Exceptional pumpkin ale with a balanced profile and not too overwhelming pumpkin pie flavor. The aftertaste brings home the sweetness of the pumpkin, and solidifies this as a well-rounded seasonal ale. The aroma was very subtle, though, with not much to offer. Once again, Anderson Valley does it right.

Wasn't expecting a lot as this was the first Pumpkin Ale I'd seen from Anderson Valley but I was very pleasantly surprised with one of the better Pumpkin Ales this season. Will recommend this one to friends as it was smooth with lots of mild fall flavors while still presenting a nice pumpkin flavor. Excellent.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color, with some reddish highlights and three quarters of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, all spice, vanilla, brown sugar, pumpkin) nicely blended with some malt and subtle hops aromas.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. Tons of spice, (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, all spice, vanilla, brown sugar), followed by pumpkin, malt and finished with some beautifully balanced hops. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium with some nice carbonation. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is just a hint of alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow! This is an exceptional, exceptional pumpkin beer!! I love the huge amounts of spice, which is beautifully balanced with the pumpkin, sweetness, malt and hops. I’m definitely getting some more of this, and it’s definitely being added to my yearly pumpkin rotation! It’s absolutely one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had!

12oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours an extremely dark mahogany red with a couple fingers of light brown head that faded into a bubbly collar. A complex network of lace was left down the glass.
S: Strong pumpkin mixed with spices. Gingerbread, pumpkin bread, clove and cinnamon.
T: Follows the nose with a liquid pumpkin bread taste. Fresh pumpkin, clove and ginger dominate with cinnamon, cardamom, brown sugar and citrus zest poking through. The finish is full of doughy yeast and biscuit malt which adds to the pumpkin bread quality. Aftertaste is spicy and sweet with a hint of caramel.
M: Medium body, normal even carbonation, slick, greasy and smooth mouthfeel. Drinks very well.
O: Surprisingly good. Not sickly sweet or synthetic. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had.
