After reading some of the reviews here, I didn't even want to open this. I didn't want to waste a beer opportunity with so many others in my cabinet waiting to be tried. But I'm so glad I did. I was expecting some kind of really funky flavor but it was totally mild and enjoyable.
Also as a variant of pumpkin beers, I expected to run out of steam early in the first glass out of the bomber. With most pumpkin beers, I've had enough about a third of the way into it. Just not my thing and they just don't seem to work and seem like just a mouthful of spices. Not so here. It's just a really pleasant and even sessionable beer. It packs a punch at 10% though. I got a little too tipsy to write down specific tasting notes.
The only bad thing I can say about it is that I thought the head was strangely fizzy. It lasted longer than a Coca Cola head, but that's the kind of head it was, fizzy and poppy and loose and ultimately gone, leaving nothing. I'd love it if this thing would maintain a creamy, robust, enduring Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale head, but alas.
GOOD BEER. Thanks, Bruery!
