Welcome to Manchester!!! Arrived at Manchester airport for a 1/2 marathon over in New Market. Was picked up by my bro-in-law and quickly swept away to Milly's Tavern to begin our pre-race inebriation. The Pumpkin Ale was a solid beer, and had a wonderful nose and flavor. The color was clear Golden and the glass came lined with sugar and spice!!! There was a thin head that left a good lace. The sugar & spice really made this beer. I tried to taste it without the sugar and spice and it just didnt match up. The sugar and spice really helped to bring out the flavor of this beer. The mouthfeel was fine...couldn't drink alot of it, too sweet, etc. Definitely worth a try.

This beer was served with nutmeg, cinnamon, and brown sugar on the rim of the glass. Though this made reviewing the beer itself more of a challenge, it did make for a very tasty drink.

This beer was a light amber color with white foam. The smell was nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste was mellowed by the pumpkin content, and there was some spice in the flavor. There was little to no hop character. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy, and the added brown sugar on the glass enhanced the pleasant mouthfeel. The drinkability was very good. This was a very nice pumpkin ale.

Ok, I had to try this one since my brother's girlfriend was raving about it. I'm a huge fan of the pumpkin beer genre. I have to say, the sugar-rimmed glass was a nice touch, adding a unique and specialized element.

The color was a light and translucent amber with a whitish foam head. The smell was definitely pumpkin and nutmeg as was the taste. I tend to like my pumpkin beers to have a bit of a stronger flavor whereas this was more subtle. However it had a nice taste when it blended with the brown sugar rim. The beer was smooth and a quick drink that went down easily. Overall, a very good beer, but will I drive the extra miles for it next time? I'm still on the fence.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, orange-copper coloring with a filmy, white coating of head. Aromas of a floral, semisweet pumpkin scent, with very subtle nutmeg spicing. Flavors are more pumpkin than the nose reveals, with a cinnamon and nutmeg undertone that balances the flavors. Light, round bodied, the beer has a subtle, bakery sweet aftertaste. Smooth, clean finish, and combined with the low ABV makes this unbelievably drinkable. Not the tastiest of pumpkin beers, but not bad.

Served on tap at Milly's tavern in Manchester, NH. The glass came with cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, and other spices around the rim in the style of salt on a margarita glass.
A - Color was clear, light copper with almost no head at all.
S - I couldn't get a lot of smell since the cinnamon/sugar on the rim overpowered everything else. After getting rid of most of it, the pumpkin smell did come out.
T - Again, the sugar made it hard to judge, but nothing stood out to me. The pumpkin flavor was there, the spices were there, and not much hops (which is fine for this style). Nothing overpowered, but I also didn't get a feeling of good balance either. It was as if all of the flavors weren't strong enough.
M - Good mouthfeel for the beer, but the sugar on the rim kind of ruined it all for me.
D - Okay drinkability, but Milly's has better beers to offer.

I was disappointed by this offering, especially because I had been waiting for it to be put on tap. I will get another and ask for no sugar on the rim and perhaps change my tune.
