Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale

Well, it's been a little while since I've done a beer review. If you remember, I don't do nearly as thorough a job as Contagion does. Ah well... suffer through it.

I don't normally care for Anheuser-Busch products, with the exception of Amber Bock, but I picked up a six pack of Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale on the way home.

Now I'm sitting out here by the canal, enjoying the cool 60% temps... some consider it cold, but it's pretty damn nice, if you ask me. Granted, it ain't like being home, but it'll work. ;) Anyway, I'm sitting here, enjoying the annihilation of said six pack.

Upon opening the bottle, you get an immediate whiff of cinnamon, and some sort of spice... reminds you a bit of pumpkin pie. (Imagine that!) Can't really see any lacing or any such thing, The color of the beer is dark, but if I were inside, it would be a dark, orange-ish, amber, but I'm not inside, so it's pretty damn dark. I can see through it, as I can watch the light reflecting off of the water through the bottle.

A medium body, it's got a bit of a zing to the finish. This is a pretty damn good beer, and after a work out, it's exceptional.

Go get ya some.

In the meantime, I'm going to get back to work on getting the Chinese to change their zodiac to be something more PC. As it is right now, poor Sissy's a cock.

Pretty damn rude, if you ask me.

Sounds yummy! I'll have to look for some...

uh, you really need to pour it into a glass to judge color, lacing and head.

That's only for the first glass, or so. After that, it's just a waste of time.

Either way, it was still dark outside, so visibility was limited.

Have to check the shelves for that one...

I'll pass this on, but I think I'll stick with what I know...and eat my punkin on a plate!

Yeah, you suck. And what temperature is 60 percent, anyway?

Then again, my beer reviews would be much more brief, provide enough information, but really not be too informative:

Beer: (insert beer name here)
Review: It's beer, you fool, just drink it and stop your whining.
