Let me preface this review by saying it is July 12... and we've had this beer since Halloween. It's been sitting in the back of the fridge... and like the fat kid at gym class... it was consistently overlooked and passed over for more superior brews.
I remember being surprised at how much of an ale it actually was... let's see if that holds up 9 months later.
appearance - amber to dark amber... good head retention...
smells of pumpkins... hard to pick up anything else... 36 weeks in the fridge might do that...
taste... pumpkin... spices - nutmeg??
MF - has a pilsener like feeling in the mouth... not bad.
the drinkability of most pumpkin beers might be one... to please the Halloween gods as not to be egged or spooked for not trying one at the party.... but this one is okay... I'd have a few... they did a good job of going with the subtle pumpkin taste... and really sticking to the idea that this is an ALE first and not pumpkin pie.
