Undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Slightly hazy amber color with a small but remarkably durable off-white head. Spotty scraps of lace are left on the glass.
Aroma: a bit too soapy/yeasty/musty, and has an out of place floral note. Pumpkin pie spices evident but not overdone.
Taste: excellent combination of beer, pumpkin and spices, with a fine sweet/bitter balance that starts mildly sweet and ends lightly bitter and earthy. Nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice linger on in the aftertaste. The spice load is significant but not over the top, allowing flavors of squash, malts and hops to shine through.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation seems spot on; medium body; very smooth.
O: Despite an unattractive aroma, Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is one of the best pumpkin ales I've ever had. Wish I'd bought more than one!
