Poured into my Hyland Farmhouse pint glass.
Hazy light amber body with a very pronounced 2 finger off white head. Great retention on the head. Lots of large fluffy bubbles. Thick, streaky lacing.
Immediate nose of pumpkin pie and spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon and a murky fruitness.
Pumpkiney on the tongue, but with a definate hoppy bitterness. Maltiness is balanced by the bitterness. Pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, etc) makes itself known again. A bit hoppier than some of the pumpkin beers I've tried.
Medium mouthfeel, seems to get a bit bigger as the beer warms.
All in all, a nice pumpkin ale. Not the biggest in terms of drinkability, but still a nice autumn offering. Would be great with some pumpking pie (duh) to cut some of the bitterness. But that's just me.
