Well, this is interesting. When I had this a year ago in the bottle it was pretty awful. This year I can't find fault with the stuff on tap.

Handsome amberish orange color in the tulip glass. A decent foam and nicely carbonated. The vegetable taste is kind of sweet, like butternut squash, but it has a sharper tang that provides some balance. The stuff actually tastes like pumpkin instead of pie. There is a little spice, but mercifully it's hot the cinnamon pie bomb that so many brewers subject us to. Warm and malty in a way that enhances the actual pumpkin flavor. Atertaste is a beery and slightly fruity with just a scratch of bitter spice.

This is definitely one of the better pumpkin beers I've had. Quite drinkable and tasty with food. On tap at Sea Rocket in San Diego.
