Ahhh, the nights are getting cooler and it's finally time for fall brews! I picked this up at WalMart to get into the season.
This one pours a deep crystal clear red-orange with a one and a half finger foamy head that eventually settles to a haze over the brew. Soap-sud lace washes over the glass when swirled.
There really isn't much of a nose. Suprising considering the spiced nature of this beer. It smells lagery to me....a bit musty. There is not very much of the pumpkin and spice aromas that I was expecting. Smells slightly sweet...maybe some caramel.
The taste is somewhat more powerfull than the weak smell. I taste hints of caramel, only a little pumpkin, and the vaguest hint of cinnamon. There is a stale or musty cheapo-lager-ish quality to this pumpkin ale that detracts from the flavor.
This beers strong point is the finish, which is very caramely, sweet, clean, and very slightly drying. There is a actually a stronger pumkin flavor in the aftertaste than there is in the actual sip.
This one is watery, weak, and pretty mundane. I think that non-BAs would get a kick out of this one as it is not very complex or overwhelming. It doesn't really taste like pumpkins, spices, or ale for that matter. But, it was under six bucks for a sixer so I can't really complain.
