4.13/5 rDev +21.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured warm (sadly..) from a 650 mL bottle into a 1L stein.
A: My bike panniers disturbed the bottle somewhat, so my pour foamed like a mother and dissipated entirely. Nonetheless, the beer displayed a nice, clear orange hue with moderate carb and a little lacing. Pretty much as expected.
S: Definitely more subdued than the Howe Sound offering, but it smelled fine enough with a big malt pretense and some hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and (of course) pumpkin. Nice and hearty!
T: Much like the scent, but far less malty with a nice mulled finish. Again, subdued, but full and pumpkin-y regardless. Unlike other seasonal similar, this one seems "ordinary" enough to be offered on rotation--it's definitely autumnal, but leans ever-so-slightly towards a Winter Warmer. Mmm!
M: Sadly, a little underwhelming compared to the flavour profile. It starts off strong, with some moist, frothy bubbles and a bit of chew...but just goes after 2~3 s. Meh, still complements the palate nicely.
O: I'd give it a great rating, simply because of its repeatability: as stated previously, this isn't one of those "buy-once-a-year" offerings; no, I might actually grab another one, maybe even share it with friends. :)

Lighthouse Brewing's 'Pumpkin Ale' @5.5% served from a growler purchased for $10
A-pours a dark gold/orange with a super quick off white head leaving no lacing along the pint glass (something's still not right)
S-a mild pumpkin pie smell (no spice's), more of a chemical smell , not even a cooked pumpkin smell
T-not pleasant , not overly spiced , seems to be still missing something (taste)
MF-mild carbonation , no body , on my palate it seems very metalic going down
Ov-I still can't recommend this beer , now that I've tasted it fresh from a growler , it's improved butt something is still wrong with this pumpkin ale , sorry Lighthouse
