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.
Serving type: on-tap
