from notes

I recall being served this beer at the 2012 Elysian Pumpkinfest - of course it was really just a shitty lager labeled as this. Finally, I get to try the real pumpkin smash...

One of the better pumpkin-oriented beers on the market - I dug the interplay of the typical Cascade lactose sourness with a rich pumpkin pie and spice mix. Cascade has been really impressive lately at crafting very high ABV beers that balance funk and richness. Good stuff.

A-Semi cloudy amber with some slight carbonation.

S-Good deal of pumpkin still, nice rum that seems to have mellowed out. Slight funk as well.

T-Starts with pumpkin nice mellow rum flavor with a tart finish.

M-Medium bodied, no alcohol heat, not much carbonation though.

O-I was worried about the rum barrel making it too sweet, but the beer was nicely balanced.
