4.13/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
Appearance: Pours a medium orange-caramel with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. Nice lacing.
Smell: Sweet malt with pumpkin and a nice mix of pumpkin pie spices including nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. The smell is a little more subdued than I had hoped for, but the aroma that is there smells good.
Taste: Delicious mix of pumpkin pie spices up front followed by sweet malt in the middle before ending with a decent hoppy bite at the finish. Aftertaste is spicy with a touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. The elevated ABV% is very well-masked and it goes down very smooth.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. One of the best pumpkin ales on the market. Like almost everything from Cigar City, I highly recommend this one.
Serving type: bottle
