Cheshire’s Pumpkin Ale by White Rabbit wins the award for happiest cat I’ve seen on a beer bottle. With fall officially setting in and pumpkin ale season in full swing, Cheshire Cat has plenty to be happy about. Cheers to hoping Cheshire’s can make us all happy cats!
Cheshire’s pours a dark amber with a thick, white head. The aroma has intense notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove with a light hint of pumpkin. There’s also an unexpected apple characteristic to the aroma that gives it a spiced cider feel.
The flavor is dominated by pumpkin pie spices with a subtle pumpkin presence. This powerful spice bomb will conjure deeply suppressed memories of attempting the cinnamon challenge. The finish also has a crisp apple tone that is probably causing you to question my beer tasting competence at this point. The body is light with a moderate level of carbonation that makes it very easy to drink.
Cheshire’s is a pumpkin ale that wants to be a cider. You may be thinking that I’m mad as a hatter, but I assure you that there is an apple presence. While the pumpkin is nearly undetectable, Cheshire’s spice game goes harder than any other. With that said, some cats will be happier than others.
