3.65/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle poured in to a pint glass.
A- Pours a slightly opaque amber body with a half finger off-white head. Good lacing. More than most of the style.
S- Very sweet and fresh smelling. Pumpkin up front and a distinct hop undertone. The spice is there, but not dominating.
T- Does not follow the nose the way I expected it would. Earthy tasting hop flavors and a bit of a bread like character initially, followed by a brief pumpkin taste, finishing quite bitter.
M- Medium-bodied brew with ample carbonation. Finishes crisp.
O- This one tastes more like an actual 'beer' than the likes of a Pumking. It is far from liquid pumpkin pie, but is still a solid beer. That said, I would still choose a Pumking or Horseheads Pumpkin Ale over this.
