a couple of beers to cap off a great fall day.
The server described the specials and we each got a bottle of St Ambrose Pumpkin Ale- featured at $6.
It tastes like fall. Although it was dark in colour and looked like it would be heavy, it was crisp and light with immediate, yet subtle cinammon, nutmeg, and caramel. Then a definite pumpkin taste with every sip.
I loved it and can't wait to try some other varieties of pumpkin beer.
It should help ease the pain of saying good-bye to summer.
