4.2/5 rDev +6.3%
Look: Poured into a snifter because my tulips are dirty. Reddish amber in color. Poured with a 1-2 finger head which was retained for sometime and never really quite goes away completely.
Smell: Butterscotch and candy. Yes. I'm having a hard time getting pumpkin in the aroma. Butterscotch is very very strong to my nose. Maybe I'm losing my mind.
Taste: Again, butterscotch, with cinnamon and nutmeg. I'm getting just a slight touch of pumpkin at the end. But to me, pumpkin is not a dominate flavor in this ale.
Feel: Medium bodied, easy to drink. Carbonation is on my preferable levels, which is medium.
Overall: I really like this beer. I would NOT think this is a pumpkin ale if blind testing this beer. So maybe It's hitting it's mark as far as being a pumpkin ale, but it is good regardless. I was really looking forward to this beer, as Spring House is one of my favorites, but it's not at all what I was expecting.

Killer pumpkin ale. Sprint House has once again stamped their unique touch on another beer style.
Nose has this interesting presence that reminds me of a pumpkin flavored Jello brand pie with cool whip topping.
Taste in no where near the nose. It'c much more hearty and tamed than initially thought. Strong natural pumpkin presence with nutmeg and tame cinnamon & vanilla along with a good malt presence and hint of backing hops and dare I say citrus zest to round it out.
Mouthfeel is thin into medium bodied which makes this almost too easily drinkable. Only real letdown is the lack of carbonation.....I'd like to see just a bit more.
Overall this is an excellent Pumpkin representation and a top 5 of the style for me.
