Bomber at 40 degrees into snifter; allowed to warm up to around 50 degrees
Aroma of nutmeg
Head average (2.5 cm), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm broken layer
Lacing poor – few very small islands of tiny bubbles
Body light orange, chill haze which dissipates as the brew warms
Flavor is initially of nutmeg which fades to a sour vegetable earthy funk; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 2.75, Flavor 2.75, Palate 3, Overall 2.875. Final weighted score: 2.8125
Pretty much a one-trick pony – smells and tastes like nutmeg. The vegetableness (actually a fruit) of the pumpkin hides behind the spice. The 9% ABV is well hidden, the appearance is unremarkable. Some will rave, but this is just not an outstanding pumpkin ale.
