A higher-strength pumpkin ale made with copious amount of fresh, locally grown pumpkins.
Pours rust-colored with a small white head. Smells like a malty ESB with a heavy (yet balanced) dose of pumpkin pie spice: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and hearty orange pumpkin. The beeriness and pumpkinness compliment one another quite nicely.
Tastes like it smells, only fuller and even more well-balanced. It's rare to find a pumpkin ale that has such strong pumpkin nodes but still tastes beery and doesn't get cloying sweet or chokingly spicy.
They had trouble keeping this on tap and I can see why. Maybe it's just that I'm not accustom to drinking such fresh pumpkin ale, but this stuff blew my mind: it's spritely, lively, and as warm as pie. Great offering.
Serving type: on-tap
