Beers of Vancouver, vol. 30

It’s October, which means that it’s time for the Lower Mainland’s craft breweries to come out with pumpkin beers.  My favourite so far is Howe Sound’s Pumpkineater.

A challenger appears!  It’s Granville Island’s limited-release Pumpkin Ale, described as an “untraditional ale” with a “unique twist”.  Pumpkineater tastes like you’re drinking a very alcoholic pumpkin pie that’s also an excellent porter.  Granville Island’s Pumpkin Ale, however, tastes like Maudite Light.  You could be forgiven for mistaking it for a mild Trappist ale, as it clocks in at 6% ABV and doesn’t taste any stronger.  It’s a good beer, but it’s competing against great beers and my local liquor store sells it (in 650ml bottles) for only a quarter less than Maudite itself (in a 750ml bottle).

‘E’ for effort; please try again.
