40. Gritty McDuff’s Halloween Ale

If you enjoy your fall beer offering without a lot of spice or pumpkin flavor than this would be a good choice for you. Really there is nothing in this one that makes it a “fall” beer other than the very cool label and Halloween Ale name. Gritty’s makes quality beer that is best enjoyed in their brew pubs but the bottled offerings are not bad either.
Pros: Nice malt flavor – no strong aftertaste – great art on the label
Cons: Not sure what makes it a fall special – no pumpkin, spice or other special flavoring.

Brewers Description: Every fall marks the return of our legendary Extra Special Bitter for the season, Halloween Ale – the beer so good, it’s scary! From its humble beginnings in 1990 as a small-batch seasonal in our Portland Brew Pub, Halloween Ale has grown to be one of the year’s most anticipated beer releases. This robust brew has a deep amber color, a bold, malty palate and a well-rounded hop finish. The perfect beer for a crisp autumn day!

Halloween Ale is available in ominous six-packs, and on draft at frightening establishments all over the terrifying state of Maine. Be afraid, be very afraid…of running out!
