2.53/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Served on tap in pint glass. Located in brewhouse in Eureka, Ca.

A - Clear dark brown with moderate light through the edges, half finger khaki head with average lacing and average head retention.

S - Weaker than I expected, mostly nutmeg with a little pumkpin, roasted malts, brown sugar

T - Big pumpkin flavor with malty, caramel sweetness. Very spicy on sides of tongue with cinnamon and nutmeg, very little hop bitterness. Poor overall balance.

M - Awful, I asked if they were having problems with their lines that day. Light body, almost no carbonation.

O - I'd call this a less than average beer and would not try it again.

Tap handle says this is Winterbraun brewed with pumpkin and spices.

Pours a dark brown color with a slight white head.

Aromas are of pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugars, and caramel malts.

Taste is malty up front, dark caramel, slight sweetness, and cream. Finish is lightly spiced, some cinnamon, nutmeg, and hints of pumpkin. Flavors are pretty good, but muted a bit.

Mouthfeel is ok, but to thin for my liking.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer, but it falls short on body, and could use a bump up in flavors, but it's not bad, and worth trying,
