look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Bottled: Sept. 2011; Poured in a pint glass.
A - One inch off-white creamy head with good retention; Very dark tea brown color with a fairly cloudy appearance; Decent lacing left behind
S - Very light, refreshing, and floral-like; Notes of pumpkin, yams, and lemons with a subtle earthy quality
T - Interesting combination of pumpkin, yams, lemon, and spicy/floral flavors up front; These flavors gradually turn into more of a toasty, woody, and earthy taste with lingering yams in the background; Aftertaste is similar to what I taste after finishing a bite of pumpkin pie
M - Good amount of carbonation; Medium bodied or a tad less; Slightly dry finish
O - This is not your typical pumpkin ale. There's a lot of common spices used for pumpkin ales that are not present in this beer. When leaving out these spices, and adding ingredients like lemon, birch bark, and yams, this brew becomes quite unique. Though different, I thought the aroma and taste were pretty enjoyable and still captured the essence of Autumn. Overall, this is a nice pumpkin ale to break the monotony that exists within the style.
