New Holland Ichabod Pumpkin Ale

New Holland.  A Michigan Brewery.  Not our favorite – we do like some better than others, though.

Ichabod is a pumpkin ale.  When you sniff it, you can really smell the spice, nutmeg and cinnamon, for sure.  It has been aged in rum barrels and you can almost taste it.  The spice is very pronounced and the pumpkin isn’t.  This ale isn’t strong tasting or bitter but I think the run barrels really help.  There’s a hint of vanilla left on the palate.

It isn’t bad but I don’t think we’ll be drinking a lot of this.  It might make a really good beer float with some really good vanilla ice cream.

Cheers!
