Picked up about 8 of these after my wife tried this at Cigar City and fell in love with it.
Served in a Disney Polynesian Resort shaped-glass.
A: Poured fairly clear, dark orange in color, and with a slight off-white head that didn't add up to much.
S: Not quite as marshmallowy as "Pumpking," but still quite dessert-like. I got some of the spices for sure, but it had a sweet potato-like quality that was to die for.
T: The best pumpkin ale I've ever tasted. Seriously, I got the pumpkin pie, of course, but it also had a bit of salt and pumpkin seeds to boot. Remarkable. The off-kilterness (eg. Zanzibar cloves and nutmeg) definitely paid off.
M: The prickle was perfect, the sugar content was there, but it was totally appropriate for Thanksgiving.
O: It lived up to the hype and then some.
